Local Kiwi Web-Series Selected For Los Angeles Web Festival

Local Kiwi Web-Series Selected For Los Angeles Web Festival

Thursday, 6 March 2014

AUCKLAND, Thursday 6 March , 2014 – Kiwi webseries 'Walter Wants a Woman' has been selected to screen at the Los Angeles Web Festival 2014. LA WebFest was the first festival for web-series in the world and the team (Rachel Choy, Jeremy Garland & Callum Butcher) are honoured to be involved in the 3 day festival. The festival takes place from the 26th of March - 30th March, 2014 and several episodes will be screened.

'Walter Wants a Woman' is a web-series consisting of vlogs and dates. It stars Walter, an almost-30-year-old who has decided to start something he thinks he’ll be quite good at: dating. He’s never had a girlfriend before, but he has had a hug once! He has some interesting ideas about dating and really is quite hopeless when it comes to girls. Full of awkward tension, and plenty of cringeworthy moments, it's a raw and hilarious comedy.

The team have also decided to make a second self-funded season of 'Walter Wants a Woman' in March and release it in late April/early May. While they don't want to give too much away, the second season is going to be quite different – but still keeping the original charm and comedy from the first season.

'Walter Wants a Woman' has had nearly 10,000 views on YouTube and the numbers keep growing. This project is close to zero-budget and a complete labour of love, with the aim to make people laugh. To see what all the fuss is about, Walter's YouTube is here: www.youtube.com/waltzmyheart

Scoop Review Of Books: No Longer An Island

Simon Nathan reviews 'Zealandia: Our Continent Revealed': The idea that New Zealand is part of a large submerged continent is not new... There was renewed interest in the extent of offshore New Zealand from the 1970s onwards with the start of offshore drilling for oil and gas, and this was given impetus by a UN agreement which allowed countries to claim an Extended Continental Shelf (ECS).

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
