Just 3 days left to make 1 minute film

Auckland’s under 25 film-makers have just a few days left to try and win a share of $7000 prize money through Auckland Council’s youth video challenge.

The videos must be under one minute, and say what Auckland needs to invest in to become ‘the world’s most liveable city’.

Filmmakers have until midnight this Sunday 20 July to submit their video. Finalist’s videos will be put on YouTube, with the winners being those with the most views. First place will receive a $3000 prize.

The top videos will be used through the coming year to help encourage other Aucklanders to get engaged in choices around Auckland’s 10 year spending plan, the Long-term Plan 2015-2025, which sets out how much the council will spend, on what, where and when.

Videos can cover local matters or those affecting Auckland as a whole.

The rules to enter are:
1. you must be 25 or under to enter
2. you have to 20 July to make your video, answering the question: “What should Auckland spend money on to become the world's most liveable city?”
3. videos must be one minute or less
4. you can use a mobile phone or whatever you want to make it. But you must send it to us in .mp4 or .mov format
5. you can make one by yourself, one with your friends or both – and you can enter as many times as you want.

Gordon Campbell: The PM’s Hair-Pulling Power Trip

There have been striking differences between (a) the account of the waitress involved in the hair-pulling incidents, and (b) the account being given by Prime Minister John Key. The version by the waitress is available here and is recommended to anyone yet to read it. By her account, there were multiple instances of hair-pulling and these persisted and persisted long after she had made her annoyance clear to Key – who had also been advised by his wife, and by other café staff that the behavior was evidently not being welcomed.
