BUMP TV x Pleasure Dome “Alter Ego Citadel” Application
BUMP TV and Pleasure Dome are seeking submissions for a residency project/commission in which the artist will create a 15-minute short film, experimental moving images or cinema project in the BUMP TV studio. We are looking for submissions that explore themes of constructed and performed identities, alter-egos, online personas, identity-based communities that focus on presentation and costuming while in play (i.e. Juggalos, furries, Dungeons and Dragons roleplay, etc), avatars, catfishing, the freedoms and limitation that are offered online and in real life when creating or acting in an imagined persona, character costuming, roleplay vs. identity, online chatrooms, and more.
This opportunity is open to anyone who can access the BUMP TV studio downtown Toronto. We encourage proposals from artists who are emerging or established. BUMP TV and Pleasure Dome are strongly committed to fostering diversity and welcome submissions by women, visible and invisible minorities, BIPOC folks, persons with disabilities, and LGBTQ2S+ persons. This residency project supports the production of new work with a $400 artist fee; including support from the BUMP TV studios. The finished work will be screened, March 2020, and accompanied by an artist interview for one month on BUMP TV.
Submission requirements: a written proposal describing your project and required equipment (up to 500 words), a link to preview videos of previous work and a complete submission form.
Deadline: Friday, Nov. 15, 11:59pm.
