Young Creators: Serious about Series

, ,
Flat3

Make something. Anything. And be prepared to face some hard unpaid work. JJ Fong and Ally Xue will discuss how they found their creative soulmates (Roseanne Liang and Perlina Lau) to form Flat3 Productions, and turned their pipe dream into a reality.

If you’re serious, or even curious, about making web series, you won’t want to miss this honest Young Creators session with the filmmakers behind award-winning series Flat 3, Friday Night Bites and Unboxed!

WHEN:           Tue 26 November 2019, 7pm. Talk starts 7:15pm
WHERE:          Longroom, 114 Ponsonby Rd, Auckland

 

Flat3 Productions was founded by 4 Kiwi women of Chinese heritage. Since their humble beginnings, they have accumulated a wealth of experience in writing, directing, and producing scripted comedy/drama for online consumption. Flat3’s award-winning content has garnered four NZTV award nominations. After 8 years together, the team has decided to make the jump into premium TV format. This next phase has already begun with the company securing NZ On Air production funding for a TVNZ television comedy (Creamerie). Individually, Ally and JJ have expanded their interest into other areas of filmmaking – primarily producing and writing. The pair recently wrapped principal photography on their TVNZ OnDemand teen comedy webseries (MEME).

Young Creators: Got an Alibi

, ,
Alibi

We’re having a Young Creators hang-out on the last Wednesday of the month! We are stoked to have David de Lautour (Westside‘s Ted West) in to share on his experiences as co-creator and director of Plus6Four Entertainment’s binge-worthy web series Alibi.

David is also a director on Westside this season. Find out David’s advice to other filmmakers looking to create high-quality, local web series that further their careers.

Alibi is a six-part TVNZ OnDemand series where each episode shows the questioning of a suspect in the murder of a 17-year-old girl. Viewers get the fun of figuring out who’s responsible by choosing which order they watch the interviews.

There will be time for audience questions and the bar will be open. We’ll be out on the Sun Deck catching the last of summer. See you there!

WHEN: Wed 27 March 2019, 6:30pm. Talk starts 6:45pm
WHERE: Longroom – Sun Deck, 114 Ponsonby Road, Auckland

Young Creators: Before You Say Yes to Web Series

, ,
Before You Say Yes to Web Series

Get more control over your career by knowing the pitfalls to avoid before you set out on your web series dreams.

Be informed about issues currently facing web content creators in NZ. Lately, we’ve seen some appalling agreements given to our director members to sign.

In response, DEGNZ has been busy on a standard contract for scripted content on the Web for Directors that will be launched at Before You Say Yes to Web Series.

You have the right to be compensated fairly for your creativity, ideas and hard work. This contract will help!

If the mention of “contract” makes you want to curl up into the foetal position, no fear, we’re bringing Tim Riley in from Dominion Law to break down that jargon. Without boring you to death.

DEGNZ supports your right to work for free, too. But if you do get the opportunity to make scripted online content and be paid, we’d like you to know what we believe is fair for your creative contribution. And when there isn’t enough hard cash involved, what you should ask for to make up the difference.

Be sure to bring your mates and get in the mix!

 

When: Saturday 28 October, 10am – 12pm

Entry: DEGNZ members – Free / Non-members – $5 koha

Where: St Columba Centre, 40 Vermont St, Ponsonby, Auckland

Main entrance & carpark behind the Centre.

 

Before You Say Yes to Web Series is the first event and official launch of Young Creators, a brand new initiative from the Directors & Editors Guild of NZ.
