NOTHING MUCH TO DO (2014)
Nothing Much To Do was inspired by Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing. It is set in a New Zealand High School and the story is told by teenage vloggers. Their vlogs echo Shakespeare’s use of soliloquy, where the actor talk directly to the audience.
The Candle Wasters spent 2013 writing the series; then cast, filmed, and began editing together in Auckland over their three-month summer break in early 2014. Like most amateur filmmakers, they begged and borrowed, with a cast and crew of 19 people working for love.
