After its successful debut earlier this year, Loading Docs gets set to go again and has opened its call for submissions for its 2015 round of three-minute documentary shorts.
The doors are open until 8 December, with a timetable in place leading to the 10 films supported making their collective premiere in July next year.
In cash terms Loading Docs offers $2,000, plus up to a further $2,000 of funding to match cash generated via a crowd-funding campaign. In kind, Toybox and Sale Street Studios will provide each title with a colour grade and sound-mix.
The scheme doesn’t allow newbies to make their mark, with one of the application criteria being that filmmakers must have “a proven track record in screen production”.
There’s also a commitment to diversity with the statement: We will look for film subjects and styles that will appeal to a range of different audiences, and will reflect a diversity of cultures, ages, regions and perspectives.
As they did for the inaugural Loading Docs outing, Julia Parnell and Anna Jackson will EP for Parnell’s Notable Pictures.
