Congratulations to members Kim Georgine and Rafa Yam who have been selected to take part in Stage 2 of Script to Screen’s Paerangi Project.
A student at University of Otago, Rafa Yam is writing and directing Kahit Ano Para Sa Inyo (Anything For You), while Ōtautahi Christchurch resident Kim Georgine is directing Son’s Return Home. They are among the seven teams that will be matched with an experienced filmmaker who will guide them as they refine their short film project.
The Paerangi Project was created for aspiring filmmakers interested in developing a short film or web series who live outside the main centres, in remote regions, or those who are isolated from opportunities to learn about filmmaking. In Stage One each participant was given access to a series of video tutorials delivered by experienced filmmakers. After completion, participants who registered for Stage One were eligible to apply for Stage Two to receive six weeks of online mentorship.
