At the start of 2017 Sydney Opera House ran a competition for secondary school students in NSW to submit ideas to be made into short films. The three winners, Zack Lewin, Anna de Lange and Mollie Burton, were choosen by a panel of industry judges. The winners were assigned professional mentors invited to attended a series of filmmaking masterclasses and given a budget to realise their creative vision.
The gallery below shows some highlights from a recent masterclass and the filming of Signs of Friendship a short film by Mollie Burton.
Thanks to Brosis, 90 Seconds Video and Goodchat TV for their production asistance on these projects.
Australia’s colonial past and refugee policies are put on trial in this powerful piece of political theatre. Direct from a sold-out season at Sydney Festival 2018, Tribunal is a compelling work not to be missed.
