ON-SET FILMING HAS BEGUN
Winners of the 2016 Roxy5 Short Film Competition with Capital E have begun re-filming their stories with film industry professionals, Capital E tutors and Park Road Post Productions.
Film industry professionals, Capital E and the Miramar Events Trust have spent the past 3 weeks on set around the Wellington region including, Martinborough, Kāpiti Coast and Strathmore to re-capture the brilliant stories in short films created by students from Kāpiti College, Wellington High School and Kahurangi School, which took out the top 3 prizes in the Roxy5 Short Film Competition with Capital E. Each film has been allocated approximately 3 shoot days to work on set and have done remarkably well to shoot both indoor and outdoor amongst the 2 coldest weeks of the year!
Co-Producers, Kristy Grant (Miramar Events Trust) and Melissa Conway (Capital E) let us in on the top highlights so far:
- Seeing the strengths of the Students working in a professional and supportive environment has been the biggest highlight. We have been working with these groups for almost 9 months now and the growth and transition during their learning journeys has been outstanding.
- We’ve also enjoyed watching how everyone works together as a team to make things happen; lots of laughs; lots of hard work and it has been so great to see how much everyone has gained from this wonderful experience – students getting hands on and creative to develop their skills and mentors genuinely enjoying sharing their knowledge with young upcoming talent.
- The number of chocolate fish that have been eaten on set is incredible – one person (who shall remain nameless) is rumoured to have consumed 16 in one day!!
The re-made films will be screened as part of the Young & Cinematic Programme part of the Capital E National Arts Festival in March 2017.
