July 20th saw a group of amazing people gather at the Regent Greymouth to talk all things film making with some of NZ's finest - Alun Bollinger,Sean Kelly and Tom Morum-Kelly. About thirty people of all ages spent a day sharing stories, talking about the process and then getting stuck in and shooting their own films. Some of the tangible benefits of this days work included creating an online support group and making plans to arrange another hands-on programme of work for the next school break. Watch this space as we plan and promote this!
I particularly want to shout out to all the people that joined us on the day, Alun, Sean and Tommy for sharing your incredible expertise, Patrick and Jacinda McBride at the Regent Greymouth and Eric Martini at West Coast TechSpace for providing space, technical expertise and support. Without all of you this event wouldn't have been possible.
The longer term plan is to collaboratively support our stakeholders to develop a West Coast Film-making Festival. Keen to get involved? Give me a call: 0211277659
