Film Commission: Open to all

 ~Flow examines the relationship between technology and natural energy, using tangible visual and audible techniques for communicating the behaviour of a tidal river. 

We are inviting proposals from film-makers to work with an engineer from Buro Happold, ~Flow's engineers, over the summer to create a new film about ~Flow, focussing on these engineering aspects of the project.

We are particularly interested in proposals that focus on the role of engineering in the historical development of the Newcastle and Gateshead Quayside. A regional context which offers an excellent backdrop for the commission, a symbiotic relationship between the River Tyne and local industry, each having a huge impact on the other at different times in recent history.

There is only one commission available, with a budget of £2000. 

Applicants should submit a statement detailing their interest in the project and relevant skills and experience (500 words max) including links to at least 2 previous works, a full C.V. and an estimated budget with approximate figures for how this budget would be spent. 

The deadline for proposals is 18 June, please send complete proposals to
The film must be completed for public presentation in August. 

If you have any queries relating to this commission, please contact Nicola Singh at or on 07973982007.
