*Exclusive Frontseat Email Competition – Win Tickets to Bash – See Below!


Frontseat reveals the current Top Five Creative Minds in Advertising. Based on the hottest ads currently in circulation and the surprisingly generous votes of their industry peers, these five people are the minds behind ads for everything from lager and crisps to social responsibility.


In his new book “The Selling of New Zealand Movies” (Awa Press) Lindsay Shelton, the former long-time marketing man for the NZ Film Commission, reveals the inside stories, dramas and deal-making behind getting New Zealand films to the rest of the world. He joins Oliver Driver in the studio.


Jacob Rajan and Justin Lewis reveal how they took a 20-minute drama school monologue and turned it into a sell-out trilogy of plays that are now set to tour the world: Krishnan’s Dairy, The Candlestickmaker and The Pickle King.


We’ve brought musician and poet Hinemoana Baker on board to judge the overwhelming number of entries to our Hone Tuwhare-inspired “sex and seafood” poetry competition.


One lucky Wellington email subscriber could WIN a Double Pass to the upcoming Circa Studio season of “Bash”, starring Mia Blake and our host Oliver Driver. “Bash” had a cracker season at Auckland’s Silo Theatre last year and opens in Wellington on 3 August. Simply be the first to reply to this email with the answer to the following question: What religion has Bash playwright Neil LaBute been affiliated with?

Best regards, The Frontseat Team TV One, Sunday Nights (repeated the following Sunday at 6.30am)
