Paerangi Project

Paerangi Project offers accessible learning about how to develop your own short film or web series. It is for new and emerging talent and encourages making screen stories in your own backyard.

Paerangi Project was a development programme designed to reach fresh, distinctive and authentic voices across Aotearoa. The programme was for those interested in developing a short film or web series who live outside the main centres, in remote regions, or those who are isolated from opportunities to learn about filmmaking. Paerangi Project offered accessible learning with Stage One and Stage Two delivered online. Participants were given the knowledge and tools needed to develop exceptional short film or web series projects.  Read More…

Paerangi was delivered in 2021. The video tutorials are now available to everyone.
