Real Film Festival 2015
The Real Film Festival is a three-day art, community and
industry event showcasing films based on real stories, including documentaries,
features and shorts. This year, the dates are set for November 27 ~ 29, across a number of venues throughout Newcastle.
Each year the Festival runs industry development workshops,
which are an informative experience for emerging filmmakers, established
filmmakers, and anyone with an interest in how the film industry works. This
year will cover topics such as Sound Design, Game Development, Editing, Special
Effects Makeup, Producing, Acting for Screen and many more. Presenters include
industry professionals such as Jeff Julian, who will be running the Conceptualisation
workshop, showing attendees how to get their film out of their head and on to
the screen; and Jason van Genderen, presenting the Portable Filmmaking workshop,
which removes the idea of large crews and studios and strips filmmaking back to
its core concepts: a camera and a vision.
The festival program includes a variety of entertainment
including the Opening Night Gala held at Tower Cinemas with a party to follow
at Custom’s House in Newcastle. The festival will also deliver an Open Air
Cinema in Civic Park, film screenings at Tower Cinema and short film screenings
at Newcastle Museum.

The awe-inspiring aerial shots of the Stockton dunes were captured on Daniel Johns’ latest video clip using camera drones.
Aerial Love is the first release from Johns’ upcoming four-song EP, which is set to debut on 13th March. The sensual electro marks a shift away from his grungy Silverchair days, and while he may be alienating some of his rock fans with the new direction, it’s a very impressive tune and clip.
Johns opened-up on the video shoot. "The dunes actually looked spectacular but it was all pretty intense. The whole idea was to capture big aerial perspectives by using drone cameras that can fly by remote control. The winds were too strong in the first 24 hours though so they couldn't film anything. We finally started shooting on the second day but it was still 35 degrees in the shade and there were lots of sandstorms. It was like we were filming one of those desert scenes from Star Wars! I felt like I needed a droid."
