INSIDER TIPS FOR FILMMAKERS:

MAKING A GREAT PROMOTIONAL TRAILER

Do you want to have a really good 2-3-minute trailer to send to producers, studios, film festival competitions, for your website & in social media ?  Haven’t quite finished post on your film yet, but want to promote it now?

Great trailers are in a special class of their own; little polished gems that showcase your film, and make people want to see more! But film trailers can be more difficult to make really well than the entire film, itself.  It can be more time-consuming, judicious editing must be a main concern, you have to tell the main story, theme & concept quickly, harder scene decisions need to be made, and you need to sell your film in less than three minutes. READ MORE HERE: 

SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT:

“Never let life impede upon your ability to manifest your dreams! Anyone can prosper and succeed if you have the passion, fortitude, and courage to try, with unwavering  perseverance, overcoming barriers and setbacks, with a firm resolve, fiercely refusing to ever tolerate failure.” ~ EE

 SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT:

~~ Join the Real Food Revolution! ~~

For centuries, cooking and eating food have been a necessity and a pleasure around the globe, as well as a reflection of cultural identity with place and people. However, with a lifestyle linked with convenience, fewer people cook.

Much of humanity is increasingly dependent on industrial methods of agriculture and food production, which rely on fossil fuels, chemical pesticides and herbicides, as well as toxic fertilizers and genetic modification, not to mention exploitive and manipulative marketing strategy, which keeps us shackled and enslaved in the name of economic growth and corporate profitability.

As a result, we have almost completely lost our capacity to meet our essential food needs locally. The simple fact of understanding what’s in season, how and where it grows, who grows it…have all become a rarity.

Studies show that gardening time, cooking time, and family times at the dinner table have almost disappeared. While this commercial food system is efficient and cheap, it has left us overfed on salt, sugar, and fats. And while we were eating, this toxic food system has impacted our planet – accounting for up to 30% of global greenhouse gases.

We have become disconnected from the food we eat. We discard 30-40% of our food, while others are starving. This disconnection is a true loss of culture with enormous societal, environmental, economic, and health impacts. We hunger for meaningful connection with the earth, for connection with the cycles and processes of nature.

IDEAS FOR PROMOTING HEALTHY EATING & LOCAL FOOD: Grow pollinator-friendly vegetable, herb and flower gardens, plant fruit and nut trees, bake your own bread, make yogurt, teach children where their food comes from, cook and eat together as a family, shop at local farmers markets, buy locally-produced organic foods from your supermarket.

We need to recover our own innate ability to feed ourselves! We must declare our independence from this exploitative industrial food system and get on with what is most needed now: localized regional, organic food. We need to start nourishing ourselves and our family with food that we grow, or is grown on farms and ranches close to where we live, prepared with love in our own kitchens. In ways that nourish body, mind and soul.

We…found so much to admire about Moondance – the programming is great and we love the commitment to true independence. Keep up the wonderful work.” ~ Kelly Leow, MovieMaker magazine

The 2017 Moondance International Film Festival is offering free competition submissions for filmmakers, writers & music composers from the Middle Eastern countries whose immigrants, refugee artists and others who were banned from entering the United States. 

This is an excellent move and will make Moondance really famous because you are along with others defying the White House. Great idea! Congratulations!” ~ Chris Nebe, filmmaker

I enjoy your newsletter.  I think it is a great idea to encourage filmmakers from the Middle East.“ ~ Vicki Bartholomew, screenwriter

MOONDANCE RECOMMENDS:

~ March 8th ~

GET READY FOR A DAY WITHOUT WOMEN!
For women, femmes, and allies:

Women around the world are getting ready to strike. As International Women’s Day on March 8th grows closer, grassroots feminist organizations have called for a one-day strike. Organizers are calling for women to stop working in whatever ways they can. And if they can’t? Women can wear red in solidarity. 

When you ban refugees, this is who you’re hurting. In honor of Women’s History Month, the Huffington Post rounded up 100 years of women refugees as a reminder of who the Trump administration’s dangerous anti-refugee rhetoric hurts most.   

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

IF THE EPA IS FORCED TO SIT ON ITS HANDS,
CITIZENS WILL GET TO THEIR FEET!

The US Senate confirmed Trump’s candidate, Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, as the new administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency. Pruitt has long been the best friend to the fossil fuel industry—he regularly puts the interests of polluters over public health and the environment, while also denying climate change and global warming.

Scott Pruitt’s confirmation as EPA administrator leaves little doubt that the GOP Congress and the Trump administration intend to weaken, if not paralyze or eliminate altogether, the nation’s environmental rules and regulations. But states, governments, and the EPA aren’t the only ones who have power to protect the environment. The nation’s environmental statutes have citizen suit provisions such that aggrieved citizens can bring enforcement actions—essentially stepping into the shoes of the federal government. Citizens can sue polluters for violating the environmental standards that apply to them, and expose any kind of corruption or self-dealing or secrecy.

States, the Feds, and the EPA aren’t the only ones who have power to protect our environment! CITIZENS CAN TAKE ACTION, TOO.

SOME THINGS TO THINK ABOUT:

“As wise women and men in every culture tell us: the art of life is not in controlling what happens to us, but in using what happens to us.” ~ Gloria Steinem

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“Loving yourself first is not about showing off or navel-gazing or self-aggrandizing. It’s about listening to your needs, protecting yourself with healthy boundaries, not attacking yourself with barbed words, giving yourself plenty of quiet pat on the backs for jobs well done, giving yourself space when you need it, treating yourself like you would your best friend and not working yourself into an early grave.” ~ Lou Hamilton

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Buster Keaton

“Before we set our hearts too much upon anything, let us examine how happy those are who already possess it.” ~ Francois de la Rochefoucauld

https://www.amnesty.org.uk

No more lies. No more blame. No more hate. No more fear.

  • We should never forget that whenever leaders seek to divide, demonise and repress people, there are always people willing to stand up and get in the way. Building a sustainable movement for change starts with this simple act of defiance. Never has it been so urgent to stand up and get in the way.” ~ Salil Shetty, Secretary General, Amnesty International 

The big question this year will be how far the world lets atrocities go before doing something about them. Our report calls on you, on all of us, around the world to stand up against the politics of fear, blame and hate. 2017 needs human rights heroes.” ~ Kerry Moscogiuri, Amnesty International UK • WATCH THIS POWERFUL VIDEO HERE

“You can fool all of the people some of the time, and you can fool some of the people all of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time.” ~ attributed to President Abraham Lincoln

PLEASE SUPPORT THE MOONDANCE FILM FESTIVAL!

Good movies always make the most immediate and lasting impact on audiences; more so than novels, lectures, conferences, sermons, seminars, or articles in newspapers and magazines, etc. Therefore, an investment in this important and meaningful film festival that has a mission and message will make more of a difference in the world, change ingrained perceptions, and encourage and inspire people to take action, more than any other media or efforts.

MEET THE 2017 MOONDANCE TEAM!

HOW WE PREVIEW & SELECT FILMS FOR THE MOONDANCE:

We judge films by considering all of these elements: Story, first, then directing, production values evident, acting, editing, film score, framing, focus, lighting, sound, costuming, locations, dialog, ambience, relatability (to the story, dialog & characters), wide interest, uniqueness, audience appeal, and appropriate running time for telling the story on film. We look for a unique story, well-told, visually.

THE MOONDANCE MISSION & GOALS:

The Moondance International Film Festival’s mission and goals include the following ideals: All people, regardless of gender, gender identification, ethnicity, racial heritage, disability, religion, location, age, sexual orientation and/or socio-economic status shall be treated equally and equitably, with respect, dignity and justice for all. 

By bringing people together online to view winning & selected films from around the world, we strive to provide an outlet and support for those talented people to express themselves on film, in written works and with music. We advocate for women and defend marginalized members of our society, preserving and protecting our natural environment, and promoting peaceful, non-violent alternatives to conflict resolutions. We endeavor to serve as a proactive model of peaceful demonstration, via our films, written works and music. 

PLEASE SUPPORT THE MOONDANCE FILM FESTIVAL!

Good movies always make the most immediate and lasting impact on audiences; more so than books, lectures, conferences, sermons, seminars, or articles in newspapers and magazines, etc. Therefore, an investment in this important and meaningful film festival that has a mission and message will make more of a difference in the world, change ingrained perceptions, and encourage and inspire people to take action, more than any other media or efforts.

With this internationally well-respected film festival, we aim to provide multiple viewpoints, address complex social issues, provide a forum for deliberation, and strengthen ties between a wide variety of local, regional, national and international audiences. Our mission is to present vibrant and memorable, accessible, relatable stories on film, which is an ideal means for communication across perceived boundaries of race, culture, place, and situation or circumstance, as well as age and gender.

Invest in the Moondance International Film Festival, become a festival co-producer, and see your financial support make a lasting difference!

WAYSEER MANIFESTO

WATCH THIS JOYFUL & INSPIRING VIDEO!

by Garret John

ATTENTION: All you rule-breakers, you misfits and troublemakers – all you free spirits and pioneers – all you visionaries and non-conformists… Everything that the establishment has told you is wrong with you – is actually what’s right with you.

You see things others don’t. You are hardwired to change the world. Unlike 9 out of 10 people – your mind is irrepressible – and this threatens authority. You were born to be a revolutionary. You can’t stand rules because in your heart you know there’s a better way. You have strengths dangerous to the establishment – and it wants them eliminated, So your whole life you’ve been told your strengths were weaknesses – Now I’m telling you otherwise. READ THE REST…

Gloria Steinem shared these words about Hedgebrook:

“It has always been crucial that Hedgebrook  put women’s voices — marginalized for so long and at such cost to the truth — in the center of the human narrative, but in this dangerous time, I think it may be literally lifesaving. We’ve been sitting around campfires for millennia, telling stories, so our minds are organized by narrative, not facts or statistics. Only stories help us to break through old roles that normalize domination, and Hedgebrook is a global campfire.” HEDGEBROOK INFO

Hedgebrook is on Whidbey Island, about thirty-five miles northwest of Seattle. Situated on 48-acres of forest and meadow facing Puget Sound, with a view of Mount Rainier, the retreat hosts writers from all over the world for residencies of two to six weeks, at no cost to the writer.

Six writers are in residence at a time, each housed in a handcrafted cottage. They spend their days in solitude – writing, reading, taking walks in the woods on the property or on nearby Double Bluff beach. In the evenings, they gather in the farmhouse kitchen to share a home-cooked gourmet meal, their work, their process and their stories. The Writers in Residence Program is Hedgebrook’s core program, supporting the fully-funded residencies of approximately 40 writers at the retreat each year.

Hedgebrook also offers a variety of ways for women writers to create and connect: Writers in Residence, Master Class Retreats, Vortext Weekend Workshop, One-Day Writing Salons & more!

THE SECRET TO OUR INTERNATIONAL SUCCESS:

The secret to the Moondance brand’s international success and longevity can be directly attributed to upholding our founding principles, goals, integrity, values and mission. We continually strive to inspire talented filmmakers, writers, composers and audiences, locally and globally. Maintaining the Moondance reputation for top-quality indie films, writing & music is always the festival’s first priority. Our valued sponsors, donors, supporters, friends of the Moondance, as well as our competition entrants, are an integral element of our long-term success.

INSIDER TIPS FOR FILMMAKERS:

When judges preview films for film festival competitions, or when distributors look at films they may decide to screen in theaters, or during Academy Award nomination season, or when a talent agent may decide to take you on as a client, or when a production company or film studio is watching your demo reel or trailer, and considering you to direct a film, the actors’ performances are one of the most important elements they look for in the film. You may have a unique story, the best cinematographer, incredible editing, memorable film score, interesting locations, fabulous action scenes, great dialog, and impressive production values, but…if any of the actors, not just the lead actors, fluff a scene, or are wooden, over-act, are amateurish, or are simply unremarkable in their roles, you’ve just lost all credibility as a film director, and you may not ever get a second chance.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The power of music in film! Music is the non-verbal, unspoken dialog in a film. A feature film needs at least 30 to 40 minutes of music, which is one of the most important elements in a successful film. Take a look at: 1. A film score can be artfully used to…2. The major categories of a film score are…3. Along with a good screenplay, and great dialog, music is what makes a film memorable! All of these vital crafts and elements contribute to making the “Dream Factory” world of the film believable & memorable to movie audiences! READ MORE:
