    • Flyovers and the Wellywood sign
      • 14 Jun 2011
      • Wellington Scoop
      • One word was missing from the Transport Agency’s announcement that next month it will finally tell the public about its plans for changing State Highway One around the Basin Reserve. The word which the Agency chose not to use: flyover.

      • Eye of the Fish
      • It seems almost inevitable that if this Wellywood sign goes ahead (all perfectly legal, the bloke from the Council tells me), then it is going to get some “special treatment” metered out in due course. And because we are such a creative lot in Wellington, and because the interwebs is here, let’s see how good [...]

    • Wellywoodgate: Celia – where for art thou?
      • 23 May 2011
      • WCC Watch
      • More on Celia vs Wellywood, this time straight from the Wellingtonista… As a side note, it’s particularly distressing to see Celia Wade-Brown admitting her total powerlessness: Wellington Mayor Celia Wade-Brown said yesterday that she did not support a sign of any kind.

    • Wellywoodgate: Where is the Mayor?
      • 23 May 2011
      • WCC Watch
      • Given that the Wellywood sign, which has thousands and thousands of Wellingtonians up in arms, is being put up by a company which is 34% owned by the council, and requires a resource consent from the council, you’d have thought that the Mayor would be showing a bit of leadership on the issue.

    • Wellywood Sign Is A Joke
      • 22 May 2011
      • Auckland Trains
      • In 2009, the Infratil-run Wellington Airport company began investigating the construction of a monument on an unused piece of land on the Miramar Peninsular to add another high profile attraction to Wellington.

    • Wellywood Sign Song
      • 22 May 2011
      • The Wellingtonista
      • Comedian Robbie Ellis – who you may remember for his show-stopping performance of Manners Mall Emo Song (Buslane Through My Heart) at the 2009 TAWAs – has a new video. In reaction to the hugely unpopular plan by Wellington Airport to erect a “WELLYWOOD” sign, Robbie has put his feelings into song. Sing along!

    • Has the airport company lost the plot?

      • SAY NO TO WELLYWOOD SIGNOur brand as the creative centre of New Zealand is in the process of being downgraded. To even have a lengthy public debate is corrosive. Adopting this tacky imitation makes us look deeply shallow and builds a perception that will leave a sense of discomfort for many years to come. We are so much better than this.

      • WELLYWOOD SIGN MUST NOT GO UP SAYS BRYAN PEPPERELL- Wellington City Council's rep on the Airport company is Deputy Mayor Ian McKinnon and for his representation on behalf of the ratepayers he receives an extra $40,000. If Cr McKinnon cannot put up a good argument opposing such tasteless negative branding he really should resign from the airport company.

      • Unbelievable! Why are we are telling the world our creative film industry are just wanna be copy cats of Hollywood? Even the film industry think its a joke.

    • Oh god no
      • 20 May 2011
      • The Wellingtonista
      • Remember when Wellington Airport, after the howls of protest and outright mockery, backed off on its cringe-inducing Wellywood sign idea and promised to go away and think of something better to celebrate our film industry? Well, they’ve had a good, long think about it, and this morning’s paper announces that they’ve come up with a brilliant idea: A Wellywood sign.

      • 31 Mar 2010
      • The Wellingtonista
      • Wellington Airport has actually listened to the massive public opposition to the Wellywood sign (and potential legal troubles from Hollywood) and have ditched the idea.

    • Wellywood: good idea, dreadful idea
      • 9 Mar 2010
      • Wellington Scoop
      • It’s a great idea to put a Hollywood-style sign on the Miramar peninsula. But it’s a dreadful idea for the sign to use the cliched “Wellywood” word, which does nothing except show that we are hankering after older and bigger film industries rather than having confidence in our own identity and our own name.

      • The Wellingtonista
      •  First it was "Bret or Jermaine?" then "Smash Malice or Brutal Paegent?" but now it's time for the really big decision - which Facebook group to join - "Hey, let's NOT have a 'Wellywood' sign in Wellington"or "A WELLYWOOD sign on the Miramar Cutting Hill is a STUPID idea"?

      • The Wellingtonista
      • The Wellywood sign madness/awesomeness continues! Aucklander Edward from has created the Wellywood Sign Generator. This is a crop of my attempt, where I have added a helpful "lol" to explain that the sign is a "send-up" and a "tongue-in-cheek play" on the Hollywood sign.

      • 8 Mar 2010
      • The Wellingtonista
      • Everyone knows that while Wellington has a world-class, award-winning film production industry, it's been sorely lacking one serious thing: a giant sign proclaiming WELLYWOOD.
