Budding Year 9 and 10 Filmmakers


KWN is a hands-on film education programme created to encourage Year 9 and 10 students to develop their cognitive, communication and organisational skills, through the use of Panasonic’s latest HD Video and DVD technology.

Students are invited to create and develop an idea for a short documentary film based on one of two themes.

Theme 1: Communication 
Theme 2:Ecology.

The entries are to be submitted first on ‘storyboards’ provided by Panasonic.

Those 10 schools will be awarded with the latest Panasonic HD Camera equipment in order to develop their idea into a 5 minute DVD. Top 10 storyboards in the country will then be selected.

The Top 10 schools that are selected will be provided with optional coaching and assistance from an industry professional.

Schools that are not selected can still submit their video entry using their own equipment.

The top overall film winners will be awarded an overseas trip for two students and one teacher to the KWN  Asia/Oceania regional awards
