Last Night Productions calls for Kiwi Shorts.
Takes - Short Film Festival is kicking off an all new season starting this month at Kingsland’s Nectar Bar and it’s hungry for Kiwi blood. Well, Kiwi films at least.
The boutique film festival is an initiative started in London by Kiwi’s Jessica Joy Wood and Carl Dixon, and moved to Auckland in 2011. The evening showcases short films from around the globe and this time round they want to add some great local films to the line up. The next offering of spectacular international short films will take place on June 28th from 7:30pm. Every month audiences can enjoy two hours of short and sharp flicks, each introduced by Jessica, while relaxing in comfortable couches and enjoying table service from the bar staff.
Jessica and Carl, started Takes while living in London on a whim and after its success over there, decided to bring it home to New Zealand on their return.
Jessica and Carl are seeking submissions by New Zealand short film makers – “Kiwis really know how to make a great short, there is a great combination of grittiness and humour that I love, and we just don't see enough of them.” Jess says.
The criteria? “We screen films that stretch the audience to see the world from a different perspective. Make us laugh, cry, see something for the first time, or see something old in a new way, make us care. But really, we just want great films!”
Carl adds “So many great short films sit gathering dust on a shelf or hidden away in a drawer, we want to provide a platform for these films to do what they’re supposed to – be seen!”
Jess and Carl started Last Night Productions - a film, television and theatre production company, as a vehicle for their own creative work while living in London.
They have been working as producers, actors, writers, editors and directors since.
In 2010 Jess and Carl returned to New Zealand where along with Takes they are developing two television series. Jess can be seen playing the role of Tracey O in Super City, and Sione’s 2: Unfinished Business. Carl is best known for his portrayal of the lead role of Ben Wilson/Captain X in Amazing Extraordinary Friends just finished appearing in Calendar Girls at The Court Theatre in Christchurch.
