In January 2010, Residency Unlimtied curated a month long residency initiative for 12 local filmmakers who were invited for a day long residency each at the Kumukumu gallery. 'Special Features' used a simple yet precise set of constraints designed to maximize the time, space and resources available in order to produce new works of short film.
Residency Unlimited converted the gallery space into a low cost film studio, containing all the necessary ingredients for filming a movie: cameras, lighting, costumes, props, backgrounds, staging, etc. Artists, filmmakers, musicians, and performers were invited to use the space and equipment to each make a film over the course of one workday. The artists were challenged to see the possibilities within these limits in order to make a compelling work – an exercise in resourcefulness.
