Ko te manu e kai ana i te miro nōnā te ngahere,
ko te manu e kai ana i te mātauranga nōnā te ao.
‘The forest belongs to the bird who feasts on the miro berry,
the world belongs to the bird who feasts on education’.
Our kaupapa is to inspire rangatahi to look beyond the glamour of filmmaking to the hidden engine room that controls the story and magic of a film – Editorial.
If you’d like to know more, come along to a workshop where you can find out what’s involved, hear from and talk with Māori who have made a career in film editing. Have a go with a scene from an award winning Māori drama on the latest editing software and find out just how much influence and responsibility an editor has on a film.
Tikanga Māori will be in place, some tutors are te reo speakers, and te reo is welcomed in the workshop but not required.
