The NZFC And The Wicked Children

Nov 6th, 2005
Headstrong Films Press Release

Once upon a time there was a spooky
Film Commission in a far far away land.
The Commission, some say foolishly;
decided to let three wicked children make
four magical films for them. They were told
the films had to be peaceful and pure
of heart. Unfortunately the three naughty
children had other plans.

Headstrong Films has been contracted to develop four HD features for the New Zealand Film Commission. The team has been busy all year meeting with writers, directors and producers.

Headstrong wishes to thank everyone who sent scripts in for our second round. Once again the team was overwhelmed by the sheer volume and it (obviously) took us longer to read all the scripts than expected. So apologies to all. You've been very patient with us and we appreciate it.

The first round drew an enormous response, eventually garnering 140 scripts which were narrowed down to six projects by the team. The latest round brought an additional 70 new scripts, four of which have been targeted for development.

The Headstrong team were very encouraged by the diversity and originality on display and feel that the next great New Zealand pic lies within their slate.

We are proud to announce four additional projects to the overall slate.

In The Streets You Hold
Wri: Michael Kerby

Necrosis
Wri: James O’Sullivan

Song of Good
Wri/dir: Greg King
Prod: Mark Foster

What We Do In The Shadows
Wri/Dir: Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi

These join the projects from the first round that are in development.

Blackwood Cabin
Wri/Dir Mark Prebble
Prod: Johnny Givens, Livingstone Productions

My Linoleum Dream
Wri/Dir: Belinda Schmid
Prod: Rachel Gardiner

The Devil Dared Me To
Wri: Matt Heath, Chris Stapp
Prod: Video Nasties

A Japanese Werewolf in Auckland
Wri: D.F Mamea
Prod: Buto Base

The Void
Wri: Gary Davies
Prod: Vicky Pope, Pop Films

Midnight Golfer
Wri: Luke Hedley and Christopher Nicholls

From the ten projects on their slate, Headstrong are looking toward to greenlighting the first two projects before Santa comes.

The three wicked children made plans
to travel to the scary NZFC to seek the
mysterious green light, for without it
their journey will all be for naught.

Our fairly good tale continues....

Gustav Mahler’s Seventh Symphony may be one of the least well-known of its ilk, but Edo de Waart and the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra made a compelling case for a reassessment. They showed us a work of immense variety, surprising contrast and delicate shades of light and dark. More>>
