About three years ago, I worked on a movie back in New Zealand. It was my first (and thus far only) feature film that I’ve worked on that has been completed.
It was really really popular in NZ, but due to the vagaries of film distribution, it hasn’t been available anywhere else yet.
However, in February, there’ll be a New Zealand Film Festival showing in New York! It’s called “2001: A New Zealand Film Odyssey” (groan) and amongst some of the more well known and older NZ movies, will be the one that I worked on.
I’m a storyboard artist, and so I had a minor, yet creative, input into the movie as it was being developed. It was great to see some of my ideas realised in the final film, and very cool to see what I drew come to life.
The movie itself is called Scarfies (pronounced “skar-fees”) and is kind of a Shallow Grave style dark comedy about University Students, set in my home town. I would be ever so happy if someone in the NY area gets a chance to see it, and tells me what they thought!
The Festival is:
2001: A New Zealand Film Odyssey
Feb 7 - 13 2001, somewhere in New York
Hope someone goes to see it! Thanky.
