Call for Work: Oral Action at Studio 27
Studio 27, a San Francisco exhibition space that showcases experimental film and media, is looking for short videos, films, and animations for our next screening, scheduled for late February. This show will focus on all things oral! Are you orally active? Do you know someone who is?
Possible themes might include: orality/literacy, speaking/singing, the spoken/the written, consumption/expulsion, the mouth as a liminal zone between outside and inside, aural/oral, the relation of the mouth to other parts of body, the multiple functions of the mouth (i.e. eating, communication, expressive performance, erogenous zone of pleasure, etc.), fetishes and fantasies, oral antics, work that deals with the oral phase of a child’s psycho-sexual development, and work in or out of the realm of the mouth that is real or imaginary, including but not limited to simple moments or complex actions. Studio 27 is eager to show art that points to the utopian potential of becoming orally active, and works which expand understanding about communication and connectivity.
We are requesting work less than 30 minutes in length on playable DVDs (all region), MiniDVs (NTSC), or data DVDs (as a Quicktime movie file, especially for digital animations).
Submission Deadline (received by): February 1, 2007
Include with your submission a brief written description of the work, and a short filmmaker bio. Also include a SASE if you would like your materials returned to you (only U.S. mail will be returned).
