Young Creators: Got an Alibi

, ,
Alibi

We’re having a Young Creators hang-out on the last Wednesday of the month! We are stoked to have David de Lautour (Westside‘s Ted West) in to share on his experiences as co-creator and director of Plus6Four Entertainment’s binge-worthy web series Alibi.

David is also a director on Westside this season. Find out David’s advice to other filmmakers looking to create high-quality, local web series that further their careers.

Alibi is a six-part TVNZ OnDemand series where each episode shows the questioning of a suspect in the murder of a 17-year-old girl. Viewers get the fun of figuring out who’s responsible by choosing which order they watch the interviews.

There will be time for audience questions and the bar will be open. We’ll be out on the Sun Deck catching the last of summer. See you there!

WHEN: Wed 27 March 2019, 6:30pm. Talk starts 6:45pm
WHERE: Longroom – Sun Deck, 114 Ponsonby Road, Auckland
