We’re in for a treat at the next KCPS meeting (7:30 pm Monday 25 February
March at OBC) with a talk by Nick Ward about “Creating a Story in Your Images”.
Nick Ward broke into feature screenwriting with pool comedy Stickmen. An instant Kiwi hit, Stickmen won Ward a 2001 NZ Film Award for best script.
He went on to originate and co-write the hit romance Second-Hand Wedding, and reconvened with Wedding director Paul Murphy for 2011 follow-up Love Birds. Ward has also penned episodes of TV series Outrageous Fortune and Burying Brian, and horror flick The Ferryman.
Should be great!
Check out this post from the PSNZ blog about lots of deadlines coming up. In particular:
- Take advantage of early bird pricing and register by 28 February for the PSNZ National Convention in Wellington
- NATEX entries are due in by 6 March
And of course entries for our own KCPS summer salon need to be in by Monday 11 March – use the online submission system, and bring any prints along to the meeting that night.
Our first meeting for the year will be at 7:30 pm on Monday 11 February at the usual venue, the Otaihanga Boating Club. The featured speaker will be our vice President, Alison Viskovic APSNZ, who will give a presentation entitled “A Photographic Autobiography”.
Alison did very well in the recent Dunedin Festival of Photography, receiving honours for her image shown here – “Illusion No 5”. It will be good to see more of her work.
We’ll also be seeking people to help out with the PSNZ National Exhibition of Photography (NATEX) which KCPS is running this year. Don’t forget to get your own entries in (that’s fine) – see details at kcps.org.nz/natex2013.
If you were considering going for PSNZ Honours, now is the time as well. See details about Honours on the PSNZ blog.
Finally, the PSNZ National Convention this year is as close as it can get – down in Wellington. There’s lots of information at http://positivelyphotography.org.nz – check it out and consider registering for what is always a fantastic experience. Early bird pricing is available until the end of February.
