From Bay of Plenty Film

Last year we had a very successful young filmmaker’s workshop in Tauranga in preparation for the
inaugural 2017 NZ Regionals of the International Youth Silent Film Festival. This year we are expanding
it, so that students from the wider Bay of Plenty get the opportunity to make a silent film with other
students at the workshop, which will set them up to then create their own film to enter into the IYSFF
NZ Regionals 2018.
This Workshop will take you from the beginning of the film making process right to the end…you will
collaborate through job sharing processes and together you will make a silent film.

Day One (Tues 17th July)
Writing and prepping for your silent film

– An interactive day on scriptwriting. Shaping your own
script to the IYSFF musical tracks and a classic 3 act
film structure.
– Casting, rehearsing actors, sourcing props and
planning your shoot. The tutors will run through the
preparations for the silent film in which the students
will work on the following day.

Day Two (Wed 18th July)

Learning on the job – shooting a short film

– Shooting the film. The students will be guided by the
tutors and shoot the silent film, taking turns to direct,
shoot, act and in the art department.

Day Three (Thurs 19th July)

Editing – putting the jigsaw puzzle together

-There are 3 films you make. The film you write, and the
film you edit. You will learn how to edit along side
experienced professional editors. At the end of the day
we will screen the final film for family.
