Sustainability Film-Making Workshops

Sustainability Film-Making Workshops Available for All Young New Zealanders


This year’s series of The Outlook for Someday free sustainability film-making workshops will reach more young New Zealanders than ever.

35 one-day regional workshops will take place throughout the country between May and August, making them accessible to all young New Zealanders wherever they live. Two additional one-day workshops are planned with a focus towards Pasifika young people and five two-day workshops will be for rangatahi Māori.

The workshops are part of The Outlook for Someday film project, which supports young people to make films about the things that matter to them.

Every participant in a workshop will make a short film that screens at the end of the day. They will also come away with story ideas that are meaningful to them which they can create into further films.

Each workshop runs from 9am to 4.30pm and is open to young people from school years 7 to 13 as well as teachers and youth workers.

Spaces are limited to 25 participants per workshop.

Students, teachers and youth workers are invited to register for a workshop in their area.www.theoutlookforsomeday.net/workshops

Now in its 8th year, The Outlook for Someday is New Zealand’s sustainability film project for young people. It includes an annual film challenge and a national series of sustainability film-making workshops. 1089 young people participated in the film challenge and workshops in 2013.

“The objective of The Outlook for Someday is to help empower young people as storytellers of significance,” said David Jacobs, Director of Connected Media, the charitable trust which runs the project.

“Young people lead the rest of society as digital natives. The workshops and film challenge encourage them to use their skills and develop their own distinctive voice as storytellers. We don’t just see young film-makers as creating products. We seem them as culture builders.”

The Outlook for Someday film challenge asks young people aged up to 24 to make a short sustainability-related film of any genre, filmed with any camera and any length up to 5 minutes. The entry deadline in 2014 is 12 September.

At the end of the year The Someday Awards red-carpet ceremony will take place for the fourth year running at the Aotea Centre in Auckland.

Howard Davis: Never Too Old To Rock & Roll - Jethro Tull

As Greil Marcus recently observed in an NYRB review of Robbie Robertson's autobiographical Testimony, in rock and roll there is always an origin story. In the case of Jethro Tull founder Ian Anderson, he claims to have been influenced by his father's big band and jazz record collections and the emergence of rock music in the 1950s, but became disenchanted with the "show biz" style of early US stars like Elvis Presley...

Howard Davis Review: The Contemporary Relevance Of Denial

Denial has all the hallmarks of a riveting courtroom drama. Based on a 1996 British libel case that author David Irving brought against Lipstadt, the movie has been criticized as flat and stagey, but it nonetheless conveys a visceral clarity of vision and sense of overwhelming urgency. More>>
