CHRIST'S COLLEGE FILM FESTIVAL For one night only
The 15th annual Christ’s College Film Festival on Tuesday 24 October 2017 showcased the diverse talent and creativity of College filmmakers.
With genres including animation, music video, drama, comedy, thriller, action and foreign (German) language, and themes dealing with – among other things – the rocky road to love, peer pressure, forgiveness and repentance, the possibilities of teleportation and some seriously off-the-wall comedy, there was something for everyone to enjoy. Most, but not all, contributors were Media Studies students and the festival gave them the opportunity to demonstrate what they have learned about the art of visual storytelling. HoD Media Studies Peter Hewson, while there to guide and advise, says
the students are given considerable freedom to pursue their ideas and develop their projects. “They have written scripts, learned how to use cameras, lights, microphones and digital editing technologies, as well as organised people and resources.” The three industry judges – Anne Williams of Port Hills Productions, Blair Norton the Christchurch news producer for One News, and video editor Doug Thomson – gave excellent feedback, saying they were very impressed with the high calibre of the work.
