As part of a collaboration between BOP Film, Baycourt, and the International Youth Silent Film Festival, we ran a series of filmmaking workshops in Tauranga and Whakatane. The students spent three days learning about writing, directing, planning, shooting, editing, acting, makeup & SFX, and stunts.
This is Building Relationships, the film we made in July as part of the Tauranga workshop.
Shot in one day, with myself shooting one of the cameras and students on another.
Getting stuck in and just doing it is my favourite way to make films. Focus on having a good time doing it and work with what you have, you’ll learn a ton and have something to look back on.
Don’t worry it was totally safe ;)
