Modern day Genie and 3 Wishes ?

After the world was introduced to New Zealand and the Queenstown region in films like The Piano, Narnia, Wolverine and the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, it should come as no surprise that there is a thriving film industry in New Zealand. What I was surprised about was how many "filmies" there are actually based in Queenstown. During slower periods, some engage themselves in personal projects like film competitions. Here is one that a friend did for a short film competition, Nikon Festival. Clever concept I think. (You might recognize my voice and hands.)
