Here we go

I’ve set myself the challenge of watching every NZ On Air-funded music video.

Since the first funding round in April 1991, there have been well over 2200 videos funded. So that’s a lot to get through, including a some of my faves and few that I’m not especially looking forward to seeing again.

Because I want to share these videos with you, dear reader, at this stage I’m going to restrict my viewings to what I can find online. Though if an artist doesn’t have their videos on the web, that in itself is pretty interesting.

I’m going through the videos by the funding rounds they were in, not the release date of the video. Most videos are released just a few months after their funding round, but some can be delayed or released in a different order.

I’ll review one video per week day, with bonus posts to mourn the missing videos, and I reserve the right to change that or take a break if I start to get all videoed out.

And if you have any stories, factoids or general comments, feel free to leave a comment on the relevant page.

    1. Well, I don’t currently have a mailing list (maybe a weekly digest?), but I’ll see what I can do. I’m probably going to have a Twitter account with notifications, if that would help.

  1. Ambitious project! Looking forward to it unfold. I missed a whole lot of NZ music in the 90s – so you’ll be a valuable source of catching up knowledge for me. Thanks Robyn !

  2. Hi Robyn,

    Well done. You could set-up a mailchimp acct and make a fortnightly or monthly auto RSS feed that would make it really easy for people to follow and apart from setup chimp is now free up to 2000 subscribers.
