我們有電子報囉!和我們保持聯絡吧 :D

其實八場未來影展 未來短片節 下來, 我們發現最大的問題是我們能夠真的讓大家都知道我們又有活動了,我們什麼時候有下一場影展。大部分我們都把訊息貼在我們的 Facebook 粉絲頁,以前我們都是這樣做的,但是我們也有發現粉絲頁並不是那麼可靠的,很多時候朋友們會告訴我們他們並沒有看到我們的貼文,當然更不會知道我們又有活動了。

另一方面呢,我們部落格的讀者並不多,真的會來我們部落格的朋友們則又需要被提醒[對吼 該看看FUTURE SHORTS] 的部落格了,畢竟大家的生活都是很忙碌的。

這樣我們該怎麼樣傳達這些活動訊息給我們真正的讀者觀眾們呢?

後來我們討論的結果是—-何不把我們的訊息直接傳給我們的粉絲呢?如果有人告訴我們 [我希望收到你們以後的活動訊息] 那麼我們就可以真正讓他們收到我們的新訊息了! 因此,也許電子報是一個好辦法(縱使並不是完美的解決辦法 但可行阿)

於是我們有了電子報!下面有註冊的說明,我們只有在有新消息的時候才會發信給大家,也借此觀察電子報是不是適合我們的觀眾們,當然,我們會繼續做調整。非常感謝你一直看到這一行字,就讓我們保持聯絡吧  :)

We have a newsletter: don’t ever miss an event

The biggest problem we have found during the last 8 events we hosted is how to reliably let people know that we have a screening. Most of our communication was done through our Facebook Page, but over time that became more and more unreliable. Fewer people can see our posts, many never even get a notice that we have an event going on, and generally cannot get the same exposure as we used to. This is a general change in Facebook’s behaviour and troubles every other organizer as well.

On the other hand, not that many people come to our blog, and those who come would need to remember to check the page regularly to see if we have announced any new events?

Much better if we can go to our fans directly – if someone tells us that “yeah, I want to hear when you have the next screening!”, then we should be able to get in touch with them. For this, a newsletter is probably the best (even if not perfect) way.

So now we have a newsletter. Here’s the sign-up form below. We’ll send out emails only to keep people informed, and see whether it enables the creation a more satisfied community. :)

Let’s keep in touch!

2013/14 冬季 未來影片節來囉!

我們的粉絲一定有發現我們並沒有舉行去年底的秋季影展(是的,9/10/11 稱之為秋季)這幾天這麼冷,也是我們醞釀出冬季影展的時刻囉 :) 2013/14 的冬季場非常令人期待,2/22,在這麼濕冷的天,就跟好友們窩在一起看電影吧 。

這次的場地還是老地方, Insomnia Cafe (師大 睡不著 咖啡廳), 一個非常有文藝氣息,放鬆的好地方。最多可以容納40-45個人(我們的上一場就幾乎坐滿)這次我們提早了許多時間準備,就是希望給大家一個更好的體驗,更順的流程,設備也更乖更聽話(哈哈)

活動頁面請看我們的 Facebook  我們將在這個頁面通知大家確切的時間,也有地點資訊可以參考。
(一直有Follow我們的好朋友們或許會發現,這是我第一次嘗試翻譯中文片名。其實是因為我覺得以往雖然直接用英文名字保持原汁原味,卻讓不太懂片名的朋友們無法體會片名跟短片之間強烈的關係,還望大家滿意囉)

Since we have missed the Autumn season, it’s time to catch up with the regular screenings. We are preparing in Taipei for the 2013/14 Winter. It’s been a cold & wet winter here so far, will be looking forward to some cozy movie night with friends.

We are holding the event at the same place we’ve always been, Insomnia Cafe, it’s a small but very friendly location. Can seat about 40-45 people if we really try (and in the last few seasons we did have full house). Hope to have better subtitling, want to prepare the computer better, and hope to try a few different things to make the organization smoother.

The event is on February 22, Saturday, afternoon. The time is to-be-announced. Can see the event page on Facebook.

2013 台北夏季場 粉絲觀後感-{ The Pirate of Love }

有在Follow我們的部落格會發現,未來短片 x 台北 不定時會邀請喜歡我們的粉絲寫一些觀後感

這次邀請 紅球,主要是她非常融入活動,找了很多資料和大家分享,

看到觀眾們能夠一起討論,分享心得,是讓我們很開心的事情 :)

 

2013 未來短片影展 / 台北夏季場 粉絲觀後感– (紅球){ The Pirate of Love }

圖片

來說說這次我最喜歡的一部短片:The Pirate of Love。在說這部片之前先聲明The Runaway的確真的很棒,因為太棒了所以我就不多說它有多好多好,讓別人去評論他吧,我來介紹The Pirate of Love這部對於台灣觀眾看似有點莫名其妙的動畫紀錄片。

 初次觀賞時被那如幻覺般流動的螢光色手繪動畫吸引,但當下沒有很確切抓住本片想表達的思想,回到家上網調查後,發現The Pirate of Love原來只是單純描述幾位歌迷對於冰島流浪歌手Daniel C.的歌的一些臆測,因為沒有人知道這位歌聲有些滄桑的真實身分為何,他們猜測他可能古怪而孤寂還愛上名叫Sherry的十三歲黑人女孩,獨自開著卡車在公路上奔馳,還作了這張The Pirate of Love的專輯來歌詠愛情等等,所以影像隨著歌詞呈現許多神秘而空靈的風格,導致不知這位歌手故事的觀眾不好理解內容實屬可惜,但在知道故事背景的情況下,卻是可以再三回味的好短片。

 

 而在影片完成且在影展撥出後,影片製作人也被Daniel C.本人連繫上了,據說歌手已經跟Sherry修成正果結婚,且很開心自己的歌曲能給世人許多想像,而他本人已不再像那首Lonely Life裡高歌”Anybody hear my cry~?”啦。多麼美好的人生呢!

 

   影片的魔力就是用影像與聲音將平凡的現實氛圍瞬間變化成有點魔幻的氣味,而且可以多人共享。這次是我第二次參加FutureShorts,與很多認識的與陌生的朋友擠在地下室共同品嘗這股脫離現實的美好,真好。
