Announcing successful applicants for Vendetta/SPP feature film development

Posted on 11/9/2016 by Vendetta Admin

Vendetta Productions and South Pacific Pictures are delighted to announce they’ve chosen the following successful applicants from the 170 creators who sent in ideas in response to the callout for dramatic/comedy feature films.

The successful creators are:

Steven Page

Harry Watson

Miriam McCaleb

Tom Sainsbury & Chris Parker


Rachel Jean, SPP’s Head of Development stated: “We were pleased to receive so many great ideas from all over New Zealand.  After much debate, we’ve chosen 4 ideas which each stood out as having a succinct premise, entertaining characters, and huge potential for comedy – the main ingredients we think are required to attract our target of older audiences 55 plus and females aged 35-54.”

Initial development will involve workshopping the ideas with the creators in a group setting under the guidance of Vendetta General Manager Jill Macnab, and SPP CEO Kelly Martin and Head of Development Rachel Jean.  The seed fund will be used to support each creator to further develop their idea with a view to it being optioned and becoming part of Vendetta/SPP’s active development slate.

We would like to thank all the applicants who applied.
