影展澳門人才

Jorge Cordeiro dos Santos

It was with enthusiasm that the IFFAM team welcomed the ideas that I have been developing with director Maxim Bessmertny, thus supporting our arduous attempt to write and produce feature films. Especially “Foreign Cop”, which the team selected to take to the Torino Film Lab in 2019. In Torino, we had a great opportunity to mature our intentions, by receiving feedback and notes from experienced professionals, a valuable assist that helped us detect the weaknesses and strengths of our plot, as well as have a broader view of the way the film industry operates. Besides the hard work, it was amazing to spend time with such a diversified group of filmmakers from Macau in Italy, exchanging ideas regarding film and art with other people from all over the globe. Later, in 2019 as work went on, we had the chance to pitch our project in the IFFAM public pitching session, and more recently in the Cannes Marché du Film. The contacts we established have shown to be essential to take a step further in the quality of our local productions, and in getting our films financed. I hope we continue to work closely with IFFAM, and together help establish the Macau Film Industry.

TFL was a memorable opportunity given by the IFFAM. The programme really pushed us to deliver and work very hard according to the guide set by our experience mentor. The best part of the programme is the connection we get from film makers from around the world and learn from their projects. On top of that, we have got the opportunity to prepare our pitch and got to showcase our talent to these people. The most fruitful aspect of the programme is of course the opportunity to learn from experienced practitioners from the international film industry and have them acting as our mentor throughout the programme. Being part of this prestigious TFL programme also gave us good track-record as we have been selected to participate in this programme.

這是我第一次入選與參加 IFFAM 合作的「TFL NEXT Feature Film」工作坊,為期一個月工作坊,以修改學員的故事大綱為目的。

對於像我這種,沒受過傳統電影學院訓練的新導演,跟著世界各地的導師和同學一起討論,也有助更了解自己正在撰寫的故事。

而十分國際化的「TFL NEXT Feature Film」工作坊,也讓我重新感受到,世界各國的創作人是如何看待來自澳門的故事。
作為土生土長的創作人,我們又能如何滿足國際上對澳門電影的期望,同時又找到切合本地文化和感覺的影像特色,這或許是 IFFAM 選出我們參加如此深具國際野活動的原因。

借此感謝我在「TFL NEXT Feature Film」工作坊的導師 Eilon Ratzkovsky,以及 IFFAM 的總監Mike Goodridge 一直對澳門新導演的關注。

2019年6月及11月,有幸入選為全澳三個項目之一,赴意大利都靈進行電影項目培訓計劃。「都靈電影項目培訓計劃」歷史悠久,在歐洲甚至全世界響具盛名,於限定期間進行不同類型的培訓,是次參與的計劃是針對編劇及監製範疇的環節,與各地的電影業人士進行交流,並跟從導師學習專業的技巧,於6月份的第一階段學習編劇、11月份的第二階段學習監製技巧及市場營銷。在這兩個不同季節的學習期間,處於異國之下很容易便投入歐洲的藝術文化中,並且在過程中更為專注,完全感受到創作自由之美,更重要是與世界各地人士的交流經驗實在難能可貴。在第一階段,導師結合很多實用的技巧,以及分享編劇的模式,透過不同問題、作業,最後公開演說自己的作品,同時得到知名電影製作人的意見,令自己的劇本更上一層樓。在第二階段,主要分享在作為監製、製片方面的經驗,並參與「都靈國際電影節(TIFF)」不同的講座、電影及分享,最深劇是大會安排了交流晚宴,與歐洲知名的電影公司代表接觸,在導師帶領下發表自己的項目,並交換了聯絡方式,跟進自己項目未來的發展。

In 2019, I had the pleasure of participating in the Script and Creative Production Workshop and Training organised by MFTPA and the Torino Film Lab. A varied group of creatives and filmmakers from Macau, Hong Kong and Taiwan departed from Hong Kong Airport together to attend the Torino Film Lab, Italy in two separate workshops in June and November 2019.

I was developing a 1980s thriller screenplay entitled ‘Mendonza’, a story about a detective who is hired to investigate a murder and robbery at one of the casinos in Macau. The project needed a strong script and I invited Jorge Cordeiro dos Santos to join me on this trip as we had both been working on a short film together.

Having developed most of my screenplays under an attic at home, it was a pleasure to be travelling to Europe where one could get fresh ideas and input in intensive classes between delightful Italian meals. We were able to work fiercely on assignments given to us by our mentor Eilon Ratzkovsky, himself a veteran producer.

A great part of this programme was the opportunity I feared at first – pitching your ideas in front of the other thirty or so workshop participants. I always thought it was not the job of the filmmaker to pitch his ideas and would think a guardian angel would do it for me. Luckily, this lab let me confront this fear of voicing out my own ideas and eventually the entire Macau group became much more confident. This was followed by observing the Torino Film Lab final presentations in November which definitely gave me insight and rehearsal ideas for our own presentations at the IFFAM Market that same December.

第一屆參與影展是因為自己的首部劇《骨妹》在影展首映,當時的心情是相當緊張的,除了自己的第一個小孩要面世,也因為對這個影展不熟悉,所以感到害怕。記得當時還有另一個海外的影展邀約做首映,但因為希望第一部電影的首映能在自己的家鄉舉行,加上又是第一屆的澳門影展,覺得別具意義,所以最後還是決定在澳門作全球首映。老實說第一屆的時候有太多事情都很新鮮,所以不知不覺的就在興奮中就度過了。在影展裡,《骨妹》也受到很多媒體的關注,為電影和投資都打了一支強心針。而且後續其實影展還是有持續關注《骨妹》,也把電影推薦給世界各地不同的國際影展,讓《骨妹》有一個更好的平台面對國際觀眾

第二屆影展的時候,換成是一個觀眾的身份,很多事情就能看得更清晰。當然,在澳門的觀影人口不多,這對影展來說確實是一個硬傷。看到很多好的作品但觀眾廖廖,無論對電影的創作者,或是對影展本身都不是一件好事。但觀眾是需要很長時間培養的,特別是對於這種非商業類型的影展電影,單靠一兩年的時間,實在很難瞬間辦到

第三屆影展,我轉換了一個身份參與,去了參加影展中的項目市場。這個項目市場,會選世界各地十幾個還沒開展的電影項目,讓大家聚在一起進行介紹會,也邀請了國際的電影策展人及投資人來聽電影項目的介紹,目的是希望促成電影項目能夠獲得投資並開展。這個項目市場,是從第二屆開始就有澳門項目的加入,影展方面也是希望能有更多的澳門電影人能參與其中。過程當中,確實是獲益良多,影展有專門的老師來指導我們講解項目的技巧,而且因為其他項目都是來自世界各地,可以跟其他組別的導演和電影人有深入交流,了解到國際市場上的其他可能性。更重要當然是遇到一些有潛力的投資者,讓電影項目有展開的可能

到了第四屆國際影展,這次又是一個新的身份。是以監製的角色帶著兩部澳門電影《伊娜:初生之犢》和《澳門之年》回到影展。監製對我來說是個新嘗試,當導演的時候,總是被照顧得很好,這次當監製有很多不足的地方,但出發點還是希望導演們能只專注在創作的部份,其他非關創作的事情能盡量幫導演們分擔。兩部電影都在影展首映,不是一件簡單的事情,幸運的今年有澳門的特別單元,影片也順利入選,讓澳門的導演和演員們,有一個國際的平台作首映。作為導演的時候,可能也沒有特別思考很多很續的事情,但轉換了一個新份,反而更有動力希望這兩部影片都能走得更遠,有更好的發展。這次影展裡,也遇到很多不同地方的電影人,對這兩部電影都給予了不同的意見,希望在獲得這些意見後,我們可以帶著澳門的電影,走到更多不同的地方,讓更多的人知道澳門也是有電影的,而我們也在一步一步的努力當中
