The Shed

Volunteering at the NZOnScreen Shed on the Wellington Waterfront means I’ve been watching lots of clips. I’ve linked to some of my favourite short films (which you can see).

I’ve handed in a 10,000 word essay and have nearly finished my Honours degree. Yay! That’s why I haven’t updated this blog in a while.

I’ve been volunteering at the NZOnScreen shed on the Wellington Waterfront. It’s been awesome. The shed is there until the end of the Rugby World Cup, so only one more week. There’s a shed in Auckland, and a caravan travelling around the South Island. There’s an interactive wall with clips from the website, and short films playing. I’ve been able to watch some of the short films. So I’m going to share with you some of my favourites. (You can see all of these and more at nzonscreen.com).

Edit: looks like I can’t embed from the NZOnScreen website, even though they have that option. Hmmm…. so links here, and you’ll have to watch the films there.

I know people in this film! But also it’s a really good story, well-told, well-shot, well-worth-seeing.
