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!
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).
