Hi all,
Round up some friends and come on down to Paradiso on Thursday at 6.15pm for the - 'Gone in 60 Seconds' - screenings and audience voting! 
There will be a flippin' hand crafted trophy! 

We will screen some other bits and pieces also.

There will be a chance to chat also.

It will probably be free entry but bring a couple of dollars just in case.(and to buy a yummy cookie!)

Screening will begin at 6.15 prompt! so get there by 6 if possible.
We have an hour exactly so DON'T BE LATE!

Look forward to seeing you all.

Shooting Rabbits

As some of you may know , our own Greg Von Heraud Parker (mayefilms.com) worked on James Camerons new movie, Avatar, which opens in New Zealand on the 18th of December.
What you may not know is that he has also been working on his own short film called Rabbits for the last 27 years*.
Greg and his cast and crew are going to attempt the
impossible and try and get Rabbits finished by the Avatar premiere ,so it can screen at The Paradiso alongside Avatar.
We think It can be done but Greg is going to need HELP.
Greg is looking for any volunteer's out
there.He promises to work you hard and pay you nothing.But, don't forget , this is the man who brought you the stuff of legend that is WoollyMan and WoollyMan II !!
Mere association with this cult director can almost certainly guarantee you fame and immediate attractiveness and a Rabbits branded beer mug full of unicorn tears (probably).
Greg has a shooting weekend planned this 14th/15th November but any help at any time would be wicked.
If you can offer any help,in any capacity - Greg and the team would be very grateful to hear from you.
Flick him an email to greg followed by @ and then mayefilms.com .


*(may not actually be 27yrs)
