About this event

Script to Screen, in partnership with Northland Youth Theatre, presents a free four-day film workshop in the October school holidays for 14 – 22 year olds.

The workshop helps young participants to develop skills in crafting a story idea, writing a script and acting. The aim of the workshop is to foster writing talent and encourage aspiring filmmakers. No experience or prior knowledge of filmmaking is necessary.

The programme will be taught by actor and Director of West Coast Youth Theatre, Holly Shanahan (Power Rangers Jungle Fury).

When and where:

Tuesday 11 October - Friday 14 October 2022

9am – 2:30pm each day

Northland Youth Theatre, 197 Lower Dent Street, Whangārei 0110

Programme Structure:

Day 1 - Participants learn how to find a story they want to tell and how to craft a narrative that is compelling on screen.

Day 2 – Participants develop their own film concept and write a scene for their film.

Day 3 – Holly leads exercises in acting for the screen. Using what was written on day two, participants act in scenes written by other group members, guided by Holly.

Day 4 – We will tape the scenes, watch them as a group and discuss what was learned.

Cost: The workshop is free but please register via EventBrite as spaces are limited.

Morning Tea, Lunch and Afternoon Tea are provided. However, if you have special dietary requirements (allergies, gluten free, dairy free, keto, paleo, etc) please bring food with you.

This workshop is presented in partnership with Northland Youth Theatre and is made possible thanks to generous support from Foundation North.
