Event description
A filmmaking workshop focused on building your script around compelling characters.

About this Event

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 compelling characters. Over the course of one day, Hamish will explore character and story and how the two are intertwined, using clips and examples to support the learning. He will talk about how to tap into your own knowledge and experiences to build a story that is authentic and memorable. 

Being a writer and holding down other responsibilities can be tricky so he will tell you his methods for writing full-time 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 experience - emerging to established filmmakers.

When: Saturday 29 August, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

Where: Te Whaea National Dance & Drama Centre (Drama 3), 11 Hutchison Road, Newton, Wellington.

Cost: General Admission $23 (incl. GST). Tickets via Eventbrite.

What to Bring: Pen and paper. Morning and afternoon tea will be provided. There are plenty of cafes in the area and there is space available to eat your lunch if you would like to bring it with you.

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.
