16 Feb That TELESA Bigscreen Project.

A quick announcement – The NZ Film Commission has awarded development funding for TELESA to make it to the #bigScreen. Still undecided between an international TV series OR a movie. Thank you to producer Karin Williams who fell in love with the books and believes in them enough to light the fire with the NZFC. Next step? They’ll put together a dev and production team, work on a script, connect with investors and a major studio, (and hopefully I will get the opportunity to be mentored by some of the greats in the industry #fingersCrossed) This is only the first step on a long road but its one thats only possible because of YOU – the readers and supporters who have embraced these books and characters. Because of your enthusiasm for this Samoan story, some very significant doors are slowly opening and I truly believe that with your continued support – the sky is the limit. Faafetai tele lava and thank you!  #TelesaMovie #dreamBig #TakingTelesaToTheWorld
