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: Rewrite Your Story

Young Creators: Rewrite Your Story

Writing is rewriting, and the final rewrite is in the edit. You’ve probably heard this a lot.

Madam Black (2015)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!

Wed 14 November // 6:15 – 8pm. Talk starts 6:30pm
