from Oasis by Ivan Ikic – First Cut Lab RE-ACT 2019


First Cut Lab RE-ACT was a consultancy program designed for feature films in editing phase from Croatia, Friuli Venezia Giulia region, Serbia and Slovenia. 

The program was made in collaboration and with the financial support of the RE-ACT initiative, making it possible for the absence of tuition fee for the participating projects.

The selected teams (director/producer/editor) were offered a creative framework, both benevolent & challenging, where to discuss and explore the artistic potential of their films. They screened their rough cut in a private session, and received expert feedbacks from three international film industry advisors, as well as tailor-made advice from a consultant editor.

Once the workshop was over, they received a report & a roadmap that can serve as guidance for further editing. Eventually, the ambition of First Cut Lab is to enhance the audience potential of the films.

The workshop took place online during the period from the 1st of December 2020 to 15th of January 2021. The core of the Lab took place over two consecutive days, and the exact dates were chosen in agreement with the selected teams to best answer the needs of their films.
