Great Prizes on Offer for NZ on Screen's Secondary Schools' Film Competition
NZ On Screen is reminding aspiring young secondary school filmmakers to start planning for their ScreenTest entries.
ScreenTest is a nationwide competition that gives students the chance to create their very own piece of screen heritage.
Secondary school students are invited to make or animate a short film that includes a ‘Coming of Age’ element – that in some way represents a journey from youth to adulthood in Aotearoa.
The idea of ‘Coming of Age’ can be interpreted in many ways but is marked by gaining maturity or learning something significant – intellectually, emotionally or sexually. Perhaps it could be a first experience of love, death, prejudice or rejection or possibly a moment of self-discovery where the world takes on a new view.
The short-listed films will be judged by The Breaker Upperer’s Jackie van Beek and the creators will win a set visit to a Warner Brothers International Television Production New Zealand working set. Warner Bros. is a leading producer of television in New Zealand and their productions include: the new black comedy Fresh Eggs; Survivor NZ; The Block; All or Nothing NZ All Blacks and First Dates.
The winning film will also be published on www.nzonscreen.com – the online showcase of NZ television, film, music video and web series.
Students have until Friday 2 November to submit their entries.
