Ready to Roll? 100 Classic Kiwi Clips
Did you know you can watch 100 classic New Zealand music video clips on the Film Archive’s website? The project is called Ready to Roll and clips are organised by title, author, year, label or director. The oldest clips available are from 1967; the most recent are from 2008.
During New Zealand Music Month in May people on the site have also been voting for their favourite clips. Voting unfortunately closed at the weekend so you can no longer register your vote – but you can see NZ’s top 10 music video clips as voted on at the Film Archive. Have a look!
The Film Archive collects, protects and projects New Zealand’s film and television history, and their website is worth a look – they have some quite incredible content. Just as one example, you can view New Zealand’s earliest surviving piece of film, of soldiers departing for the Boer War in 1900. Wow.
