Reminder - Two Day Mobile Filmmaking Workshop

Posted Tuesday 23 Jul 2013

CoLab (AUT) and MINA (Mobile Innovation Network Aotearoa) are presenting a two-day mobile filmmaking workshop,  July 26 - 27 at the City Campus.

In the build-up to the 2013 Mobile Innovation Symposium and Screening, MINA co-founders Max Schleser  and Laurent Antonczak are giving you the opportunity to craft your mobile phone filmmaking skills under their watchful eyes and ears.

This two-day intensive workshop will give you an overview of the many styles and techniques used to create films using a mobile phone. Max and Laurent will explore the ideas, scripting, shooting and editing processes to enable you to produce your own film, of a standard high enough to submit for the 2013 MINA Film Screening.

Who should attend? Anyone! As long as you are creative, enjoy using your smartphone, and like to tell stories. We recommend that you have some editing experience, at least with iMovie or Windows Media Player.

The fee is $110 for the two days ($55 for Students), register now via:

Friday Tigers to screen at NZIFF

Posted Tuesday 23 Jul 2013

Notable Pictures' short film Friday Tigers, funded by the New Zealand Film Commission and written and directed by Aidee Walker screens at the New Zealand International Film Festival, which kicked off in Auckland this week. Notable Pictures is run by Julie Parnell who picked up the coveted 'Woman to Watch' award at the 2010 WIFT awards.

The film has also been selected in competition for NEW ZEALAND'S BEST. The film was submitted to the festival with over 90 other short films, which were whittled down to 12 on a short list before well known filmmaker Alison Maclean selected 6 finalists.

This means Friday Tigers will be judged alongside five other NZ short films, with substantial cash prizes up for grabs.

WIFT members can support by coming along to one of the screenings and voting for your favourite.

If you can't make the NZ's BEST screening, the film is also playing before the French romantic comedy It Boy, an excellent and funny film.
