strength in numbers
Compton School has partnered with New Zealand’s Script to Screen to deliver its first course, Strength in Numbers. The course will be delivered in a series of 4 two-day workshops beginning in Auckland on June 7-8.
Led by Esther Cahill-Chiaroni, Script to Screen runs a number of highly regarded filmmaker development initiatives including New Zealand’s premiere film event, the annual Big Screen Symposium.
Strength in Numbers will bring together some of New Zealand’s most talented filmmakers, among them producers Ainsley Gardiner (Boy, Eagle vs Shark), Carthew Neal (Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Tickled), Tom Hern (The Dark Horse), and writer/ director Florian Habicht (Love Story).
Esther Cahill-Chiaroni: ‘Script to Screen is thrilled to be working with David Court and Compton School strengthening ties between the two countries. This programme will foster crucial discussion within New Zealand’s filmmaking community about how to build sustainable creative businesses.’
David Court: ‘Compton works with creative professionals to deliver teaching that moves the needle and help people reach their goals. We’re delighted to be working with Esther and this remarkable group of filmmakers.’
