About this Event

2020 Hamilton Filmmaking Workshop

Here’s a fantastic opportunity for you to learn from Bellbird writer and director Hamish Bennett.

This filmmaking workshop focuses on building your screen story around interesting, original and compelling characters. Over the course of one day, Hamish will explore character and story and how the two are intertwined. He will use clips and examples to support the learning.

Hamish will talk about how to tap into your own knowledge and experiences to build a story that is authentic and memorable. He will give you methods for making time for writing when you’re not a full-time writer – and how you can use this to your advantage.

Don’t miss this interactive and practical workshop that will help you write a script that gets noticed.

Who it is for: All levels of writing experience – emerging to established filmmakers.

ABOUT HAMISH BENNETT

Hamish Bennett is a New Zealand writer/director (Ngāti Whakaue, Patuharakeke, Ngāti Waewae) and a full-time school teacher. His first short film, The Dump, won Best Short Script at 2012’s NZ Writers Guild Awards. His second short, Ross & Beth, won numerous awards, including the Jury and Audience prizes at the 2014 New Zealand International Film Festival. Bellbird is Hamish’s first feature film. It expands on the world established in the two shorts, and was filmed in the small rural Northland community where he grew up.

Described by The Listener as ‘a perfectly tuned piece of work and a classic in the making’, Bellbird had its world premiere in competition at the 2019 Sydney International Film Festival. It has just completed a successful theatrical and festival run, most recently picking up the Best Screenplay award at the Macao International Film Festival.
