🎥That is a wrap! The first Young Filmmakers Holiday Workshop was a great success! A total of 30 young filmmakers between 10- 16 years old participated in this hands-on film experience, resulting in 10 creative short films. These premiered on Sunday 18th July at a public screening at Whitestone City.

This workshop could not have been possible without the following support:

– Waitaki District Council Community Group Grant made it possible to purchase an iMac device for film editing. This device will soon be available for the community to use for filming projects!
– Waitaki District Council Creative Communities Scheme funded the tutors, The Youth Centre – Ōamaru where the workshop took place and the rental of the screening venue, Whitestone City.
– The Youth Centre – Ōamaru
– Oamaru Whitestone City Trust
– Subway – Ōamaru generously “subsidising” a shared lunch for our young filmmakers.
– Oamaru Cinema for hosting a special screening of ‘Space Jam: A New Legacy’ for our young filmmakers.
– Guest speaker, cinematographer Richard Scott.

And of course, special thanks to our tutors who facilitated the Young Filmmakers Holiday Workshop: Maddy Maxwell and Bridget Ellis.

We look forward to running another workshop soon!
