Peter Jackson and Barrie Osbourne are partnering with Tourism
New Zealand to sponsor Your Big Break a new project that offers
aspiring film-makers the chance to create an original, short-
film
under the direction of the Academy Award-winning team
responsible for The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

I'd love for you to share this opportunity with your students.
I have attached a flier and provided more details below. Feel
free to post the fliers and/or send this information to your
students via e-mail. Please let me know if you have questions
or would like more information!

Best,
Meg Wheeler

The Your Big Break finalists will shoot and direct their own
short films on location in New Zealand, with the assistance of
The Lord of the Rings executive producer Barrie Osborne and
world class post-production facility Park Road Post. The five
finalists will then have their completed films personally
viewed and judged by Peter Jackson.
Visit www.your-big-break.com to get advice and insights from
Peter Jackson and Barrie Osborne, and download the competition
brief. Submissions and voting will open on Dec. 9, 2009.
To enter the first round of the competition, aspiring directors
must submit a screenplay and any supporting content they think
will help their selection for the New Zealand shoot.
The screenplay must be for a three-minute short film that
captures the spirit of New Zealand. Members of the public can
vote for the ?People?s Choice? finalist ? and four further
finalists will be chosen by an expert panel including Barrie
Osborne.
