Basement Theatre, Lower Greys Ave, Auckland
Script to Screen brings you Kath Shelper the award winning Australian producer behind ground breaking projects including feature SAMSON & DELILAH (Warwick Thornton), documentary feature TENDER (Lynette Wallworth) and television series BLACK COMEDY.
Not all projects fit neatly into a development or dramatic structure that can slip stream through traditional funding bodies. Many projects can’t be locked down straight away and need to be free to follow an organic process that is true to the filmmakers, and the story.
Kath Shelper talks to Philippa Campbell (TOP OF THE LAKE) about how she has shepherded projects for the screen through unconventional paths, enabling talented writers and directors to find their voice and their audience.
After the Talk, stay and have pizza on Script to Screen.
6:30 – 7:30pm: Talk
7:30 – 8:30pm: Cash bar & socialising with fellow filmmakers
$5 Koha (for those who can afford it)
