Vibrancy / Arts & Culture

    A Rotorua Trust grant of $70,000 has allowed the Bay of Plenty
    Film Trust to offer rare hands-on experience in senior roles for
    locals aspiring to a career in the screen industry.
    The traineeship programme, delivered on the set of a 6-part
    drama series, offered invaluable experience in roles including
    director, costume designer, art director and script supervisor,
    increasing the capability and capacity of locals in the profession.

    “Being able to offer this level of mentorship and
    experience on a major drama production has been
    invaluable for locals, many of whom have gone on to work
    on other major productions. Investing in the upskilling of
    our locals also makes Bay of Plenty a more viable option
    for future productions which benefits the whole region.”
