Finalists announced for youth film comp

The finalists of Auckland Council’s young filmmakers competition have been announced and their three minute flicks on Auckland’s future are up online.

A judging panel, including Councillor Michael Goudie, Bobby Nairn, Morgan Borthwick and Jee Kim revealed the finalists today:

• Matthew Canham (17 years) of Campbells Bay and Georgia Nixon (18 years) of Narrowneck
The Future – Stefan Crabbe (14 years) of Orewa, Aimee Mills (14 years) of Red Beach, Jasmine Bishop (13 years) and Yasmin Pena (14 years) of Whangaparaoa
Generation Zero – Sam Dyson (20 years) of Howick, Aymee Karaitiana (20 years), Amenda Quang (20 years) of Northpark and Ryan Mearns (19 years) of Mt Eden
Side Project – Ben Journee (24 years) of Murrays Bay and Mikayla Fairweather (22 years)
• Nathan Thomas (23 years) of Te Atatu

The five finalists’ videos can be seen on You Tube at youtube.com/aklcouncil where the public can "like" their favourite.

The video with the most views on You Tube by 31 May, when the feedback period ends, wins a $3,000 Prezzy Card. Second place will receive a $2,000 Prezzy Card and third place a $1,000 Prezzy Card.

The contest was to create a three-minute video on Auckland’s future to coincide with the release of the Council’s Unitary Plan – the rulebook that will shape the way Auckland grows.

Entrants were as young as five years old and one team of finalists is aged 13 and 14 years.

Councillor Michael Goudie says he was blown away with the high standard of the 35 entries.

“This is their future and it is encouraging to see they have such a great vision of what sort of Auckland they want in 30 years’ time. It’s definitely in line with Auckland becoming the world’s most liveable city.”
