Christchurch mockumentary wins Inspiring Film competition

Two young film makers say Generation G is all about creativity and following your passion.

James Murray, 19, and Mason Cade Packer, 18, won the Creativity and Culture award at the Inspiring Stories Film Competition.

Their film was nominated in six categories but one was revoked when the judges realised it was a mockumentary.

Murray said the film advocated creativity but stressed the mockumentary format did not get in the way of that.

Murray and Packer were awarded an extensive library of original music to use for future films.
