“HAVEN’T YOU EVER WANTED TO PUT YOUR FOOT THROUGH YOUR TELEVISION?” – Media Burn, Ant Farm
Ever wanted to swede? In this Channels Festival two-hour sweding workshop you will take an iconic scene from a film or video work and recreate it in wildly innovative ways. Tape Projects artists Cait Foran and Jessie Scott and Channels Festival co-director and artist Rachel Feery will guide you through the basics of sweding using simple props, in-camera editing and mad skills. Sweded videos will be screened at the Channels Closing Night Party. Please bring your own camera (phones count!).
“How to make a movie with yourself, for yourself; it doesn’t have to be good it’s not a competition. It’s for people to make the movie and watch it. You just need to reflect who you are.” – Michel Gondry, How To Swede
Perfect for budding artists and filmmakers whatever age or experience level. Come ready to collaborate, share ideas and flex your creative brain cells.
Video is all around us. The ultimate mirror-medium of our times. Channels: The Australian Video Art Festival is a new international biennial festival based in Melbourne. Taking place 18–21 September 2013, the Festival showcases contemporary video art practice across its many, mutant forms.
–Jack Black, How To Swede
“You wanna know what Sweding is? You take what you like and mix it with some other things you like and make a new thing; your thing. It’s putting you into the thing you like.”
