So, You’re Writing Your First Feature?

May 26, 2015 - May 26, 2015, Auckland

Writing of any sort can be a lonely process. From that initial FADE IN, to hashing out that final, closest-to-perfect draft, writing a film is often a long and arduous journey.

How do you keep the passion that drives you to create, while giving so much attention to structure and precision? And how can you ensure your work stands out despite the pitfalls of inexperience?

Three NZ screenwriters with a produced feature film under their belt discuss taking that leap of faith. Dianne Taylor (Beyond the Known World, Apron Strings), Roseanne Liang (My Wedding and Other Secrets) and Max Currie (Everything We Loved) talk to producer Fraser Brown (Orphans and Kingdoms) about their experiences, what they wish they knew then, and how the writing process changes while you develop as a writer.

Tues 26th May, The Classic, 321 Queen Street. 7pm drinks, 7:30-8:30pm talk. $5 koha appreciated.

Make sure to stick around afterwards for a slice of pizza on us!
