Collaborate and create videos online using Google Drive.

Now these guys at +WeVideo are on to it. Google Drive launched yesterday and they're already on Google Plus with a promotional video.

There is a free option which allows 15 "export" minutes per month - not sure if they mean by that a clip of 15 minutes in length per month or a clip of any length (shorter or longer) which takes 15 minutes to upload.
 
You already share your messages, status updates and even hang out with your friends. Now you can collaborate and create videos with the help of WeVideo and Google Drive. Find out more:

Animation - a couple of rocks (yes rocks!!) discuss "what's so great about documentary film" [2009, New Zealand, Animated TVC, 60 secs]

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 http://vimeo.com/3021650

If want more info you can check out Brendon Hornell's website at www.brendonhornell.co.nz/docs-rock/

New Zealand banks compete with each other in the race to reduce home loan interest rates - still not as low as in the United States though.

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... http://www.goodfornothingmovie.com/

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.

The filmmakers were calling it a "Pavlova Western" on their production blog http://www.mifilms.co.nz/ back when they started their self-funded journey in 2008.

Producer/Director/Writer Mike Wallis "instead of buying a house we've decided to make a movie" had previously worked in visual effects on Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings Trilogy and King Kong as well on James Cameron’s Avatar.

For those who don't know a 'Pavlova' is a popular Kiwi desert which was invented in New Zealand - even though some Australians still claim it was invented there. More about Pavlova here... http://tinyurl.com/48vlm3

+Elizabeth Jamieson asks "what's the big G doing to kill off poor DropBox?"

Just that fact that Google is Google has a lot to do with the early buzz. But I think given that people are generally comfortable with how Google is striving to have seemless integration between their key services helps with the rapid adoption of Google's new services. Also the expectation that Google isn't going to be bought-out or disappear any time soon makes Google a "safer bet". And thirdly, to be honest I don't really know much about DropBox at all - but I (and I'm sure many others) are ready and willing to learn about Google Drive - and give it a try (again partly because "Google" itself has decided that this could be a useful tool).

Thanks to +pio dal cin for sharing this post.
 
A rival to DropBox (which I love). I love the way it just does stuff for you while you are doing something else, all quiet and efficient. So what's the big G doing to kill off poor DropBox?
