Nua Finau transcript

What's up team? It's your boy Nua Finau here from Small Blacks TV.

Check it out, I'm here at New Zealand Rugby House and I'm here to get you excited about writing. Boom bang.

We have a thing called a teleprompter. If you watch the news, it's kind of an invisible thing that goes up. And you're reading. It looks like we're talking, but I have to write that. So if you think, when we make TV, we have to do the whole thing in one day.

So you might see it over three months, but we've filmed it in one day. So all of my lines I have to write it all down because imagine trying to make up a whole year's worth of TV just off the top of your head.

Impossible mate.

My mother made me read all the time. She used wake us up at like six in the morning every morning  – no lie – to read. But some of my books that I read back then were like the Goosebumps series, I don't know if they still make that actually. But I also liked pick-a-paths. I don't even know if they do those anymore. But those were the best books that I liked.


“Nobody saw the secret camera flying above Hemi and his Dad in their backyard. They were too busy banging away. When all of a sudden ... brrr, bee, whrrr, ffizzzzz, boom, ka ba boom boom ka!

They couldn't believe it!

'Hemi, you can't tell anyone about this OK?'

Hemi nodded as the secret camera flew away.”


That's my story starter.

Boom bang.
