NEW ZEALAND SET TO STAR ON SILVER SCREEN


New Zealand will be the star of a new project that’s offering aspiring film-makers the chance to get their work in front of director Peter Jackson.


Launched in Wellington today, Tourism New Zealand’s 100% Pure New Zealand ‘Your Big Break’ competition will see five budding film-makers direct and produce their own three-minute short films on location in New Zealand .


The finalists will be flown to New Zealand by Tourism New Zealand, where they will work with The Lord of the Rings producer Barrie Osborne and Wellington ’s Park Road Post Production facility.



The winning film will be selected by Peter Jackson, who will personally view the final five entries.



“Your Big Break’ is asking people to capture the essence of 100% Pure New Zealand and tell the world their story of how they see the youngest country on earth,” Tourism New Zealand Chief Executive George Hickton said.
