Watch This Filmmaking Masterclass with New Zealand’s Best!

Taika Waititi has got to be one of the most underrated creatives in the film industry today. His charm and wit come out so prevalently through his work that it’s hard not to recognize his work.

Eagle vs. Shark 2007

Flight of the Conchords 2007-2009

Boy 2010

What We Do In The Shadows 2014

Hunt For The Wilderpeople 2016

Thor: Ragnarok 2017

Even though each of these movies carries very different stories and themes, the persona of Waititi still manages to come out so richly.

Last September, Waititi showed up to the TIFF to talk all things film in a masterclass. His hilarious sense of humor shined as he spoke about beginning in film, all the way up to Ragnarok.

Watch this masterclass, and take in some inspiration from Waititi’s quirky and calm storytelling.
