This is a good site for people who are interested in TV and movies from New Zealand. They have things like old TV shows and short films and movie trailers.
And they have a section called ScreenTalk, which is interviews with people in the TV and film industry in New Zealand.
And the cool thing about these interviews is, they’re all licensed with a creative commons licence which allows you to remix them. So if you’re looking for some video material to play around with, then you might be interested in checking out these videos.
I’m going to show you a clip from an interview off the site that I told you about: NZ On Screen.
This is an interview with a guy called Jason Gunn. He used to be a presenter on a kid’s TV show and he’s talking about the humour on that show and he says that some of it was: over the head of the kids.
Over sb’s head means: too difficult or complicated for sb to understand.
And there’s a gesture that goes with this interview (* I meant to say idiom), like this. And you can see that Jason does it in the clip.
Sarah It was good. I still can’t get used to the fashion though. 楽しかったけどまだ最近のファッションについて行けない。
Tommy Has it changed that much? それほど変わった？
Sarah Yeah. Well, it’s been almost 9 years, so I guess it’s not surprising. NZを離れて９年経っているからね、そんなに驚くほどではないかも。
Tommy So, what’s everyone wearing? みんなどんな服を着ている？
Sarah It’s really, like, 80’s or early 90’s fashion. Sometimes I feel I’ve been taken back to the 80s in a time machine – or that I’m at an 80’s costume party. 80年代から90年代にかけてのファッション。タイムマシンで80年代に戻った気分になる。それか80年代コスチューム・パーティにいる感じ。
