A Stone's Throw Productions

Maddy Maxwell

My experience over the last seven years has ranged from production assistant to co-producer (independent films); location assistance; casting assistance and co-ordinating. In 2016 I received New Zealand Film Commission funding assistance to attend The Big Screen Symposium (Auckland) and 'On Location' Workshop (Wellington). In 2017 I attended a funded 'Market Ready Pod' with Screen Wellington/Screen ACT, with assistance from the NZFC, and received Short Film Otago Script Development Funding.
