The Fickle Crowd is a short documentary observing the upcoming
general elections in NZ and the role youth will play in it.
This documentary will be directed by Leroy Martin and produced
by Callum Pumfleet, third year students at AUT majoring in screen
production. The Fickle Crowd is our final production - one we will
need to put a lot of work into in order to get produced.
Unfortunately, this means we will need some funding to get our
documentary up and running. Any donations we get will go towards
funding for locations, feeding the crew, event fees, travel, and
other potential expenses.
Our project is important to us because we are the target
audience - it is a story being told for us, by us - we understand
the 'fickle crowd' experience more than anybody else because we are
living it. We are aware of how many of us are silenced, apathetic
and unsure about the political system. We are giving youth a
platform to discuss and relate, to get to the bottom of why we have
such a low statistic, what we can do and how we can change the
In terms of style, we will be taking a non bias and naturalistic
approach - inspired by films that focus on raw human emotions. We
will have an original electronic score by a young and upcoming
local musician. Overall, we hope to convey a real, affecting take
on short documentary, that is both informative and interesting.
