Film scripts sought

Otago Daily Times - - Dunedin -

THE Short Film Otago Trust has launched a call for scripts, and an­nounced $10,000 of fund­ing for as­pir­ing writ­ers.

The trust sup­ports screen­drama in Otago by en­cour­ag­ing writ­ers to de­velop short film scripts.

The best are guided through a script edit­ing process, and two or three are se­lected each year for pro­duc­tion.

Trust chair­man Al­lan Bad­dock said Otago was ‘‘woe­fully un­der­rep­re­sented’’ in the na­tional screen in­dus­try.

The round closes on Oc­to­ber 1.
