Courtney graduated in May and is working in the screen industry. Massey is partnering with TVNZ again this year to enable talented students like Courtney to work with real-world clients.
Kim Harrop, TVNZ scripted commissioner and commissioner for HEIHEI, says the partnership with Massey University is about discovering Aotearoa’s next generation of storytellers and supporting them on their content creation journey.
“Producing a TV series is no mean feat – especially when it comes to 3D animation. We were blown away by Courtney’s dedication to her work last year, the quality of her work and the savvy way she took her project from concept through to successfully selling it in a very competitive marketplace.
“Including Kiwis Can Fly in the HEIHEI line up was an absolute no-brainer for us. We’re enjoying mentoring this years’ crop of Massey talent, and are encouraged by several of the projects we’ve seen so far,” she says.
