Malaysia: Script to Screen Film Workshop
Masterclass with Jason van Genderen, WORQ@Subang
No script, storyboard or crew. No exposure of focus controls. A resolution of 640 x 480 pixels and a total memory of just 160MB. That was Jason’s unexpected entry into the global filmmaking stage back in 2008.
‘Mankind is No Island’ went on to win numerous prestigious accolades at film festivals around Movement. His aptly named ‘pocket studio’ is based on the Central Coast of NSW, Australia. He’s currently completing his first feature-length documentary entirely filmed on iPhone using anamorphic lensing. theglobe, and was one of the very first exemplar films to champion a whole new emerging medium of smartphone cinematography. With screenings and awards from Tropfest NY, Aspen Shortsfest, Palm Springs, San Francisco Short Film Festival, Edinburgh International Film Festival right through to Sundance London, Jason’s made mobile stories that matter, becoming an unexpected voice for marginalised or emerging storytellers.
It’s the very reason he proudly labels himself a Filmbreaker. An equally passionate educator, Jason’s talks have inspired audiences from TEDx Newy to the Aspen Ideas Festival; from countless television show appearances to keynote addresses at film schools and festivals. His masterclass workshops continue to inspire both beginners and seasoned professionals alike. Jason has also consulted and collaborated with some of the world’s largest imaging brands, from Sony and Nokia to Nikon and currently Apple Australia.
This year he also commenced an on-air role presenting guest segments on Channel 7’s ‘Get Arty’ children show, and has taken on a consultancy role to the same network advising on the role of iPhoneography in broadcast production environments.
Jason is a father of three children and founder of content creation studio Treehouse Creative, the Pocket Film Academy and TheFilmbreaker.
