Last Saturday, our director, Louise Tu’u, worked alongside three other directors, Aidee Walker, Ghazaleh Golbaksh and Ellen Jones-Poole, discussing performance direction with director Michael Duignan (Go Girls, Filthy Rich, The Blue Rose) in the first ever Rehearsal and Performance workshop.
These four directors worked with two actors at a time and shot their performances, reviewing and discussing the elements of relaxation, relating and objectives. A lot of fun, discoveries and connection was had.

Thank you to the Directors and Editors Guild, Actors Equity and the New Zealand Film Commission for making this happen.
Keep an eye out and apply the next time this great and free opportunity comes up.
