Music video funding boost
Porirua City has combined with New Zealand On Air in a funding scheme to encourage the filming of music videos outside main cities.
Called Bring It Home, the scheme gives artists who have secured New Zealand On Air funding for a music video more money if they film their video, hire people or buy goods and services in a local area that’s part of the scheme.
For the first Bring It Home scheme, artists who film in or use resources in the Porirua City area for a music video receive $2000 from Porirua City Council, and $6000 New Zealand On Air music video funding.
Artists will qualify for the Porirua City Council top-up only if they have secured New Zealand on Air funding.
There are five grants available initially.
