Following on from last night’s seminar on High Concept films for Screen Tasmania, I had three mentoring sessions today with the next wave of talented, local filmmakers. Selected by Screen Tasmania’s Development Manager, Even Maloney I gave career advice to the filmmaking teams of:
• Rebecca Thomson (writer/director) and Rogan Brown (producer) who are turning their short film CUPCAKE: A ZOMBIE LESBIAN MUSICAL into a feature film.
• Sam Curtin (director) and Benjamin Clark (writer/producer) who are taking horror and gore to the next level in their independent feature, BLOOD HUNT.
• I also met screenwriter Daniel Weavell whose idea for a webseries about the avatars inside our computers having lives of their own, A RENDERED LIFE, garnered him seed development funding from Screen Tasmania.
Three new voices we need to watch out for.
