The first of Tauihu Shorts projects is completed, with the Premiere Shorts film INORGANIC,helmed by Maria Elena Doyle headed to international festivals worldwide courtesy of the New Zealand Film Commission.
INORGANIC is a wickedly funny film reflecting the distorted values of a throw-away society; today is the inorganic rubbish collection and Sam has something extra for the pile …
INORGANIC was shot in 2011, with post production completed in the first half of 2012. Heavy in visual effects, INORGANIC played to Elena’s skill and passion for vfx in what was her first dramatic narrative film.
