Luke Jack­son dis­cov­ered a love of writ­ing in English classes at Auck­land Gram­mar. That led him to the jour­nal­ism course at Auck­land Uni­ver­sity of Tech­nol­ogy, where he’s halfway through a three-year de­gree. Be­tween stud­ies, he’s taken up a part-time in­tern­ship at North & South. “I started with fil­ing, phone an­swer­ing and mak­ing cof­fees, but my cof­fees were pretty aw­ful, so they let me loose on some writ­ing and proof-read­ing.” Since then, Jack­son has been writ­ing Four Cor­ners sto­ries and film re­views for the mag­a­zine (see his piece on the In­ter­na­tional Youth Silent Film Fes­ti­val on page 28). After talk­ing to the Us-based fes­ti­val founder, he was in­spired to en­ter a three-minute silent film of his own. “I’ve al­ways liked film­mak­ing, so I de­cided to get my cam­era and some mates to­gether to make a movie my­self… I think it’s a mas­ter­piece, of course.”
