Last weekend, 25 aspiring short filmmakers gathered at Te Whaea for the 2015 Wellington Short Film Workshop. Attendees heard from industry practitioners including directors Sima Urale and Rob Sarkies, producer Vicky Pope and acting coach Brita McVeigh, who shared insights into each part of the filmmaking process, and discussed with attendees what they need to know to make their first short film.
On Sunday afternoon, participants pitched their short film ideas to filmmakers Rob Sarkies and Michelle Savill for discussion and feedback. The winner of the pitching session was Finn Teppett, with his idea DEMOCRACY.
Congratulations to Finn Teppett, and thanks to all the filmmakers who came along and shared their ideas.
This workshop was made possible with support from the Creative Communities Scheme.
