Kiwi Mockumentary about the Gumboot: VIDEO

Yeah, I know they are using blogs to garner some viral traffic, but at least they asked nicely instead of trying to be tricky

Hi Cameron,

Here is the link to a short film that could be a great fit on your blog:

It is a mockumentary about the use of the ultimate Kiwi icon, the gumboot. It features a star studded cast – Melanie Lynskey, Valerie Adams, Colin Meads, Dai Henwood, Steve Wrigley, Denise L’Estrange-Corbet, Beauden Barrett and Kane Barrett.

It premiered at Tropfest NZ, the New Zealand contingent of the largest short film festival in the world, to around 8000 people. I am the writer, director and producer of the film, hope you enjoy viewing it!

Kind regards,

No probs Tess…happy to help, thanks for asking.

Here is the video for readers :
