Sponsor Carly Anne Kenneally’s involvement in the UnionDocs Collaborative Studio.

From Carly:
In just 7 weeks I’ll be jet setting to NY as one of the UnionDocs CoLab Fellowship students for 10 months. Together with 6 Americans and 6 internationals (1 being me) we will be working with some of documentaries most influential radio and video artists in order to create our own collaborative project.
To say I’m excited is an understatement!! I’ve been working my tooshy off to ensure my stability whilst studying but it’s just not enough – is it ever? Your donation will go towards the seminars, workshops and bodegas that Union Docs hold to expand our documentary making knowledge and essentially the project we are working on together. My previous stories have included Not on my Turf, Australian Journey and The Imaki project, and more photography and film which you can find on my website carly-anne.com
Your support means so much. If you choose to assist in my journey as a documentary maker have a look at rewards you will receive.

About CoLABThe UnionDocs Collaborative Studio (CoLAB) is a 10 month program for a select group of media artists from the US and abroad. Based in one of NYC’s most exciting neighborhoods, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, CoLAB offers a platform for exploring contemporary approaches to the documentary arts and a process for developing an innovative collaborative project. The program consists of weekly production meetings, seminars, screenings and other public programs, along with regular masterclasses and critiques with visiting artists.

In a recent article in The New York Times, film scholar Scott MacDonald, remarked, “UnionDocs has a healthy sense that the older definitions of what constitutes ‘experimental’ cinema and what constitutes ‘documentary’ are up for grabs.” Similarly, the UnionDocs Collaborative Studio represents a new and alternative fellowship model, offering residency and visa support for six participants coming from abroad and an equal number of spots for local, non-resident participants. It is designed to be affordable and, although participants are asked to make CoLAB their primary creative focus, the schedule does accommodate full-time or freelance work. Rather than applying with a project proposal or rough cut, all participants are selected on the basis of previous work and enter the program at square one, open to discovery and fresh connections.

UnionDocs is not simply the host for this activity, it takes an active role producing the collection of short documentary works that comprise the collaborative project. The theme or focus for the year is chosen by the Artistic Director, and resources and research to support this direction are gathered. The CoLAB Director leads the group through an incremental process where new ideas and new partnerships form; each participant finding their own avenues of creative contribution. Regular readings and assignments for seminars stimulate creativity, open discussion and debate, and offer a common set of references for the group. Master classes with visiting artists provide encouragement, inspiration and exposure to a diverse set of conceptual perspectives and practical methods. As projects reach their final edit, unique plans for exhibition and distribution are formulated.

The Brooklyn Rail summed it up with the title of their feature article: “UnionDocs Brings Auteurs Together”. For some, participation in the program may lead to further study. For others, it may lead to independent projects or strengthened careers within the industry. For all, it is an unparalleled immersion in the expansive field of documentary art.
