A group of young filmmakers at Corrugated Iron have developed a script for a short film At Our Fingertips* exploring the impact of cyberbullying on young people in the NT. The script was co-developed with writer Mary Anne Butler, and is about a teenage boy who, after breaking up with his girlfriend at school, starts receiving taunting texts and online pranks. What starts as a joke escalates to a situation no one could have imagined. The film will be directed by Gail Evans.
Corrugated Iron is now looking to cast for the film, which will be shot over the weekend of 17th – 18 th March and two afternoon/evening sessions the following week. We are also looking for a technical crew made of up of young filmmakers to assist the production crew in a number of areas.
