Listed by View details

Kia Ora! I am an SAE Screen Production student in my final year. I am currently producing a short film titled ‘Racket.’

Racket is a Coming of Age Drama/Comedy centred around Finley who has dropped out of college and moved back home to her small town. The only problem - all her friends and family seem to be charging on around and without her. Finley is ripped out of her rut when she befriends twelve-year-old neighbour Quinn who is on a mission to complete her summer break bucket list. The two girls form a friendship as they try to find direction and stability in their lives, but tensions rise as summer comes close to ending.

The owner of this listing has agreed to abide by local 'working with children' regulations. All minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
