Filmmaking Course September Update

It’s time for another update as to the filmmaking course we are running. As mentioned in our last update, we have reached the end of the first phase, which was to establish the framework for the “Mad Young Bastard” film we are in the process of producing. We also wanted to ensure that this framework will enable it to merge with the one that we will be establishing for our second film “Valley of Dreams” and now that we have accomplished this goal, we decided it was time to reassess our direction.


It became obvious that some of the members of the course were either unable or not prepared to make the degree of commitment that is going to be required to make a feature film of the magnitude that we are contemplating. As a consequence, a number of them have decided to leave and we are now down to a much smaller number. Once our production manager Bethany Miller returns from her trip to Britain in a couple of weeks, we will assess the situation going forward. This will establish how many new team members we will need and how to find suitable ones that will be able to see the project through to its conclusion.


In the meantime, we completed all the paperwork that we fell behind with and have been researching the issue of cinematic aspect ratios beginning with the Cinemascope ratio introduced by the Fox Studios in 1953 and further developed by Panavision a couple of years later. This saw the first 2.35:1 widescreen films of “The Robe” and “How to Marry a Millionaire” being produced and the difficulties that arose from having so much more screen ‘real estate’ to fill up. This saw many of the techniques that had been used on the 4:3 ratio films made up until that time discarded with new concepts being introduced.


We have decided to utilise a 2.39:1 aspect ratio on both of our next two films owing to the fantastic scenery in the areas which will be filming in. We have searched and discovered a number of feature length cinema released films shot using the same high definition cameras we use, all of which have been successful in gaining numerous awards in the festivals they were entered into. The quality of the cinematography and acting was outstanding in all of them and any limitation of the camera forced the cinematographers to be innovative to get the results they did and this we see as being a good thing. <https://youtu.be/eW9rJnO9-Kw>


This filmmaking Course is being run by the MovieFest Charitable Trust whose aim is to encourage the movie makers in New Zealand and to promote and showcase the talent New Zealand has to offer.
