Someday tips for budding filmmakers
Budding filmmakers will be helped to tell their stories in a series of workshops being held around the country over the next few months.
It’s part of the Outlook for Someday challenge, which asks young people up to the age of 24 to make short sustainability-related films of any genre, filmed with any camera and any length up to 5 minutes.
There are more than 20 one-day workshops, including one being held today in west Auckland, and five two-day kaupapa Maori workshops involving an overnight stay on a marae.
Each participant takes part in making a short film which is screened at the end of the workshop, and they come away with story ideas for further films.
The Outlook for Someday challenge, which is in its ninth year, selects 20 of the best films which are then entered for international film festivals.
Two of last year’s films have been placed.
Te Ao o te Tuturuatu, made by 11 year-old Tomairangi Harvey after participating in a Christchurch workshop last year, was selected for the prestigious Japan Wildlife Film Festival, and Beeing a Honey Maker by pupils from from Avalon Intermediate School got in to the Best Short Film for Kids category at the Green Screen International Wildlife Film Festival in Germany.
