Raw Shorts: The Expendables? - July 26, 2014

This month Raw Shorts looks at the team you need to get your film  rolling. A panel discussion with professionals and experts from across the production industry will discuss what qualities are essential when putting a team together, and what equipment you need for that crew to handle.

This will be followed by a choice of either: a masterclass in casting from the perspectives of a casting director, a producer and a director; or, if you can’t tell a fish-eye lens from a telescopic, then join our practical workshop on filmmaking kit, including cameras, lenses, sound recording devices, plus equipment you can make yourself for next to nothing (DIY steadicams, tracks and dollies).

At the end of the day there’ll be a chance to network with other young filmmakers and industry professionals.

London Game Space Pecha Kucha - May 29, 2014

A Pecha Kucha talk on the gradual adoption of presentation and collaborative practices from other cultural forms by games, and what that might mean for the future.

A show and tell salon on systems - January 26, 2014

Coney, curated by Tassos Stevens, hosted by Tom Frankland

A collection of speakers from diverse backgrounds each present a short, informal show and tell on a question which inspires them. Following the success of last year’s salons on activism and systems, Coney’s Show & Tell returns to pose some interesting questions on real world systems and how we might, possibly, change them. Expect some friendly provocation and discussion over drinks.

Speakers include Mel Evans of Liberate Tate and Platform; Annette Mees, co-director of Coney; game designer Paul Callaghan and more tbc.

Playing Systems Workshop - January 19, 2014

Join Coney to discover how the tools of game design can be applied to the real world. We’ll see if we can recognise how everyday systems around us play as games, then how we might hack and rewire them to play better. It’s not about gamification but perhaps its very opposite.

The workshop, facilitated by Paul Callaghan and Tassos Stevens, is an exploration of practice, with the aim of creating a toolbox and guidance that can be documented and shared later. It’s open to anyone but places are limited; please send an expression of interest to playingsystems@coneyhq.org.
