The Making of a DIY Digital Documentary
with filmmaker/music producer Vivek Bald!
at Third World Newsreel
545 Eighth Ave, 10th Flr btwn 37th and 38th Streets
In this workshop, filmmaker Vivek Bald will discuss the experience of
making his recently-completed documentary, Mutiny: Asians Storm
British Music, which was produced with minimal funding over the
course of seven years, using mini DV cameras and a series of desktop
edit systems from Adobe Premiere to Final Cut Pro 3. Bald will screen
short clips from the documentary and discuss a range of issues from
the technical to the financial to the legal to the political, and
lessons learned from both successes and mistakes along the way.
Vivek Bald is a New York-based film- and videomaker, music producer,
and writer. Bald’s second full-length documentary, Mutiny: Asians
Storm British Music is a hybrid of music documentary and social
documentary which charts three decades in the cultural and political
coming-of-age of the British South Asian second-generation. Producing
and performing music under the name Siraiki, Bald is also co-founder
of the groundbreaking Mutiny club night in New York City, which has
become a crucial international hub on the South Asian electronica
music scene.
