Just one week to go until submissions close!

Just one week to go until DepicT! ’14 submissions close! We’ve got some advice for your last tweaks from Ollie Murray, whose amusing short film Treasure is a real gem.

Here are his top tips for DepicT! entrants:

1) Don’t shoot your film until you know that the script is as tight as it can possibly be. Making films is expensive and time consuming but writing costs close to nothing so map out your films in your head and on paper before moving forward and spending money. Once you’ve shot your film and you are in the edit don’t stop working on your film until it’s absolutely the very best it can be.

2) Seek out great collaborators and don’t try to do too much yourself. A DOP with a fresh pair of eyes or an editor with a new approach to a scene will make the film much better.

3) Don’t worry too much about what other people are doing around you. Find something that interests you and tell that story the way you want to tell it. When I started making films I think I worried too much about making work that I thought other people wanted to see.

Good luck! Enter your shorts on www.depict.org before Mon 7 July – yes – just seven days!
