ScreenTest is a wrap!

Our inaugural ScreenTest film competition for high school students has a winner! We're pleased to announce the winning entry is Alone by Lachie Clark, Ella Little, Alex Booker and Joel Malcolm-Smith from Wakatipu High School in Queenstown.

The theme this year was 'coming of age' and the competition was judged by actor/director/writer Jackie van Beek. Alone won because of its "beautiful landscapes, cinematography and editing. It also had a sensitively observed and natural performance,” van Beek said.

Two members of the winning team will fly to Auckland to visit a Warner Bros. International Television Production New Zealand set.

You can watch Alone here and it features in our Coming-of-Age collection.

ScreenTest will return in 2019 with the theme of "horror". More details will be released in January.
