Film workshops pave way for Māori

By Numia Ponika-Rangi

Ngā Aho Whakaari was established in 1996 as a National representative body for Māori working in film and television in NZ.

A series of film and television workshops is being run to up-skill workers of the industry, enabling them to learn new technology, and to advance future Māori films.

Today's workshop included introducing sound, editing and the latest camera technology.

According to Kim Muriwai, “This workshop is an opportunity for producers and directors to learn how camera and sound operators work and what it takes to be a skilled and successful editor.”

Improving the knowledge and skills of today's practitioners will ensure the fulfilment of the dreams of our famous predecessors who paved the way for us to follow.
