Do you have a tween/teen in the house/family who would love to be mentored as they step into their ‘creative genius’, navigating the world of scriptwriting and bringing out their talents?

I AM BUZZZZIIIIINNGGG! 🐝🐝🐝 to be kicking off ‘The Movie in Me’ - a brand new program that brings together the magic of the film world and discoveries of life coaching!
There are only 10 spots available per cohort. (3 SPACES ALREADY TAKEN so get in quick!).

We’ve all got a story within us just bursting to come out - this is your child’s chance to understand the foundations needed to know themselves as a storyteller, and then create a script that speaks to their truth and vision!

This 8-week course will introduce them to simplified golden nuggets of degree-level scriptwriting processes, whilst simultaneously taking them on a journey of self-discovery wherein they will connect to themselves, their voice, their relationships, and ways of being in the world, in new, exciting ways.

There is nothing quite as rewarding as holding your story in your hand - and I’m speaking from experience having a degree in filmmaking, producing and performing in my first play at age 11, running a videography/photography business, publishing a memoir at age 24, and teaching drama/filmmaking to children through to adults.📔

For the full run-down of what these amazing eight weeks will entail, check out this link and get in touch ASAP!

Missing French teen Eloi Rolland: Friends and family still have no answers a year on

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

In 2019, French teenager Eloi Rolland arrived in New Zealand to study. He partied, got a job and made friends. But six months later he disappeared without a trace. A year on, police say “his fate remains unknown” and his case looks set to be referred to the coroner. Caroline Williams reports.

In 2019, French teenager Eloi Rolland arrived in New Zealand to study. He partied, got a job and made friends. But six months later he disappeared without a trace. A year on, police say “his fate remains unknown” and his case looks set to be referred to the coroner. Caroline Williams reports.

During his time in Auckland, Rolland went to the zoo, enjoyed nights out, worked at a popular bar, dabbled in modelling and, with friends, visited Piha on the rugged west coast.

Before his disappearance, Rolland expressed to his family that he wished to visit Piha again, and on March 6 last year, he did just that.

He has not been seen or heard from since.

“Each day we feel more and more worried and more helpless," his father Thierry Rolland tells Stuff.

Do you live near an abandoned or derelict property?

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Around the country, the demand for property continues to outstrip supply, driving record median prices even higher. In Auckland - where an average house price of over $1m has seen it ranked the fourth least-affordable city in the world - some properties sit empty and unmaintained.

Last week I reported on some of Auckland's mysterious million dollar dumps, and I'm sure there are plenty more out there. If you live near an empty, derelict property and are curious about it, I'd love to hear from you - flick me an email at caroline.williams@stuff.co.nz

Yes, I'm just around the corner from you.
I have been running my studio-based art school since 2007 for students aged between 9 to adults. I enjoy teaching drawing, painting, mixed media, and sculpture. Students can work at their own pace, on themes of their choice, and begin from their own level of ability and start any time throughout the term.
The students have been working with the theme of 'Transport' to get us all started for this term.
So hope to hear from you soon and meet you once this lockdown drops a level.
