Exploring the world of NZ On Air music video funding

P-Money featuring Scribe “Stop the Music”

“Stop the Music” was the first single off P-Money’s second album and also his first number one single. Or – if you count the work he did on Scribe’s solo album – it’s his and Scribe’s third number one single…. Continue Reading →

Opshop “Being”

“Being” is set at an old cinema, which I immediately recognised as the Crystal Palace in Mount Eden, the star of Dead End Beat’s porny “All My Riches” video. But things are a lot more G-rated with Opshop. While Opshop… Continue Reading →

Minuit “I Hate Guns”

Minuit are a band who have always made stylish videos for their songs, and this time they’ve gone for a stylish animation. The video is also another recipient of the $1500 grant from Positively Wellington Business for the production of… Continue Reading →

Lazrus “Infinite Boxes”

“Infinite Boxes” was the second of Lazrus’ two funded music videos. This time the song is about the pain of a relationship break-up. The video sees Lazrus play a postie – and according to Amplifier, this was also his real-life… Continue Reading →

Deja Voodoo “Can’t Do (What I Wanna Do)”

This song tackles the subject of what it’s like being a 30-year-old man in love with a 14-year-old girl. Because, yeah, 14-year-old girls are totally hot for gross, hairy, sweaty old guys. The video avoids showing the subject of the… Continue Reading →
