This guide is for NZCS full members who are applying for NZCS accreditation and explains what you have to do to complete the application.
For details of eligibility and the body of work required see NZCS Accreditation Overview
You should enter a wide range of your best work, so that your submission truly reflects the breadth of your range and skill across a variety of challenges. The application form offers an brief opportunity to highlight any particular challenges, or other aspects of the production you wish to draw to the committee’s attention.
The following supporting documents should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
- A spreadsheet template listing productions or Application form.PDF
- A full and up to date CV in PDF format
- A showreel demonstrating the range of your body of work. This reel can be up to 10 minutes in duration or can be a Vimeo or website gallery.
- Copies of three long form projects such as features, TV films, TV episodes, feature-length documentaries. If your work is in shorter genres such as commercials, music videos, or current affairs segments, supply copies of at least ten projects. Submission by Vimeo link is preferred but if this is impractical refer the subheading physical media below. DVDs and Blue-rays are not accepted.
If it is impractical for you to load your content to Vimeo you may forward USB or HDD media to:
NZCS Accreditation Committee
PO Box 78 360
DVDs and Blue-rays are not accepted. If you want the physical media back include a self addressed pre-paid courier bag.
Examples of work should be submitted as a Vimeo link or H.264 files on USB stick or hard drive. Physical media will be uploaded to Vimeo for evaluation by the Accreditation Committee.
