According to information published on the Proimagenes site of Colombia, the Bogotá Audiovisual Market (BAM), as a circulation and business platform of the Chamber of Commerce of Bogotá and Proimágenes, with the support of other entities, in its 8th edition awarded to the talent in the categories BAM Projects (cinema and television), Screenings, Bammers and BAM Stories, actively participate.
In the 2017 edition, the digital magazine Shock, which has been for several years in BAM looking for new talents and audiovisual proposals, found in the Intocables series an innovative proposal to which it awarded with the financing of the pilot of the series which it is already available on the YouTube platform.
Intocables is a documentary web series in which through the protagonist Nadia Granados, a Colombian artist interested in the arts of the body such as video, performance, magic and installation, seeks to show how the body is a political tool and a popular medium of popular communication.
After the release of the first chapter will come four more chapters with provocative stories and suggestive images of other bodies inhabited and resignified in a society where nudity, inherent in life itself, can disturb and even be sin.
Juan Pablo Castiblanco, editor of Shock, affirms that “Bammers is the ideal space to find content that speaks to our audience generated by our own audience. It is where we can find the perfect tone in which young people are conversing, along with their concerns and struggles. It is also the way in which Shock fulfills its intention to always be renewing its language while maintaining its essence.”
For its 2018 edition, the BAM has its open calls until March 15, 2018 and the Bammers program is renewed by inviting people between the ages of 22 and 27 who want to have exclusive training activities and, in turn, the possibility of accessing the market and multiple activities that the same offers.
