Our fabulous intake of 2011 WIFT NZ interns are all busy preparing for their final show reels/film projects. We are acutely aware of how costly some of these projects can be, representing a financial burden to both the interns and their families. This is why we are so pleased to have the support of the Gollan family and their generous donation of $3000 towards two intern scholarships of $1500 each. Last week, a panel comprising Bruce and Hugh Gollan, WITFT NZ Acting Vice President Fiona Milburn and WIFT NZ Executive Director Susi Newborn met to consider applications from the 2011 WIFT NZ Interns for two Linda Gollan Scholarships. The panel were unanimous in their decision and the two successful applicants will be announced on September 29.
Other interns are using creative ways of raising money for their projects. Here's one from intern Angel de Goede http://www.indiegogo.com/angeldegoede
