Our School is made up of four separate programmes, but there are close links between them, for the four disciplines share a common focus on the creation, production and interpretation of texts, whether written, spoken, theatrical, cinematic, televised, or electronic.
The Night Watchman was shot as part of the "Shoot on Film Course" run through Victoria University of Wellington's Continuing Education Programme and the Film Programme. The course gave 12 students the opportunity to learn about working with 16mm film. Over 12 weeks the students learned how to load and operate an Ari S16 camera under the experience eye of Alex Funke.
The course culminated with a weekend shoot of a script featuring 12 scenes (one for each student) and the result was "The Night Watchman".
