Script to Screen Event with Leanne Pooley and Matthew Metcalfe

Posted Wednesday 23 Oct 2013

Tuesday 29 October, 7pm drinks, 7:30 start, The Classic, 321 Queen Street, $5 koha appreciated.

Hillary's successful ascent of Mt Everest in 1953 is one of NZ's most important and iconic stories, and in 2013 the story comes to the big screen for the first time. Beyond the Edge, to be released 24 Oct, is NZ's first 3D film and had record international presales.

What is it about the narrative approach of the filmmakers that turned a well-known historical event into a gripping cinematic tale?

Join writer/director and WIFT member Leanne Pooley (Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls, Shackleton's Captain) and writer/producer Matthew Metcalfe (Giselle, Dean Spanley) as they talk to chair Toa Fraser (Giselle, Dean Spanley) about how they found a way into this iconic story and how the use of 3D played a role in storytelling.

Stay afterwards for a slice of pizza  and a drink.

Tuesday 29 October, 7pm drinks, 7:30 start, The Classic, 321 Queen Street, $5 koha appreciated.
