Make A Film (11-13 Years) 9–13 October

9 Oct 2017 to 13 Oct 2017
Learn film-making from industry professionals.
Event type: 
TAPAC, The Auckland Performing Arts Centre
100 Motions Road, Western Springs



Ever wanted to make your own films? Now you can!

Learn the basics of filmmaking at our fun and creative 5-day programme these holidays. Write a story, then shoot and edit your short film. You can experience the collaborative environment of the filmmaking process, whether your role is in front or behind the camera!

Put your creative mind to work by screenwriting, directing, acting, editing and sound recording. You will not be limited to only one role, and you will be guided every step of the way by industry professionals. Learning the 'language' of film is an important part of this programme as is being creative with limited resources. It will be rewarding and lots of fun. At the end of the week you will have a film of your own creation that you can share with pride.

Plus your films will be screened at 3pm on Friday 13 October to an invited audience. Get your family and friends to come along!

You will also be able to watch your film/s at home via a link that will be emailed the following week.

What better way to spend the holidays than being a film-maker?
