Bettakultcha June 7th 2011

Shoot Protocol

Bettakultcha is an awe inspiring event, where speakers give a five minute powerpoint presentation on any topic and have to abide by the rules of exactly 20 slides, fifteen seconds a slide. The topics can be about anything from how Starwars is based on Mills & Boon to the history of drag queens. The event has grown from a small crowd of sixty people to an expected attendance of 350 for the next one.

Back in February 2010 Robert St-John Smith, founder of 5YLAC films, did a talk

at the very first Bettakultcha, entitled “How not to make a film ” based on the experiences of Mortus illumina (which is still stuck inĀ  post production hell). On June 7th, he will be giving a presentation entitled “How to make a film” based on the recently completed short, Killing Amy, which was inspired by the Bettakultcha event.

Tickets for the event are available here
