Who We Are                                                                                                                                  KalaAnantarupah Media Labs –Production Department is the International producer and distributor of distinctive and audacious audiovisual content. Our mandate has been to engage Talents and the world audience  through the production of artistic and innovative media that reflects our country and world audience’s points of view.

We are looking to work with a wide range of creators -- filmmakers and other media artists -- in the production of KML Films, documentaries, animation and original interactive digital content for all platforms including theatre,tv,mobile and the Web.

The KML’s Leadership Stage Filmmaking -Power up with TEAMS Program is a unique creative laboratory, providing artists and storytellers with an opportunity to develop new forms of artistic, imaginative and socially relevant media.

As creative producers, we work closely with directors, artists and co-producers to build collaborative teams around projects and help shape conditions for success. 

Selection Process and Criteria
Some ideas for the projects we produce come to us as pitches.  Some are generated internally.  Others are borne out of extended conversations with like-minded creators. All are measured against our overall programming criteria, which includes:
• Talent and vision of the creator/director 
• Originality of concept and approach 
• Creative excellence 
• Great storytelling 
• Innovation in form 
• Clearly articulated sense of the intended audience 
• Social relevance and impact 
• Viability of project (in terms of access, timeframe and budget)

We produce projects from across the country: from a wide range of communities, on a wide range of topics and reflecting a diversity of voices.  

We want to tell stories that aren't being told elsewhere and from perspectives that are underrepresented in the media.  Ensuring our mix of projects reflects this balance means we consider some additional factors when deciding which projects to produce/coproduce:
• Genre balance (films,documentary, animation, new media) 
• Diversity of stories/topics (for example, even if all the stories were very original, it's unlikely we'd  produce six films on a given topic—say the environment-- at the same time) 
• Diversity of filmmakers 
• Aboriginal voices 
• Regional reflection 
• Gender ratio 
• Target audience 
• Formats (including multiplatform and educational) 
• Ratio of productions vs co-productions vs international co-productions 

As a niche producer focused on the high-end of the production spectrum, we are very selective about the projects we produce and coproduce. We complete between 60-70 productions a year: a mix of films, documentaries, animations and original digital projects.

Our resources are finite. Unfortunately we can't produce every good story, but we strive continually to nourish a creative climate that allows such work to flourish. 


Production/Co-Production Models 
There are three main models for working with us:
100% KML’s Leadership Stage Filmmaking-power up with Teams productions
These productions are financed entirely by the KML.  These projects are sometimes initiated internally.  Sometimes the idea is brought to us by a creator.  KML retains 100% of the copyright and also holds the distribution rights.

National KML’s Leadership Stage Filmmaking-power up with Teams co-productions

These productions are produced in partnership with independent production companies. KML’s Leadership Stage Filmmaking-power up with Teams  is involved as minority co-producer. KML distribution rights are subject to negotiation based on strategy/goals for the production.
International KML’s Leadership Stage Filmmaking-power up with Teams co-productions

Generally, these productions involve an independent production company, an international production company and KML’s Leadership Stage Filmmaking-power up with Teams (as a minority co-producer).   KML distribution rights are subject to negotiation based on strategy/goals for the production.   
  
Basic Co-Production Terms
• In general, the KML's financial contribution will not exceed 49% of the production budget.

• The private producer and KML producer share decision-making regarding key partners, artistic elements, stakeholders, financing and budget. 

• Both partners agree on the human and technical resources provided by the KML, as well as the marketing strategy. 

• Division of the copyright is established pro rata among the partners according to the contribution of each to the co-production, with KML retaining an undivided copyright interest in the production in the same proportion as KML's financial participation in the co-production. 

• Each partner recoups its investment according to the recoupment schedule,equally and pro portionally to their financial participation in the co-production, according priority to private investors.

Virtual Dance Orchestra



                     




The Virtual Orchestra is a multi-modal system architecture based on complex 3D sound environment processing and acompact user interface. The system architecture supports high performance sound content for VR applications, and the user controls the performance with a magnetically tracked handheld device.


Leadership stage through arts-Dance-music 
Virtual dance-orchester with Marion Dill, Kazue Ikeda, Angelo Della Iacono, Sipho Manesh, Arthur Staedli




One of the most exciting and rich experiences in the real world is music and all that surrounds it. A music performance—be it a classical music concert performed by a symphonic orchestra or a rock concert—always conveys a range of experiences. Music stimulates multiple senses at once. We hear and feel the sound vibrations in our bodies, and watching the performance complements the experience. As a result, we end up jumping, dancing, or discreetly following the rhythm with our arms or feet.


The objective of our work is to give music amateurs the opportunity to conduct a group of musicians and produce a new kind of multimedia experience. To explore this idea, we developed a semi-immersive virtual reality (VR) system, based on a large projection screen,designed to create an entertaining multimedia experience for nonexpert users. We decided to implement a music performance simulator, a VR system where several virtual characters play different musical instruments and adapt their performance according to the user's instructions.


Although we pay special attention to the realism of the scenario's visual representation, animating the musicians, and the music they produce (3D sound rendering), the conducting interface doesn't try to accurately reproduce the complex interaction of conducting an orchestra. This is left as future work. We provide an interface that partially captures the expressivity of users' gestures without forcing them to perform a specific conducting pattern.
