“Home Educated sisters have written, produced, filmed, directed and edited this movie. If you’re in the BOP pop on down tonight and check it out.”
People gathering at Mount Drury tomorrow for a Night Owl Cinema screening of The Lion King will be treated to the debut of a short film created by a Tauranga 16-year-old.
Implications of Imagination is the directional debut short film from teen photographer and film maker Rose McMahon. Rose is the founder of photography business Little Miss Rose.
The film features NZ’s Got Talent finalist Fletcher Oxford as one of the main stars and explores the relationship between Oliver, a teenage boy, and his much younger sister Maggie (played by Daria Galey) and possibly one or two fairies.
The film will be screen at Mount Drury from 8pm tomorrow night.
Rose said the goal of the film was to encourage people of all ages to dream a little. To let themselves imagine what might be possible and believe in themselves.
The movie was filmed in one day on an almost zero budget with a cast and crew of volunteers.
”Seeing the film on the big screen in front of a big crowd will make all the hard work and effort worthwhile. And [it] will be a thrill for all the cast and crew,” Rose said.
The crew involved included scriptwriters, camera operators, sound technicians, drone operators, film production people, hair and makeup artists and casting agents.
Rose said the film showcased ”just how talented people in the film community in the Bay of Plenty is, with so many incredible and capable people”.
Fletcher will also perform a song he has written, inspired by the movie. Other performers include Seth Rackman and the Hitmen Fuse Bucket Drummers.
Street Food Union food trucks will also be available.
The movie is awaiting classification but is expected to be family friendly.
The event is open to the public from 6pm and a gold coin donation to attend. The movie is expected to screen at 8pm.
