FIRST ENCOUNTERS: 5th edition of THE BIG SCREEN SYMPOSIUM 2017: Theme of Authenticity and PretenSe in Auckland, New Zealand by Michael Lim
Script to Screen and J&A Productions organised THE BIG SCREEN SYMPOSIUM 2017 with the theme of Authenticity and Pretense over the weekend of 29 September and 1st October in Auckland, New Zealand. Attendees were the creme de la creme of the New Zealand film and TV industry and as well as emerging filmmakers. The highlights for me included the screenwriter of LION, Australian-born Luke Davies and creator of BBCTV’s LUTHER, Neil Cross. The small close-up last session I attended was by HUNT OF THE WILDERPEOPLE producer Carthew Neil who made participants share their 5 most important relationships with producer as voted by us as writers, directors, financier and distributors among other. Other sessions were excellent as well.
