Oneshot Collective is a collaborative initiative to bring together filmmakers based in Wellington, New Zealand and create a feature-length anthology of short film segments based on the common theme of ‘chance meetings or encounters’.
The premise is simple: 8 directors, 8 stories, one feature-length piece. Film anthologies are a proven filmmaking model with more recent efforts including New York, I Love You, Paris Je T’aime along with genre-specific anthologies such as VHS and ABC’s of Death.
Oneshot was born out of a need for a platform to showcase the work of emerging New Zealand filmmaking talent and encourage offshore investment in content creators based here with a focus on the ongoing development of locally owned IP.
The first collaboratively made feature film project through Oneshot Collective is currently in post-production and is called “Encounters”.
