Story Camp Aotearoa is a residential feature film workshop that fosters craft, voice and vision. Talented New Zealand filmmakers workshop their projects with exceptional international and local advisors. The week long workshop is crafted around the specific needs of the chosen teams.

This year we are proud to pilot Story Camp Advanced, a workshop for creative teams with feature film projects close to production. The selection panel of  producer Philippa Campbell, director Hamish Bennett and producer Tim White were impressed by the calibre of the ideas and the talented teams behind them.

 

 

 

 

The selected teams participating in Story Camp Advanced are:

  • Ainsley Gardiner, Briar Grace-Smith, Reikura Kahi and Tearepa Kahi with COUSINS
  • Gaysorn Thavat, Sophie Henderson, Emma Slade and Ginny Loane with THE JUSTICE OF BUNNY KING
  • Jan Oliver Lucks, Alex Reed, Alexander Behse and Natalie Medlock with THERE’S NO I IN THREESOME
