With Film London investing £100,000 in the September 2015 intake, FLAMIN Productions will be able to offer successful applicants up to £30,000 in production funding. Backed by Arts Council England, FLAMIN Productions offers artists the opportunity to break new ground and bring about a step change in their practise.
One of FLAMIN Productions most critically acclaimed alumni is Elizabeth Price the 2012 Turner prize winner. Price was funded during the first round of FLAMIN Productions for her film West Hinder (2012). Creating immersive video installations that draw on a variety of sources; from historical film archives and photography, through to collections of artefacts. Price’s work takes the viewer into an overwhelming sensory experience. Working with FLAMIN Productions, her practice developed with single screen digital film, a medium that is becoming indispensable for many filmmakers.
