Writing is rewriting, and the final rewrite is in the edit. You’ve probably heard this a lot.
So we’re digging into the how of developing and crafting a good story for our last Young Creators meet-up of the year. We take a look at the important relationship between the writer, director and editor through a short film case study of Madam Black.
When a photographer runs over a young girl’s cat he finds himself inventing a story about its disappearance…
Funny and heartfelt, Madam Black has charmed audiences around the globe – selected for over 150 festivals and winner of 40 awards, including the ‘Prix du Public’ at Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival, and ‘Best Short’ at the New Zealand Film Awards. Madam Black is directed by Ivan Barge, written by Matthew Harris and was funded by the NZFC as a Fresh 30 short film.
Director Ivan Barge joins us for a Q&A, kicking off with a screening of the film. Stick around for a drink after!
