North Devon documentary maker Martin Kemp has won the very first 2018 ARRI Doc Challenge film competition for his three minute film, Where the Land Falls. The film sees Ed Strawbridge, a third generation dairy farmer at Down Farm in North Devon, looking at photographs of his family by James Ravilious. Ed reflects on how farming life has changed during his lifetime.
As a supporter of North Devon Moving Image (NDMI) and former film judge himself (for our Wild Shorts competition) we are thrilled that Martin is sharing his film with us for the NDMI collection.
The theme for the inaugural ARRI Doc Challenge was “Millennial”. As the winner of the competition, Martin received a cash prize of £3,000. “For me, having the chance to play with the ARRI Amira for three days was an unmissable opportunity. It’s a wonderful camera and I very quickly fell in love with it. The challenge to shoot and edit a film in just three days is certainly tough but it’s a great discipline. Plus you have the privilege of being able to make the piece you want to make without commissioning editors!” said Martin.
Thank you Martin and well done. A great film and doing the job that Ravilious did with his engaging photographs - preserving North Devon stories on film.
Following on from some positive feedback and great press coverage of our Clovelly Donkeys pilot film we are full steam ahead with plans for community workshops, film making and education for 2014 and beyond.
We have plenty more up our sleeve too including the all important funding bids to bring these exciting projects to fruition.
One area we are keen to get going as soon as possible is delivering some documentary film making education in North Devon. We are currently looking for partners who can help us deliver film making workshops for children and adults in community or education settings. If you are interested in this please do get in touch.
