Hi Guys! I’m still in London, and haven’t had time to film too much this week. I’ve published another video, just summarising what I’ve been up to and talking about my plans for the future. Check it out!
So now I’m fairly well settled in London. I traveled here in August 2016… a long process of two flights and a 12 hour stopover in Hong Kong. I’ve been shooting video while I’m here, but been so busy with work that I haven’t had time to put this first video together, plus it’s a long one. Future videos will be posted more frequently, and be shorter!
Note: Updated the video after, ironically, the first version had audio issues!
After battling neighbors with cherry pickers and a huge lack of time, I have uploaded the first of many YouTube videos – How to Remove Background Noise in Adobe Audition CC.
If you’re a child of the 70s and 80s, like me, then television was probably a huge part of your life. New Zealand wasn’t known for its drama, comedy or sci-fi back then, so we were forced to watch whatever was popular in the US and UK at the time. We only had two channels in 1975 when I was very young – TV3 only came along in 1989.
Everyone’s TV experience as a child was unique, and we all had our favourite shows. There were also shows for adults that, while we didn’t understand or necessarily enjoy them, we had no other viewing choices.
So, here are some shows that hit the nostalgia button for me. I’ve tried to dig up clips that represent the show’s heyday, or particular episodes that were favorites. Where possible I’ve linked to a whole episode, but often it’s just the intro you need 😉
If you loved Koyaanisqatsi (I saw it on acid years ago and it still blows my mind) you’ll love this Vimeo short. You’d have to be a child of the 80s to really appreciate it…
“In the spaces in between, in the regional qualities of silence, something was missing. Even in the age of infill housing and noise control officers, much of New Zealand seemed to be on close terms with abstraction.”

Aotearoa Now is a meditative journey into the New Zealand landscape. An experimental mosaic of image and sound. A really bad tourism campaign.
