Submission Deadline Extended to March 1, 2021
Even in isolation, we can connect. A Quiet Scene: L.A. is a free film project and screening initiative that encourages the public to create an original short film that is an authentic reflection of Los Angeles during current times. Grab a single shot of a quiet moment in L.A and use a track from Roger and Brian Eno's Luminous EP as the score.
Participation is free and open to all ages. The deadline for submission has been extended through March 1, 2021, 11:59 p.m. PST, so you have extra time to perfect your original short film!
A Quiet Scene: L.A. provides a Los Angeles perspective to the highly successful 2020 public audio-visual project—A Quiet Scene—created by Deutsche Grammophon and the Eno brothers in 2020 in support of their Mixing Colours album; this program featured short scenes shot by people from their newly found confined spaces at home in the first wave of the global pandemic.
The competition/screening project is presented by The Music Center, Los Angeles’ performing arts center, and dublab, a community supported radio station based on Los Angeles, and in collaboration with Deutsche Grammophon. Banner artwork by Radha Vishnubhotla.
