Seed&Spark’s BRIGHT IDEAS Magazine is premiering a 50th anniversary remix of Godard’s ‘ALPHAVILLE‘ at the Slamdance Film Festival on January 26—and you get to write the dialogue!
In collaboration with Digital Bolex and Syrp, to celebrate the semicentennial of Jean-Luc Godard‘s lo-fi science fiction masterpiece, Alphaville, BRIGHT IDEAS set out to recreate—and reinterpret—one of the film’s iconic scenes. But they purposefully left out Lemmy Caution‘s subtitles. And you get to fill them in!
From January 7-19, visit brightideasmag.com/alphaville and use the form to submit your version of Lemmy Caution‘s dialogue! The grand prize winner will receive a writing credit on the Slamdance-premiering film, plus $500 toward your next Seed&Spark crowdfunding campaign!
About “ALPHAVILLE: A Remix”
Shot (in French) at the Ace Hotel Downtown LA, and starring Caitlin FitzGerald (Masters of Sex) and Brennan Kelleher (Starship Icarus), “ALPHAVILLE: A Remix,” is the first official film production of Seed&Spark’s BRIGHT IDEAS Magazine.
Photographed by cinematographer Eve M. Cohen on the model of 50-year-old lenses Raul Coutard used back in 1965, and lit by Hive Lighting, BRIGHT IDEAS’ “ALPHAVILLE: A Remix” was shot in period-precise black-and-white.
The opening credits of the film also feature dynamic behind-the-scenes motion time lapses photographed by Max Silverman using the Syrp Genie and Magic Carpet.
The final film, with the winning subtitles, will be available free online at brightideasmag.com/alphaville after its Slamdance premiere!
