That’s A Wrap: Rehearsal Room With Oliver Driver

,

Saturday’s Rehearsal Room with Oliver Driver was a great success, with four directors and eight actors working together to bring their scenes to life.

There was a bit of everything in the scripts workshopped on the day – comedy, drama, romance and action. By the end of the experience, everybody felt they had come a long way developing their scenes, and Oliver offered great practical tips and advice to all of the groups.

A highlight was definitely playing back the work at the end, seeing what everybody had produced and hearing about the journey they took to get there.

Sign up for the next Wellington and Auckland Rehearsal Rooms on EventBrite. More will be added as we schedule for 2016! Thanks to the New Zealand Film Commission for supporting this event.
