Canadian Reflections
CBC national network

Contact:
Jess Ruge
Program Development Executive, "Canadian Reflections"
website: www.cbc.ca/reflections
e-mail: jess_ruge@cbc.ca.
phone: (416) 205-7165
fax: (416) 205-7107


The mother of all Canadian short film broadcasters, Canadian Reflections has been on the air since 1970. This is the first stop for those trying to sell their films, for one main reason: this show pays real money. Licences are negotiated individually, but are usually around $10,000 per television half-hour pro-rated (which works out to approximately $500 per broadcast minute). This show represents your only chance to earn significant broadcast income. In addition, it is considered the most prestigious broadcast showcase for Canadian short films. Unfortunately, the 3 pm time slot means that films containing profanity, sexual content, nudity or violence cannot be programmed. These movies formerly had the option of going to CBC's other short film showcase, Open Wide; sadly, however, that show is no longer with us.

In the fall of 1997, Canadian Reflections will be broadcast twice a week (once in the usual Friday afternoon slot, plus a repeat on Sunday afternoon). This effectively doubles each film's exposure to a wide national audience.

In addition to completed films, Canadian Reflections will sometimes pre-buy a film at the rough or fine cut stage, in exchange for a "Produced in association with CBC- Television" credit. The show rarely gets involved at a script stage, and only with experienced production teams.

The fee includes 3 years of unlimited plays (in practice, this usually means two or three broadcasts, though shorter films are also occasionally used as network fills). This includes a one-year "first window" in English Canada - in other words, you cannot sell to any other broadcaster for the first year. Don't fret about this - the other broadcasters are realistic enough to wait in line. Canadian Reflections does not place any restrictions on your right to distribute your film to festivals or show your film theatrically; however, some festivals will not consider films which have been previously broadcast.

Contact:
Wendy McGee
Director of Programming
ph: (780) 430-2800
fax: (780) 437-3188


The movie networks don't formally program shorts, but they do use them as "interstitials" (that's "filler" to you and me). When the feature ends at 8:37, they need something to help bring them to the top of the hour. Interstitials count as Canadian content, so they do buy quite a few Canuck short films. Movie Max! buys films produced in the 1980's or earlier, so this might be the time to dust off those old demo tapes in your attic. Wendy will view every tape that arrives on her desk, but she particularly looks for 12-15 minute films aimed at a mainstream market (in other words, don't send her your latest experimental expression of angst). A light, fast-paced, well-produced short will have the best chance.

Licence fees are negotiated individually, but are generally in the $100-$300 range for one or two years of unlimited plays, non-exclusive.

Launched in January 1996, The Independent Eye presents 13 one-hour episodes each year, loosely grouped according to genre, region, subject, technique or achievement.

The show has an annual call for submissions (usually in December) but Judy accepts submissions year-round.

The Independent Eye pays $33 per minute for unlimited plays over four years, non-exclusive. However, its production values, growing reputation and attractive 10 pm time slot make it a worthwhile door to knock on.

Like Movie Max (see above), Superchannel buys Canadian shorts as interstitials. Sandy's programming and licensing practises are virtually identical to Wendy's at Movie Max. Like Wendy, Sandy looks at every tape she receives, but short, light films have by far the best chance for acceptance.

Licence fees are negotiated individually, but are generally in the $100-$300 range for one or two years of unlimited plays, non-exclusive.


U.S. Broadcasters

American broadcasters tend to be interested in American short films. However, the following folks tell us that they do look at Canadian submissions. A phone call or fax would be a worthwhile first step, however, before putting your tape in the mail. Our thanks to the Canadian Film Centre's Jenna Donahue-Bordeau for most of the following contacts.

My name is Dan Schaefer and I produce a local(Portland Metro area)short film television show called "Shorts". Currently we are looking for new and exciting films to be aired on the show.

or you can e-mail me directly on how to submit your film at:

theshortshow@yahoo.com

Once we recieve your film you will be notified of it's airtime and airdates. We are looking for original material so keep copyright material in mind when submitting. For instance, music authorization for example. Also NTSC on a DV tape is the best source to send your film on. This can be a problem if you are out of the US and submit on PAL or Seacam formats. Also the quality of DV tape is higher for broadcast that VHS. DVD are difficult to, so please send it on a tape. One other question people have is, "should I submit it if it is an old film? Should I send a current project?". The answer is send your eariest work as well, many people have probably not had the chance to see your work and would like to. So send what you have.

Send your short film to:

NATIONAL LAMPOON

Renowned comedy publisher National Lampoon recently acquired Lorne Michaels' Burly Bear Network to create National Lampoon Networks. We are producing a new program with a working title of "National Lampoon's Comedy Academy" to be hosted by funny girl, Alison Becker. The program features comedic short films, stand-up and sketch comedy from the best up and coming writers, comedians and directors.

We would like to extend an invitiation to all to submit your films, skecthes and/or stand-up acts. Short films may be 30-seconds to 8-minutes in length. Films can be of any nature (animation, film, digital, etc) as long as they have a comedic sensibility. We are happy to view your films on Beta, BetaSP, DVD or miniDV (prefered).

Should your film be selected, we will contact you. The program reaches 5-millions homes. This is a terrific exposure opportunity for your film, act or ideas.

ALSO: As a local NYC producer, I would love to come to your theater to create profiles, EPKs and packages about your comedy troupes for Comedy Academy. These are created by taping your sketches and/or stand-up and by conducting interviews with the comedians and directors. Both elements are then edited into a 3-5 minute feature about your sketch group and its participants. Sort of a behind-the-scenes look (fi you will). If you're interested in being featured, please send an e-mail to jhealey@nationallampoon.com. Please refrain from e-mailing me about short films, etc. Submit those via the link above.

America's Best Student Shorts
"The Pitch"

Glen Echo Associates, LLC
7212 Helmsdale Road
Bethesda, Maryland 20817


Dear Moviemaker,

Student moviemakers are producing great shorts, but few people ever see them. They can be posted on the web, or entered in festivals, for a fee. Yet mainstream audiences are denied the opportunity to appreciate the time, effort, and talent that students have put into their projects, and student moviemakers are denied the exposure they deserve.

America’s Best Student Shorts places great student shorts before the general public. America’s Best Student Shorts is a weekly half-hour TV program that showcases six or eight student projects ranging from one to ten minutes in length and averaging three or four minutes.

America’s Best Student Shorts appeals to a late night audience. It is targeted at independent commercial TV stations in major markets.

We are actively acquiring limited, nonexclusive licenses to include student shorts in the show. The copyright holder retains the copyright and control over the short, and can enter festivals and market the short in other venues.

America’s Best Student Shorts is an excellent way for students to showcase their talents before a broad audience. In addition, we provide an honorarium that can help finance festival entries or launch the next project. The honorarium for the shorts that we license and showcase is $75/minute. The exposure we give student work may well lead to other opportunities to sell rights.

The shorts may be live action, stop action, or animation and any subject or genre, but they must have high production values and they must be entertaining to a late night audience. America’s Best Student Shorts is not aimed at an audience of experimental film cognoscenti.

There is no submission fee. Send the submission agreement along with your movie (VHS or DVD, please) to the address above. Questions? Check the FAQs, then e-mail us.

With best regards,

Tom Hoopengardner, Producer
America's Best Student Shorts
