NZ Idle is a 6 part web series that was released in April 2014. The 7-10 minute episodes were originally aired on The Wireless
NZ Idle aims to reprise the character of the kiwi battler/dag, someone both Good and Keen, and recast them as a creative type on the dole in 2013. A fairly natural fit don't you reckon?
Together we'll explore that age-old three-way: oneself, one's kindly social welfare case-manager, and the reform-bent middle-manager who, due to misplaced jealousy and a thinly veiled distaste for beneficiaries, is determined to thwart one's every move towards artistic self-actualisation. In this case: BAM, Jacqui , and Mr Able Twerk.
NZ Idle is Poor Sailors Arts Collective production.
