Mash Up Competition

EAFA Mash Up 2015/16

Winning Entry - Over 18s

Lucy Cash - 'An Incomplete Catalogue'

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 - Under 18s

Signals Media - 'Green Screen Time Masheen'

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.

Following the roaring success of last year’s inaugural competition, we’re delighted to announce that we’re joining forces again with The Forum, Norwich, to bring this exciting competition to you this autumn. The brief will follow that of last year:

• Make a short film (between 1 and 5 minutes in duration)
• At least 50% of the total running time of the new production to consist of archive material (taken from the package of films we will make available for the purpose)

The competition package, and further details including information on prizes and screenings, will be made available here later this summer.


EAFA Mash Up 2014

Winning Entry - Yvonne Odell 'Mother's Bake Night'

Yvonne chose to combine excerpts from a 1950s drama ‘Mirage’ – about a man’s search for water - 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.
