As ACMI’s youth program, Intermix, heads into its third official year, we thought it would be a great time to have a look back at some of the program highlights from the last 12 months.
Intermix is an exciting program of screenings, artist talks, workshops, live performances and more presented free to young people aged between 15 and 20. For the past two years Intermix has been proudly supported by the Ian Potter Foundation, and we are very excited to now have the strong support of Naomi Milgrom AO, ensuring the continued growth and success of the program for the next few years.
In the video below, we have captured some highlights from the Intermix creative workshops presented by contemporary artists and film makers.
Looking for more information? Here’s a rundown on the events featured in the video.
Pixelated Pop was a three day workshop, where young people produced augmented 3D films using a technique that combined 3D scanning and traditional filmmaking techniques.
Let There be Light
Let There be Light, presented by two of Melbourne’s best cinematographers Ryan Alexander-Lloyd and Giovani Lorusso, was a hands on exploration of the equipment and techniques behind cinematic lighting.
Warped Perspectives, presented by media artist Zeal, was a workshop dedicated to projection mapping, a technique where video content is mapped to 3D objects in the real world via a combination of traditional animation techniques and powerful contemporary software.
Intermix had the opportunity to team up with Pause Festival for a program that tasked young people with capturing the digital practices that characterised Pause Festival. The Festival Correspondent program is soon to be reignited for Melbourne Music Week.
For Music Television, we collaborated with the City of Melbourne’s Signal art studio, where a group of 20 young people designed and shot a video clip for local band Pikelet over a weekend. Here is what Chapter Music’s Guy Blackman thought of the clip.
“We loved what the Signal/ACMI MTV workshop kids did (with help from Isobel Knowles) for Pikelet’s song Combo. It was bright, inventive, engaging and a lot of fun.”
Intermix has many more exciting opportunities planned for the rest of the year, including collaborations with Melbourne Music Week and a workshop dedicated to the Oculus Rift virtual reality platform.
