It Snowed

It snowed in Miramar! It snowed in Wellington CBD, it's snowed in Auckland. It snowed. And it flashed and banged in the sky. The power has flickered on and off. And we have all giggled and squealed at some point during the day. What an amazing time, and we're only half way through so who knows what we'll wake up to tomorrow.

6 Years Of Being A Kiwi

And it's been awesome! I love this country ... well, to be honest I love the city of Wellington and even more specifically the suburb of Miramar as it evolves into the best wee spot of land to live in.

NZOnScreen Wants You!

During the upcoming Rugby World Cup, as part of the REAL NZ Festival (the cultural arm of the rugger), Wellington company Storybox has teamed up with NZ On (excellent website if you haven't checked it out) to create two massive container installations on the Wellington and Auckland waterfronts. And we're looking for volunteer hosts to be rostered on site during the six week period. I [ Anna D ] thought you may know of some keen beans, preferably NZ film and TV buffs who are enthusiastic, approachable and good at dealing with the public. You may have come across a super intern recently, perhaps know a young person or have a friend who wants something a little extra on their CV, or maybe know someone with an exceptional screen knowledge that just needs sharing. If you could pass on this picture we would be most grateful. People can get in touch directly with Mark Westerby . Do come and check out the project during REAL too. It's prett
