GC Indie Film and TV Network has nowconcluded five years and what a journey!
So far we have had some amazing guests and over the years these Indie Nightshave successfully built networks and connected many people in the filmindustry.
November 20th is a special night, as we are now going to be based in theParadise Room of the Arts Centre.
As we approach the Christmas season we have been allowed to extend the roomthrough to 11.30pm and we encourage everyone to get into a party mood!
We can enjoy a drink and order food snacks from the Arts Centre provided at aspecial price.
Having a bigger screen and stage will allow us to present the films andentertainment with couch style interviews and panelists.
GCIFTN is aiming to work on a myriad of wonderful projects in the New Year.
November 20will be a night with a musical feel, where we will introduce and premier themusic video clip “Free You Be You” the anti-bullying dance video,created by producer Shirley Pierce with David Mace-Kaff and Lauren-Ann Smith ofEvolve Film Productions,Directed by Tom McSweeny.
GCIFTN is very proud to have played a supportive role in the production of thisfilm. We played a very crucial part in the fund raising to make this “FreeYou Be You” a reality. You may have been there when a member raised herhand to donate muchneeded funds to Shirley.
Shirley’sinspiration to do the video was when she discovered that her daughter was thevictim of both real life and cyber bullies.
When other Gold Coast filmmakers learned of the project, they volunteered todonate their time and talent to also stand with bully survivors letting themknow how special they were and that they were not alone. On the night we willbe joined by Casting Director Tom McSweeny to present this video and describehow it all came together with the cast and crew.
Another amazing guest will be American composer,songwriter and musician Scott Lloyd Shelly who has been composing for 20years.His experience includes composing and producing songs and special material forParamount Pictures films like ‘Witness’and ‘Top Gun’, andDiscovery Channel fans might have noticed Scott’s “original music by”credit on numerous episodes of Steve Irwin’s ‘Crocodile Hunter’ shows. Scott most notablyproduces in-game music for developers including Accolade, Crystal Dynamics, EAKids (Electronic Arts), The Learning Company, Knowledge Adventure, HumongousEntertainment, 5th World Media, and recently for the indie game hit Terraria,which was ported to Xbox and Sony PlayStation last year, and Scott is currentlywriting new additional music for the PC update. In addition to musiccomposition, Scott also creates custom sound fx, casts and supervises dialoguefor games when required. After a trip to Australia in the late 70′s playingkeyboards for Boz Scaggs, Scott became a permanent resident of Australia in1999, and is currently quite happily residing on the fabulous Gold Coast withhis songwriter/publisher/music supervisor wife Brenda-Lee Heathcote-Shelly.
