If you missed out on Script to Screen's Writers' Room session, you live outside of Auckland or you just want to listen again - don't forget that most of their sessions are recorded and made available on their website.
What is the World Watching? features three international guests bought to NZ by WIFT for our 2014 Co-production Summit for established producers. If you weren't able to get to the Script to Screen session, here is your opportunity to catch up and benefit from their knowledge and experience.
WIFT NZ and Script to Screen present a special discussion with Matt Baker (Director of Acquisitions at HanWay Films), Carole Sheridan (producer, founder of Singer Films, and former Exec. Producer Scottish Screen) and Joe Oppenheimer (Commissioning Editor at BBC Films). Join us to hear from these esteemed internationals as they talk to NZ producer and lecturer in screen (AUT) Christina Milligan about the films that are capturing their attention right now, and why.
They have released three other videos from 2014 and 2015, with more to come shortly! See below for details.
1) Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement met with Cliff Curtis at Q Theatre in Auckland, to discuss co-writing, co-directing and starring in their latest and closest collaboration WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS.
2) Award-winning Australian showrunnner, writer and director, Tony Ayres talks to NZ Screenwriter Fiona Samuel about his career as a creative dynamo, and his involvement at the helm of some of the most critically and commercially successful high-end television to come out of Australia, including critically acclaimed THE SLAP.
