Image for Memory Box: The Kiwi Stories of WWII


The urgency of this project cannot be understated. There are few surviving WWII veterans and this is perhaps the last generation that will have the opportunity to hear their first-hand experiences. This project aims to create a platform for young people to preserve significant oral history of NZ and, through the process, gain an appreciation for the contributions of New Zealanders in WWII.

Image for Shmeat Film Score

Shmeat Productions Ltd.

Shmeat is a short animated black comedy about a dystopic New Zealand where we’ve run out of meat. A peculiar scientist, Lecta, has come up with an idea that may just save us all... On the 22nd of September, we are looking to add some extra value to our animated film by recording professional orchestral players in a live two hour session. The depth of expression, humanity, warmth and colour that live musicians can achieve leaves even the finest digital mock-ups in the dust. But we need your help to achieve this recording session! Please donate and join us in bringing Shmeat to the next level.
