Good For Nothing (2011) [Dir. Mike Wallis] - a classic Western shot in the dramatic Central Otago and McKenzie Country of the South Island of New Zealand.

“Who knew that New Zealand was the best place in the modern world to shoot a western…” – The Santa Barbara Independent

From the Official Website...

Inspired by the Spaghetti Westerns this highly original classic style Western is about to hit the big screen internationally.

Good for Nothing is an adventurous romp following an odd romance set in the sweeping Old West. An epic independent feat written and directed by first-time director Mike Wallis it celebrates the Western genre with an interesting twist.The production even secured a genuine locomotive steam engine (the Kingston Flyer) and a herd of bison (American Buffalo).

“The ravishing New Zealand landscape portrays the American West…a promising frontier…” – The New York Times

“New Zealand, which has the perfect mix of arid desolation and rough, frontier terrain to flawlessly mimic the American Southwest.” – Ain’t It Cool News

Looking forward to seeing this "Pavlova Western" on the big screen...the film just had its New Zealand Premiere at The Embassy Theatre in Wellington, New Zealand having already premiered at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival and in New York earlier this year.

Still get enjoyment out of watching this animated television commercial that +Brendon Hornell produced for the 2009 New Zealand Documentary Film Festival. This piece of animation was produced in response to a competition run by DOCNZ to create a TVC promtoting the upcoming festival and using the provided catch phrase "Docs Rock!" - one of those short films where you think - well they just got it spot on.

If you are having problems playing this in Google+ you can find the original at
