We are independent filmmakers looking to talk to collaborators for a short film.

The right collaborator will create a spoken word poem that will become part of a 2-3 minute film that employs symbolism and cinematic metaphor, filmed within a building(s) that has a history of incarceration and trauma. 

 We’re looking at locations such as former mental health institutions or corrections facilities so an interest or experience with mental health and/or incarceration would be helpful.  

The film will be hosted online for free to a broad audience in New Zealand and potentially receive wide viewership internationally. 

We’re looking to work with someone:

  • To create a spoken word poem that speaks powerfully but sensitively of incarceration and of the journey from illness to health
  • Who is a confident performer of their work in front of a camera
  • Who feels strongly about the subject of mental health or incarceration 
  • Who preferably lives in Auckland. 

If this sounds like you, please get in touch. We’d love to see videos of your previous work too so please send these along.
