Film-mak­ing lessons for Gi­ga­town hope­fuls

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Chil­dren from 10 schools cre­ated short films last month to sup­port Porirua’s Gi­ga­town bid.

Ad­ven­ture School, Aotea Col­lege, Ti­tahi Bay School, Ti­tahi Bay Intermediate, Ngati Toa School, Rangikura School, St Pius X School, Windley School, Bishop Viard Col­lege and Pukerua Bay School rep­re­sented Porirua at a work­shop or­gan­ised by Porirua deputy mayor ’Ana Cof­fey.

Andrew Strugnell, who has achieved ac­claim re­cently be­cause of his idea of bring­ing Ki­wis to­gether via YouTube, was on hand to give ad­vice.

The process of film-mak­ing from pre-pro­duc­tion all the way through to post-pro­duc­tion was cov­ered.

‘‘The fo­cus of the work­shop was to fa­cil­i­tate en­tries into the Schools Video Com­pe­ti­tion be­ing run as part of the Gi­ga­town com­pe­ti­tion,’’ Cof­fey said.

‘‘Schools get the chance to win great prizes, and their video en­tries earn points for our Gi­ga­town cam­paign.’’

Porirua is cur­rently the top-placed North Is­land town, and sixth over­all, on the Gi­ga­town leader­board, but needs a big points boost to reach the fi­nals stage in Septem­ber.
