DEGNZ presents three award-winning filmmakers in a workshop series for short film directors in Te Waipounamu South Island.
Thousands of short films get made every year by filmmakers around the world. One challenge for directors is how do you direct a short film that gets noticed by audiences and the industry, especially when you invest so much of yourself in your film?
Hear how three filmmakers made their acclaimed shorts and what they learnt doing them. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and discover ways to improve your craft and your projects. Direct South brings you three perspectives as each director shares practical insights into their personal directing process for short film.
