The Making of Talzar

Early last week Amanda Herman, (Spring 2011 Artist in Residence – Alice Kaplan, Institute for the Humanities) sent NUAMPS a message regarding use of the green screen in the B180 Production Studio.  She is currently in production of The Making of Talzar.  Of course NUAMPS welcomes all opportunities to collaborate with Faculty, Staff, and Graduate Students to create higher quality productions!  This scene was shot on a Canon 5dmkII.

“This project is a collaboration with Saad Mulhadin, an Iraqi immigrant well known in Gothenburg, Sweden, for his work educating new immigrants in Sweden’s national, yearlong integration program. Mulhadin has been working on a science fiction story based on his life and conflict in his home country that explores ideas of exile, war, and the search for peace. Using the structure of a “Making of” short commonly found as an extra on DVDs, The Making of Talzar will be a short film which uses interviews with Mulhadin discussing the meaning of this allegory with fantastical scenes from the story itself”
