True Love by Kaz von Heraud-Parker

Hi all.

A quick note to pass on some info about a short movie made here in Wanaka with "A Romantic Proposal" as it's theme.
Kaz & Jane have submitted their short for a competition to win a gazillion airmiles (ok that's a bit of an exaggeration ) to travel in luxury around the world!
Who wouldn't like that?

Well they did the hard yards and now all they need is some help from you!

Here is the link to the comp

It would be awesome if you could take the time to visit the link above and then follow these steps

1. Scroll down to the movies and click More Videos

2. Click on the movie "True Love" by Kaz von Heraud-Parker

3. Scroll back up and click the like button & write a fabulously romantic comment.

4. Paste this to your Face book page


Perhaps if we are good, they will take us with them!

Thanks folks - it'll just take a couple of moments of your time.

Best of luck you romantic devils , you!

Great Night at "Flicks To Fix Christchurch" $$ Raised!

Hi folks,
Well, we had an excellent fun filled evening on Friday at the fundraiser for the Christchurch Earthquake Appeal.
A hugh thanks goes out to everyone who turned out for the screening.
You are a great lot , no mistake!

Just tallied up the total donation and I'm proud to announce that the generous friends of the Wanaka Film Trust put their hands in their pockets to the tune of $640. That's excellent and inspiring!
Thank you all so much.

I want to also take this opportunity to thank again, the very,very, generous filmmakers who were so kind as to donate their films.

These guys put a lot of time and effort into making films. This may seem like a glamorous profession, but the reality is that it is a lot harder work than a lot of people think.

With this in mind , as a way of showing our gratitude, all I would ask of you is to take a moment to 
click on these links (facebook/twitter/email etc) and say hello to Ari ( Adventures Of Power) , Ian (The Other Marty) and Topher (The Attackmen) and see some of their other work.

I think that each of these talented film makers will continue to be making excellent projects in the future
and we are privileged to have seen some of their early work .

I would also like to thank the Paradiso cinema for , yet again , being beyond generous with their hospitality and friendliness. 

Thanks also to Arielle Zadok , Sorted Printing , Anthony Mackey of and everyone who helped publicize and promote the fundraising evening .

Cheers Folks
