Your farm as a film set

A rustic outlook, quaint cottage, run-down wool shed, livestock, forest or green fields. These are just some of the numerous places and topics being filmed that location scouts are drawn to. Have you considered a sideline income from hosting a film shoot, what is involved and whether you can stomach someone else calling the shots?

On the back of a recent feature film shot locally, Dr Emma Bugden, Whanganui & Partners – Strategic Lead for Creative Industry and Arts, and Manager of Film Whanganui, will explain the burgeoning film industry in New Zealand and opportunities for those wanting to learn more about the development of this sector in Whanganui.

‍Flower Power – Floriculture

Everyone enjoys flowers. Growing flowers and foliage can be a way of incrementally building a business towards a commercially viable primary industry. It is a lot of work, which can result in good reward, however, the trick is to grow the right crop, supplied at the right time.

Senior Business Managers from United Flower Growers, talk about the NZ landscape; the art of bringing cut-flower producers and consumers together through bridging the gap between floral demand and production.
