Short disaster movies big on creativity

A judging panel has awarded Takapau School 1st and 3rd place from the 17 movies entered in this year’s Hawke’s Bay Civil Defence Emergency Management (CDEM) Group’s Shortest Ever Disaster Movie competition, promoting the Civil Defence message of “preparedness”.

‘Drop, Cover, Hold’ was the winning entry from Takapau Primary School, with ‘Swallowed by the Sea’ winning 3rd place for the talented school. ‘Tsunami Rap’ was an innovative entry from Havelock North Intermediate, which took 2nd place.

The competition runs every two years, and this year’s number of entries was a big step up from the 7 films entered in 2011.

Hawke’s Bay CDEM Group Manager Ian Macdonald was impressed with the quality and variety of this year’s entries, saying “It’s a good reflection on the schools that enter. These movies show off the creative talent of the students and staff, sometimes involving the whole school and community.”

Ian added, “This is a fun way to learn about and promote the “preparedness” message, not forgetting the work which goes into writing, planning, filming and editing a movie.”

Other schools that took part this year were Taradale High School, Napier Girls’ High School, Tamatea Intermediate, Waipawa Primary School and Omakere School.

For their good work, Takapau School takes away a new BBQ, a wind-up multi-function torch for all movie participants and a flip camera for the school. Havelock Intermediate win a video camera and tripod for their school.

The winning movies will also be aired TV Hawke’s Bay, and are available on YouTube:
Takapau School: Drop, Cover, Hold
Havelock Intermediate: Tsunami Rap
Takapau School: Swallowed by the Sea
