One of the main goals of all MIDPOINT program is the continuous support for its projects – from the very beginning “on the paper” till the editing room and even further on.
This project was developed within Feature Launch 2017 and has been awarded by the MIDPOINT Development Award of 8 000 EUR for the best project of the 2017 edition.
Moreover, ZANA has been selected to this year´s Works in Progress presentation at connecting cottbus. Naturally, we wanted to extend our support with a special editing module.
The first 5-day session (out of two totally) has been organized the first week in December in Prague. Antoneta came with the rough-cut material for ZANA, for her feature-length debut, produced by Casey Cooper Johnson (Crossing Bridges Films) and Dritan Huqi (On FILM PRODUCTION).
One-to-one intensive work in the editing room was lead by director, writer, and editor Ivo Trajkov, MIDPOINT Feature Launch group leader, who also serves as Head of Editing Department at Prague´s FAMU (Film and TV School of Academy of Performing Art).
We are happy that we could organize this module in collaboration with Prague´s newly renovated Studio FAMU, a specialized division of FAMU designed for film and television production and postproduction.
