Gradually, various New Zealand film related items will be
featured here, that have no easy catagory for any other section
of this website. Notice of new additions will be indicated within the NEWS section.
Suffice to say that, except its organisation, little within this website originated from me.
Some text commentary is mine, and gradually I will be changing the title summaries to ones that
will be completely mine. Currently some of them are
borrowed, with permission, from the IPL Books publication: CELLULOID
DREAMS - A Century of film in New Zealand.
Many of the images have been copied from video jackets and dvd slicks, but some
have been supplied from other sources. The most obvious
source being the New Zealand
Film Commission, without which we would all be poorer, when
it comes to New Zealand films. Some images have been supplied from the film's producers or distributors.
Much detailed insight to New Zealand films has been provided from
a variety of sources, with the Helen Martin/Sam Edwards book,
NEW ZEALAND FILM - 1912-1996 furnishing the initial
introduction which percipitated this project. Although now OOP, I certainly
recommend this source.
In addition to the already mentioned CELLULOID DREAMS, I have
also learned from the Jonathan Dennis/Jan Bieringa book:
FILM IN AOTEAROA, and Roger Booth's BRUNO-
The Bruno Lawrence Story. I also wish to point out that David
Lindsay has allowed me to use portions of items from his monthly
magazine of the Wellington Film Society - SEQUENCE.
I have no intent of slighting anyone, nor do I claim ownership of
any images, sound clips or other original refered or used text.
This site is meant to be a single site reference source of
material that is found within a variety of materials, and in a
variety of locations. Much of this information can found around
the internet, but a typical search engine is not likely to be of
much help. If the owners of any information or images, displayed
here, insist on their removal, I will certainly comply, but
understand that I am trying to assist in the understanding, and
by extension, the improved distribution and proper sales of these
items. Although I occationally sell used items, it is not my primary
intent to sell books, videos, dvds, cds or any such NZ film related items,
but to assist in the authorized sale of those items by providing information
about them and sources from which interested parties may acquire them.
This site does not support misuse of intellectual property rights, and
accordingly, restricts itself to material either commercially available or
no longer in general circulation. We do not link to pirate sites, nor will
we provide information regarding those sites unless it is helpful towards
the removal of such sites.
