EXT . A STREET IN WELLINGTON . DAY
NICK and LEE are walking down a city street. Lee is wearing his painting-and-decorating clothes. Nick is wearing what could probably be described as a suit… like a plumber about to make a court appearance… but suspiciously DIY-looking. He also appears to have “done something” with his hair.
NICK : So are we going to try to stay on-message then?
LEE : Yea, totally
NICK : Yea. Agreed. We totally should. Totally stay on message. Right.
NICK : So… um… what is it?
LEE : What’s what dude?
NICK : Our um… … … message
LEE : Don’t say anything too political
NIC : Eh? What kind of of message is that? It’s like saying “I’m not an astrologer, or I’m not into origami or something”
LEE : But you are into origami.
NICK : Who me?
LEE (imitating Nick ): Who me? LOL, I don’t see anyone else here, you talkin to me? you talkin to me?
NICK : Yea, yea – LOL, You talkin to me? Taxi Driver. You talkin to me? Genius
NICK (changing up a gear) : Yea, yea – brilliant – Have you seen that French one with the skinheads and whatnot where he goes “you talkin to me, you talkin to me” in a mirror and the camera kindof zooms through him so there must have been two skinheads pretending to be the same one… you only realise how weird it is if you really analyze the scene – La Haine… great film
NICK : Anyway some of the Origami that’s turning up in the internets now is amazing – there’s been this mega-quantum leap in quality… kindofa 2001 aSpaceOddesy moment… same thing’s happened with lego and Rube Goldberg machi’… oh hang on, we’re here.
they enter a pair of tinted glass doors… “KIWI FM RADIO”…
… the camera lingers on the street while a person talking arm-wavingly on a bluetooth headset does one of those “get past each other on the pavement” dances with someone coming the other way, eating a heisenburger. A car toots, and a worried looking person with an empty shopping trolley scurries past at right-angles.
We were on the radio t’other day.
On Access Radio with Jen and Laura : Play Episode
And talked about by Msbehaviour on Kiwi FM here:
and there was also a writeup about tinkerers and creators by Esther Goh on Idealog.co.nz
So a special and huge thank-you to everyone who helped
One of our core-principles is that we’re not spending any money on advertising – but are instead making/doing things, that are interesting enough for people to talk about. We’re going to try to “make news” rather than buy it… because we can’t really afford to buy it anyway… and word-of-mouth is so much more authentic.
La Haine Mirror Scene
Watch the camera. God knows how long it took to set that up, and I bet 99% of the people who have seen this film don’t even notice it.
