NZ IDLE | Episode 4 | Enterprise Allowance
To get the Enterprise Allowance you need an ironclad, kiddie locked, solid business plan. Does BAM have what it takes to impress Able and become his own boss?
Today we release episode four of the web series NZ Idle: Friends
with Unemployment Benefits.
Watch it here: http://youtu.be/UDf5C9cwA_E
NZ Idle is a 6 part web series made in Wellington by the Poor Sailors Arts Collective.
NZ Idle aims to reprise the character of the kiwi battler/dag, someone both Good and Keen, and recast them as, BAM, a creative type on the dole in 2013. A fairly natural fit don't you reckon?
Together we'll explore that age-old three-way: oneself, one's kindly social welfare case-manager, and the reform-bent middle-manager who, due to misplaced jealousy and a thinly veiled distaste for beneficiaries, is determined to thwart one's every move towards artistic self-actualisation. In this case: BAM, Jacqui , and Mr Able Twerk.
All the episodes can be viewed at www.nzidle.com.
Episode 5 and 6 will be released next week.
