What does good development look like?

What does good development look like?



Join us this month at the Academy Cinema for an in-depth discussion on what makes effective feature film development. How do we know if a development process is making a project stronger, and what do we do if it’s not? Unique voice is prized, yet are we taking the creative risks necessary to craft work that stands out?

We bring together a panel to share their views formed over a range of projects and development cultures.

Join development executive Emily Anderton, US writer/director Jake Mahaffy, producer Philippa Campbell and story consultant Brita McVeigh as they talk to editor Cushla Dillon about the development process, and whether or not we are truly fostering creativity.

Stay afterwards for a slice of pizza on us and a drink.

Tues 29 April, 7pm drinks, 7:30-8:30 talk, *Academy Cinema, Central Library Building, 44 Lorne Street, Auckland.
*Change of venue this month due to the Comedy Festival
