Tena koe. Ko Pene taku ingoa. Greetings. my name is Pene. I am an independent indigenous Maori film maker and I would like your awhi me tautoko (help and support) to make my first feature film called Authenticity, which is a character driven script that revolves around a brutal crime and the personal odysseys of the four unique characters who are inextricably linked to it.
I have made two professional short films, my latest one being A Dignified Life. As such, I am ready to take the next step and write, produce, direct and edit my first professional feature film.
The main aspect of the film I need financial support with right now is my script. I applied to the Film Commission for funding to complete the script, but they turned me down (as per usual). And because I make my living selling my DVD's (of my short films and docos') door to door, I do not have the time to focus on the completion of the script. I can complete the script in one month as that is simply the way I write...EXTREMELY FAST. And because I already have a completed rough draft to work on, it is entirely feasible for me to complete it in the timeframe stipulated (it only took me 9 days to write the 1st rough draft of 96 pages) so it is a viable working script. I have my own ancestral land, which is ideal for total focus and concentration. Then once the script is completed, I will then set about raising the required finances and/or in-kind sponsorship to make it into a feature film.
