If you re the Caribbean producer of a narrative
feature film or creative documentary in pre-pro-
duction, then the T&T Film Festival (TTFF) is inter-
ested in you.
For the third year running, the Festival is making
a call for submissions for its Film in Development
Award, sponsored by bpTT. The award is a place in
the Rotterdam Lab for producers at the prestigious
International Film Festival Rotterdam in January 2015,
a release from the Festival said.
The Rotterdam Lab---of which the TTFF is a nom-
inating partner---is designed to provide emerging film
producers with assistance in getting their film projects
completed and brought to audiences around the
world. The lab includes panel discussions organised
on different topics, like development, production,
sales, financing, distribution, promotion and televi-
In these panels, experts from the international film
industry provide producers tools on how to present
their projects and how to build up a useful interna-
tional network. In addition to the organised Lab pro-
gramme, selected producers are encouraged to take
advantage of their time in Rotterdam as much as
possible by strengthening their network and participate
in other events, like networking lunches, cocktails
and other panels.
To be eligible for the Film in Development Award,
producers must be a citizen or permanent resident
of a Caribbean country producing a film in the region.
They must provide: a producer s statement, a treat-
ment between five and ten pages long, an estimated
budget, and a list of key crew members (if any com-
In addition to a place on the Lab, the chosen pro-
ducer will be provided with five nights accommo-
dation in Rotterdam as well as a festival pass and
invitations to networking events. The Lab is conducted
in English and airfare and per diem are the respon-
sibility of the producer.
ABOUT THE FILM
Welcome to Warlock chronicles
an argument between two young
men and a gambling loss that runs
quickly and wildly out of control.
After an angry slap, surly
contemplation draws guns out and
soon people are dying.
Director and cinematographer
Jeffrey Alleyne makes his resource
limitations a strength. Most of the
film is shot in Cameron Circle,
where he lives, and his familiarity
with the neighbourhood makes the
geography of the space as much a
character in the film as his actors.
There are flaws, as you might
imagine, with this approach.
Characters run past the same
buildings and walls several times
and it's hard to understand
whether it's meant to be the same
spot or another that looks like it.
Alleyne's fast cutting style
falters only once in a scene of
dancing and daggering and the film
hits molasses, lingering on the
young people jooking waist far too
long and to little point.
But as a work of action-driven
fiction meant to immerse a viewer
in the world of readily spent lives
and easily pulled triggers, even
Warlock's fast-moving videography
seems barely able to keep up with
people who vanish like vapour off
"I was hurt," he said.
But even more blows would
come. DVD pirates are now pack-
aging both his older films and
other films entirely as a sequel.
He s had YouTube take down
postings of the film four times,
but even so the film has racked
up more than 40,000 views dur-
ing the brief windows of time it
Alleyne doesn t claim any spe-
cial social-media savvy, but it was
clear he was winning attention
and he s begun to reach out to
communities in a nationwide tour,
and the actors are being received
warmly. Already, the Warlock T-
shirts are outselling the official
DVDs (http://ow.ly/zRKIp) and a
new series is being planned with
catchphrases from the film.
"I created something for the
people on the street," Alleyne said
with a wry smile, "and even
though it cost we, it s there for
