Danielle Lauder


Bachelor of Creative Media Production

Working on M.I.A as the editor, script supervisor and colourist was a fantastic opportunity. I had the privilege of making a real creative contribution to the film, while developing skills at an industry standard - along with using emerging technologies.

I strive to continue applying and extending my understanding of editing and colour across a broad variety of projects - including live action, virtual production, or a mix of both.
M.I.A is a short film set in a not-so-distant future Wellington, New Zealand. This story takes place on the night that self-driving car passenger, Kara, encounters an unexpected surprise and must fight for her freedom.

Using a combination of virtual production methods that includes 3D models, 'volumetric film-making' and photo-scanning real-world miniatures, the production of M.I.A includes use of emerging technologies, as well as traditional film-making.
