Inspiring Stories is an innovative new national project that aims to spark a series of inspirational short film productions by connecting up young filmmakers with young Kiwi's making a difference. From March to July we're convening a series of two-day intensive workshops for young Kiwi's aged 13-26. The workshops are being held in every region, and focus on effective storytelling and documentary filmmaking. Participants learn core skills through a range of exercises, and develop a project of which they then go on over an 8-week period beyond the workshop to produce a short 2-4 minute film about an inspirational young person in their community.
