NZ WEB FEST AWARDS
Check out the finalists and winners of the inaugural NZ Web Fest Awards held in November.
WEB SERIES: END OF TERM
With creator Chaz Harris: I think we’ve lost sight of creating fear and suspense as a storytelling skill because we can create anything on screen now with visual effects as filmmakers we need to remember to stop and think if we should show something or not.
WEB SERIES: SIDES
With director Grae Burton: I’d rather make awesome shows with awesome people and if “big guns” want to take notice that’s great.
WEB SERIES: SHOWGIRLS
With director and producer Ben Legg: The more time and thought you can put into pre-production, the smoother the shoot is going to go. Visualise being on set, and identify issues before they happen.
WEB SERIES: AUCKWARD LOVE
With creator Holly Shervey: Working with such a small crew on such a fast timeline meant the challenges were great and the roles each person played were pushed, but that also gave us a real sense of ownership over our work.
WEB SERIES: DROPPED PIE
With co-creator Nat Boltt: Rodrigo Films prides itself on making fresh, funky content in a fast-paced guerrilla filmmaking style.
CROWDFUNDING: POT LUCK
New Zealand’s first lesbian web series is coming to the internet soon! Currently crowdfunding to make a further five episodes, Pot Luck is a fresh, fun, and sexy narrative web-series that explores the lives of three Wellington friends.
