The second series of Art Bites has been released on ABC iview today. Four teams of emerging filmmakers, from around Australia, each created a bite-sized arts documentary series. Felix Media's Bridget Ikin mentored the teams, thanks to the support of the Screen Australia Enterprise program. The four series are:
Mirror (QLD) - producer: Kate Paul & director Brodie Poole
Six Australian artists embark on a nostalgic journey back to a place of their past to confront memories that will inspire a self-portrait work.
Unboxed (SA) – producers Kirsty Stark and Rebecca Elliott & director Sam Matthews
Filmmaker Sam Matthews sets out to meet other gender-diverse Australian artists, challenging each of them to create a new artwork based on the theme “Unboxed”.
Carla and Lisa's Countdown (NSW) – producer Barry Gamba & director Ludwig El Haddad
Twins Carla and Lisa Wherby, Auburn-based artists are besotted fans and collectors of Australian popular art and culture. Invited to enter the National Self-Portrait Prize, this series captures them meeting their art heroes.
On the cusp of his 28th birthday, Anthony goes to America to learn from the great song spammer Matt Farley. Can he write and record 100 songs in 10 days?
Art Bites is a joint ABC ARTS and Screen Australia initiative.
