Lil O'Brien's teenage years become a coming-out memoir

After telling her coming-out story numerous times to high schoolers Lil O'Brien decided to write the full and often painful story in a memoir. The Auckland freelance copywriter felt the time was right to share the intense and confusing teenage years she experienced trying to figure out her sexuality, and face the serious consequences when her parents found out before she had a chance to tell them. Lil reads from Not That I'd Kiss a Girl, from the part focused on her university years. Not that I'd Kiss a Girl by Lil O'Brien is published by Allen & Unwin

Four New Zealand women composers tackle a new project

On Standing Room Only we've spoken to Creative New Zealand about its Covid-19 pivot so it could get emergency grants out quickly to artists. Now we are hearing from some of the successful applicants, to find out about their big plans. Today it's a project that involves the commissioning of four New Zealand women composers to create miniature, 3-minute works. It's the brainchild of flutist Hannah Darroch and pianist Andrew Crooks who've already started recording the compositions. They are both usually based overseas. Hannah tells Lynn Freeman she had a heap of projects planned back home, until Covid-19 wrecked them.

Lisa Reihana and James Pinker return home

Video Artist Lisa Reihana had just opened one of her biggest commissions for the famous shoemaker Christian Louboutin, when Covid-19 shut it down and her other 5 shows on show around the world. Lynn Freeman caught up with Lisa and James a few days ago at the end of a road trip. They'd been expecting to finally have a break at home in April, but that's now extended: Lisa says despite all the hard work involved, they're philosophical about their shows and other future opportunities being impacted by the pandemic to some degree.

The Screen Sector Recovery Package - who wins?

This week the Government acknowledged the importance of the screen industry to New Zealand - feature films, local and international... television series for home and overseas audiences... as well as short films, web-series and many others. They've all been affected by the Covid 19 lockdowns and so welcome the Screen Sector Recovery Package announced on Wednesday by Minister for Arts, Culture and Heritage, Carmel Sepuloni. So where does the money go, and what's its purpose - seed money for a multi-billion dollar industry or top-up for a "nice to have" feelgood arts project? We're joined by a pretty high-powered panel representing a wide range of interests. From the New Zealand Film Commission, Leanne Saunders, Head of Development and Production, and Philippa Mossman, Head of International Screen Attractions. On the line is one of our most successful film producers Matthew Metcalfe, of Dean Spanley and McLaren fame In Auckland, we have Kelly Martin from our top producers of TV and film, SPP, who make Shortland Street and The Brokenwood Mysteries, and here in Wellington, Amie Mills Head of Funding from New Zealand On Air.
