Annie won the sport section and was third in the women’s competition at the US slalom nationals in Maui. Terry was second in both the semi-pro event and the men’s 40-59 age group racing. He was lucky he got to compete. He broke his thumb the day after their flights to Hawaii were booked. The couple also hadn’t been doing much windsurtfing for several months, making their performances even more sweeter. “We’re stoked. We didn’t have any expectations to be on the podium,” Annie said. Also on page 1 today, we have more developments in the long running saga over the Sumner apartments. – Barry Clarke GENERAL INQUIRIES Ph 379 7100 CLASSIFIED ADVERTISING Ph 379 1100 Star Media, a division of Allied Press Ltd PO box 1467, Christchurch starmedia.kiwi NEWS Jess Gibson Ph: 021 914 169 email@example.com ADVERTISING Jo-Anne Fuller Ph: 364 7425 jo.fuller@ starmedia.kiwi Rob Davison Ph: 021 225 8584 rob.davison@ starmedia.kiwi news Teens make rockquest finals Sumner musician Minnie Robberds is heading to the Smokefreerockquest event this week.

Wednesday August142019 Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi BAY HARBOUR PAGE 3 News ‘Banks-centric’ film in the works • By Jess Gibson A SHORT film showcasing Port Levy is set to be made. Peninsula will be a fictional drama about three isolated people who manage to connect in a very surprising way. Award-winning editorturned-producer Scott Flyger and screenwriter/director Fiona McKenzie have teamed up to produce the film, which has been inspired by real-life events. Flyger, who lives in Governors Bay, said the project will be “Banks-centric.” “We wanted it to be based in a small township in the Banks Peninsula, as it has very beautiful aspects and scenery. It’s moody and can have lots of sunshine or dark clouds. It’s quite a dramatic landscape.” He said the film will incorporate a cast, music talent, crew members and props from around the peninsula. Flyger was editor of the BAFTA award-winning comedy series, That Mitchell and Webb Look, and his other works have won awards around the globe. After writing for children’s staples Play School and What Now, McKenzie was a journalist on CTV, before training as a director at South Pacific Pictures. Lyttelton resident and theatre actor Tom Trevella has been cast as Mark, a sound engineer who moves to Banks Peninsula to try and find his place within the world. Mr Trevella said he is excited to see the film put a spotlight on the area and its creative people as “so much of the industry is based in the North Island.” Trevella will star in the film alongside Jasper Sutcliffe, who is set to play Toby, and Amber Ranson. Ranson, who has Down’s syndrome, has a goal to star in a film before the end of the year. The team are on track to fundraise the $15,000 production budget, which will cover props and costumes, location and accommodation fees, equipment, publicity, money for the cast and crew, and catering contributions. Screen CanterburyNZ is supportive of the project and is helping with marketing, as the organisation wants to grow the area as a filming destination. SCENE: Fiona McKenzie, Scott Flyger and line producer Kim Georgine discuss their upcoming short film Peninsula at a pre-production meeting. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER Flyger said the crew hopes to start shooting in September so the film is wrapped up by December. People who donate to the film will be offered an on-screen credit and will be kept up to date throughout preproduction and production. •To make a donation, visit https://www.boosted.org. nz/projects/peninsula?fb clid=IwAR2bIHXH_9zO40Ezt 2ZpncnRmlxAxTJrz9EAEKm TIQb1Pjs4XcQSFpidSFg •What Now in Lyttelton, page 9 In Brief LE BONS BAY RD CRASH St John and the Akaroa Volunteer Fire Brigade were called to a crash on Le Bons Bay Rd at 10.41am on Thursday.

SURF CLUB FEEDBACK Feedback on a proposal to change the Taylors Mistake Surf Life Saving Club’s lease will close on Monday.
