Talent Campus wraps on high note with Warbeck

Discussions, lectures offers opportunities for all

The Berlinale Talent Campus wrapped on a high note Thursday when composer Stephen Warbeck and the VW Orchestra took the stage for the Hitting the Right Note presentation.

Playing as well as telling, Warbeck held his eager young audience’s attention in just one of what Campus Talent Topper Cathy Rohnke called “this year’s magnificent sessions.”

Competition jury topper Charlotte Rampling, producer Fred Roos and Gallic helmer Michel Gondry were just some of the talents who lent their skills and experience to the talents to be who thronged to Berlin’s House of Culture to meet, greet, learn and, above all, network.

As well as getting to sit in front of an admiring audience, a visit to the Talent Campus provided the pros with a chance to chill out.

“If your film’s in the Competition,” Rohnke said, “you have very little time for yourself so we always make sure our guests have a relaxed time.”

Auteur Michel Gondry said he liked it so much because the talents ask different questions than journalists. “Over here, no one wants to reveal secrets or dig for dirt.”

Six highly concentrated days of podium discussions, lectures and personal contacts apparently paid off in a big way. Said British animator Nina Wilson: “I had a lot of opportunity and space to think about my career. I also love a party and the social life is unbelieveable!”

While Wilson would have liked to have seen more people from the post-production side (“Maybe I should turn myself into a screenwriter, but I’m a minority here and I like that.”), the only thing she really wants to see added is “a vending machine. I have to go to Potsdamer Platz for chocolate.”
