Haere mai!

Information Session #2 on the Film and Animation: New Zealand Summer 2012 Program will take place this week on Thursday, December 15 at 5pm in 7B-A145 (School of Film and Animation).

If you missed the first NZ info session, you will want to attend this second info session to catch up on basic information.

For those of you who attended the first session, you will also want to attend this next meeting: There will be new information that is intended to guide you through the process ahead and answer any questions that you may have on a number of topics. We will look at some of the forms you must fill out, as well as outline the application procedure. Soon you will be making a commitment to participate on this program (first deposit of $250 will be due in January), so please come to the meeting and be counted in.

We will talk about the workshops and seminars offered for this 6 credit RIT course. We will also discuss special activities, like the ‘marae’ at the Te Noho Kotahitanga that will give you a hands-on experience with Maori indigenous culture, customs, and language. The Film and Animation: New Zealand program will take place at Unitec, Institute of Technology in Auckland, New Zealand. The faculty and students at Unitec look forward to introducing you to New Zealand — its culture and peoples, colonialism in the South Pacific, the history of New Zealand film, and the profound geography and landscapes of their homeland.

Haere ra!
