A 20-year-old university student with no experi- ence is making his mark in the film industry while campaigning for a healthier environment. AUT graphic design student Matthew Dow- dle made a film as part of a university assignment. The brief for the project was to promote sustain- ability. The former Pakuranga student says he is passionate about the environment but as the older brother of Unmask Palm Oil activist Ben Dowdle, 17, he really has no choice'' but to be. Matthew says his motivation was to create a simple film that easily conveyed to viewers the importance of unmask- ing palm oil. I had a lot of help from the tutors at AUT. They really pushed us to take risks.'' Three hours of filming in Howick, two days of editing later and Mat- thew had a five-minute film. Ben suggested his brother enter the movie in the Outlook for Some- body competition. Matthew refined the work, shortened it to one minute and entered the competition. The sustainability film challenge is for young people aged from 7 to 24 from all over New Zea- land. The films tackle sub- jects ranging from cli- mate change and recy- cling to sustainability of language and culture. A team of judges with media, education, gov- ernment and business backgrounds selected the 20 winners from 191 entries. Matthew and his film were recognised in the top 20. Unitec senior lecturer in performing and screen arts Scott Wilson spoke on behalf of the team of judges. These films represent the emergence of a vital new voice in media pro- duction -- young, literate, articulate and ethical. The film-makers are committed, energetic and driven. They are exactly the voices our society needs and they speak loudly to the con- cerns we all face,'' Mr Wilson says. Now in its sixth year, The Outlook for Some- day challenge is to make a short sustainability- related film. It can be any genre, filmed with any camera and up to five minutes' long. Last year The Outlook for Someday was recogn- ised as a project of the United Nations Decade of Education for Sustain- able Development. Matt says he learnt through the challenge there are heaps of really talented people out there''. Change is hard to come about, especially in this day and age but I have realised the power of film with the introduc- tion of YouTube.''
