This is part of the DIY Film School. South Texas Underground Film’s Challenges are to educate and refresh filmmakers on film history and technique.
MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The Russian Winter Challenge is for the filmmaker to use a hands on approach by using editing techniques/theories, established by Sergei Eisenstein in the early1900′s, called Soviet Montage.
ABOUT THE RUSSIAN WINTER CHALLENGE
South Texas Underground Film is seeking out films/media that follow any of the following editing techniques the Russian filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein helped to establish:
- Each type of technique is built on upon the one previous, therefore more complex than the last.
- For more detailed information on each technique please go to Woody Lindsey’s page.
- We want silent films or media. Silent Films had music, so your film/media can have music if you wish.
