Roxy5 Short Film Success

Two WHS films were shown at the Roxy Cinema as part of the Roxy5 Short Film Competition.  Both entries were of an outstanding quality.

Seventeen entries from 124 students from 14 schools and college’s in the Wellington region were submitted. The entrants had 14 weeks to produce a five minute film wroxyith the theme ‘Kiwi As,’ telling their story with three essential New Zealand elements; the inclusion of a chocolate fish, the phrase ‘yeah, nah, yeah,’ and the use of a koru. The Roxy5 Film Competition 2016 gives out four awards including the Supreme Winner, two Runner-Up awards and the People’s Choice award.

Finn Culver’s Year 9 crew of Bodhi, Grace, Leo, Amelia, Nadia and Zoe produced a film about a lonely zombie in search of an accepting school.  A brillant, creative tale that was full of laughter and gore.

Molly Doyle’s team of Elianta Jaillet, Lola Bieringa and Ben Pickering created a beautifully shot film of innocence and adventure.  Their film entitled “A fishy tale” won the  Runner Up spot earning $1,000 and a professional treatment of the film.
