PicSeeder competition fails to germinate

1 July 2013 10:56 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

The picSeeder concept seemed easy to grasp: a global, online pitching competition designed to enable aspiring filmmakers to fund short films.

Alas, the execution proved challenging and the number of entries received by the June 30 deadline- 32- is way below the volume expected by the organisers, filmmaker Bill Bennett and his wife, producer Jennifer Cluff.

Contestants were invited to submit a 1-minute pitch video. Members of the site (www.picseeder.com) get to vote on their favourite pitch until July 8. Those who send in the 12 most popular pitches will be asked to provide a 3-minute video.

The winner will be determined by an international jury comprising Us sales agent Robbie Little, French financier/producer Jean-Charles Levy, Stephen Gates, New York-based head of the literary department at talent management company Evolution Entertainment, actress Michelle Ang and Indian producer Udayan Baijal.

At the outset the organisers said the cash prize, funded from the $28 entry fee, »

"Grey's Anatomy" recap: "Do You Believe in Magic" (9.22)

3 May 2013 3:53 PM, PDT | AfterEllen.com | See recent AfterEllen.com news »

Tags: televisiontelevision recapsGrey's AnatomyIMDbMichelle Ang

In the latest installment of Grey’s Anatomy, a magic trick goes terribly wrong, Bailey is M.I.A. and there are lesbians popping up left and right.  (This was a good one.)

In the show’s opening scene a magician's assistant is being taken out of an ambulance and raced into the hospital. The woman’s magician husband used an actual chainsaw to saw her in half. During the trick the trap door got stuck and because the chainsaw was so loud the magician couldn’t hear his wife’s pleads for help. Miraculously the woman survives, but not without a lot of drama first. Long story short, the other magician’s assistant (played by Underemployed's Michelle Ang) reveals that she is having an affair with the injured wife. The husband is shockingly understanding and bows out to allow the women to be together. »

Michelle Ang 'Underemployed' Q&A: 'I've had my share of crappy jobs'

3 April 2013 6:50 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Michelle Ang is one of the stars of MTV's latest teen drama series Underemployed - a show that takes a light and comedic look at life for a group of struggling graduates.

Digital Spy caught up with the New Zealand-born actress to chat about the show, some of her own bad jobs and her Game of Thrones ambitions.

For people who haven't seen the show yet in the UK, how would you describe Underemployed?

"Well it's a comical show, which talks about the new millennium, dealing with an age old trouble - this idea of being a kid with big dreams and then actually stepping into the adult world and realising those dreams and all those challenges which come with adult life like paying your own rent and negotiating your own way with a job.

"Our characters are also going through the transitions in today's slightly crappy economy. I think our show is quite unique. »

Bill Bennett's picSeeder short film comp launches

6 February 2013 8:20 PM, PST | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Australian filmmaker Bill Bennett has launched an online short film competition offering up to $50,000 prize money.

picSeeder has attracted a respected international panel of judges comprised of French financier and producer Jean Charles Levy, Us sales agent Robbie Little, Us manager Stephen Gates, Indian producer/assistant director Udayan Baijal, and actor Michelle Ang.

Public funding for short films has fallen in recent years as the focus has shifted to supporting features, TV, and digital media although crowdfunding and lower digital production costs has helped offset the decline.

Bennett said he hopes the picSeeder competition will present an alternative source of financing, "particularly for young filmmakers so they don't have to go cap in hand to the funding bodies."

In December, 2012, Screen Australia said it had spent its entire $42 million drama production budget in just six months although earlier this month it announced $40,000 in support of short musical comedy Emo (The »
