PUNCH: COMING HOME
Promoting a one-off event at the Regent Theatre around the screening of the film Punch and featuring Te Awamutu born writer, designer and director Dr. Welby Inges’ preparatory sketches for the film.
“The rough sketches in pencil, ink and coffee granules were made either before writing the screenplay for PUNCH or in pre-production while attempting to ‘feel’ the spirit of the world the film was going to inhabit.
They were recorded in notebooks, or on old scraps of paper. In some instances they contain flickers of possibly storylines, potential dialogue or the ‘poetic spirit’ of the scene I was intending to shoot.
There are literally hundreds of such drawings that go into any film I make, because I draw the whole world of a story before I commit anything to writing. If I run into trouble while shooting, I return to drawing as a method of ‘feeling’ my way through a problem.”
The exhibition of these amazing sketches will be showing on the Front Porch Gallery 1st – 10th September 2022.
