Is there a story from your community that you would like to tell through film but don’t know where to start?
Do you want the chance to have 6 months one-on-one mentoring with an experienced filmmaker?
Script to Screen presents the 2014 South Auckland Short Film Workshop – a free two-day workshop that will give you everything you need to know to make a short film. Over one weekend, four experienced filmmakers will guide you through each stage of the filmmaking process – from the initial concept, writing, directing, casting and finally to pitch your idea to collaborators and funders.
We are looking for new talent from South Auckland with a passion for storytelling, and in interest in learning how to make a short film. Six attendees/teams will also have the opportunity to participate in the South Shorts Mentoring Programme.
What do I need to bring to the workshop?
You are encouraged to come with a short film idea, and any team members you might wish to work with.
It is not compulsory to have a short film idea ready, but will mean that you get the most out of the workshop. We suggest you submit a written synopsis of your short film idea to us one week before the workshop – by Friday 21st November, 2014.
The synopsis should be half a page, describing what your film is about, what happens in the film, and what you want people to feel when they are watching it. You could also include why this story is important to you or why this story needs to be told.
Remember to include details like, how long you expect the film to be (short films are usually 5 – 15 mins long), whether it is a comedy or drama etc, and the characters’ names.
On Day 2 of the workshop, participants will be invited to pitch their short film idea to the group in a pitching competition, to a panel of industry mentors. Six winners will be chosen to participate in our South Shorts Mentoring Programme.
You are welcome to pitch the short film idea you submitted, or another idea. The pitch is to be kept to 5 minutes.
Cost: The workshop is free. Morning and afternoon tea will be provided. Please bring a $15 koha to cover lunch for the weekend.
Participants should be from the South Auckland community or have strong connections there.
