SCGNZ and DEGNZ present “The Editor, a Composer’s Friend or Foe?”

A special event that looks at the importance of communication and teamwork between an Editor and a Film Composer… Will they be friends or foes by the end of the mix?

Join us to listen to a discussion between acclaimed New Zealand editors Annie Collins (One Thousand Ropes, The Great Maiden’s Blush, Consent: The Louise Nicholas Story) and Jonno Woodford-Robinson (Mortal Engines, Pork Pie, Mahana, What We Do In the Shadows) chaired by Andrew Hagen from the Screen Composers Guild.

There will be a question time included in this sure-to-be interesting evening, so come along and see how you can avoid falling onto the wrong side of the (musical) tracks.

Go behind-the-scenes into the creative process of making Fresh Eggs with co-creator/writer Nick Ward and producer/lead director Britta Hawkins. Fresh Eggs is a six-part black comedy for TVNZ 2, which follows a couple’s quest for “the good life” that goes wickedly awry. Q&A moderated by Gaysorn Thavat, another director on the show.

 

“If you’re ever doing a story table, ever working with other writers, just never say, ‘no’. Never ever say, ‘no’. The minute you start saying, ‘no’, is that’s when things get really messy.”

– Nick Ward

“There were lots of things that we did differently. We three directors ended up working as like one ensemble cast of directors, which is also not typical. Normally you come in and you do your block and then you go away. And you tend not to cross paths with the other directors at all.”

– Britta Hawkins

 

This event was part of DEGNZ’s Screenlink series, hosted with the New Zealand Writers Guild.
