The New Zealand Broadcasting School, Park Road Post and the Ara Foundation have partnered to offer selected second-year Bachelor of Broadcasting Communications (Screen and Television Production) students the opportunity to attend a 10-day industry intensive master class at Park Road Post each year.

Park Road Post is part of the internationally famous Peter Jackson owned Weta group of companies based in Miramar in Wellington.

This master class accepts a limited number of students each year, some of whom are drawn from selected tertiary providers, including the New Zealand Broadcasting School.

The students selected will learn from some of the best technical and creative minds in post-production picture and sound in the world. They will leave the course better prepared for internships, whether at Park Road Post or elsewhere having been exposed to state of the art technology and experience working in onset acquisition/dailies grading, online editing/conform, colour grading, stereography, VFX and mastering.

In the sound aspect of the course, students will have experience in sound effects and sound design, foley, dialogue, music and mixing. Overall they will gain an in-depth understanding of the process of post-production and the role it plays in the entire film making process.


The award will be granted annually to the top students undertaking post-production craft as their BCME700 Media Ecology Individual Project and who, in the opinion of the New Zealand Broadcasting School, will benefit most from the experience.

Second year Bachelor of Broadcasting Communications (Screen and Television Production) students, who express an interest, will be considered.

  • A minimum of two awards will be offered, at $3,000 each - including course fees and return Christchurch-Wellington airfares.
  • Attendees will be required to make a joint presentation to their peers on their return to their studies in Christchurch.
  • Attendees will be required to provide a short written evaluation of the course and benefits, for reporting purposes.
