East Anglian Film Archive (EAFA)

Mash-Up Filmmaking Competition

 

The East Anglian Film Archive (EAFA) Mash-up Filmmaking Competition takes place annually and invites filmmakers to create a new production choosing from a curated selection of archive film provided by EAFA.

 

The competition brief:

  • Make a short film between 1 and 5 minutes in duration.
  • At least 50% of the total duration of your film must consist of archive footage from the competition package supplied by EAFA.
  • Filmmakers can combine the EAFA archive footage with material you have shot yourself, or add effects and audio-visual material sourced (with the necessary permissions) from elsewhere.
  • Each year brings a new theme.

 

 

The prize:

The winning filmmaker in each category (‘Under 18s’ and ‘18 and Overs’) each win a £250 cash prize.  The two winning films are screened at the Norwich Film Festival .  The winning films are also added to EAFA’s collections, and preserved for posterity.


 

***The 2021 filmmaking competition will launch in the Springtime.***

In the meantime, all previous winning and runner-up films can be viewed below.

EAFA Mash-Up 2015-16 Winners

 

Winning Entry in the '18 and Over' category

'An Incomplete Catalogue' by Lucy Cash

 

 
A monocle-wearing livestock fancier imagines a winning gamble; young Dora’s mind wanders far from the job in hand at the laundry workhouse, and as the sails turn on his windmill, stoic Mr MacFarlane muses on the weather.  With narration through title cards, the subtle addition of sound effects, and the perfectly knitting together of once seemingly disparate scenes, Lucy Cash recreates the day dreams of a band of colourful characters to produce the winning entry in the Over 18s category, “An Incomplete Catalogue … of escaped thoughts”.
 

 

Winning Entry in the 'Under 18' category

'Green Screen Time Masheen' by Signals Media

 

 

A group of teenagers worked with Signals Media Arts Centre to produce the winning film in the Under 18s category.  “Green Screen Time Masheen” is just that!  With tongue-in-cheek, the filmmakers travel back in time with the use of modern green screen digital technology.  Whether to mischievously swipe a pint of beer from a thirsty man, or spy on a Broads twitcher, the filmmakers are transported to the scenarios occupied in the archive footage, providing a quirky and tech-savvy winning film.

EAFA Mash-Up 2014 Winner

'Mother's Bake Night' by Yvonne Odell

 

 

Yvonne chose to combine excerpts from the 1950s short drama ‘Mirage’ – about a man’s knightmarish mission to quench his thirst - with audio visual material she created herself. The sound, a clash of notes, is influenced by the simple electronic suspense soundtracks of 70s horror movies.
