With limited resources we are hoping to raise $2000 to help to create four world-class short films.

We are actors in our third and final year of training at Unitec studying towards a Bachelor of Performing and Screen Arts majoring in acting. As our final film project at Unitec we have been given the challenge as a class to create four short films. 

This project is entirely driven by members in our class. We have developed and written four very different short films over the past 4 months and are now in the process of pre-production. The films will be directed, crewed and acted in by members of our class.

This project will widen and enhance our skills as emerging artists before we graduate to embark on careers in the New Zealand film and television industry.

With your help you will give us the opportunity to make good short films into GREAT short films.
