Bigger, Better, Faster, Stronger - Episode Two

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2011

The humble letterbox is targeted in this Aotearoa award-nominated science show, as radio DJ James Colman and music video director Greg Page attempt to “turbo” an everyday object. Their challenge is to move the mail 50 metres from postbox to household as quickly as possible. Coleman glimpses nirvana when he scores a rocket scientist for his team. Battle lines are soon drawn between big bang theory, and slower and steadier. In the pyrotechnics and rocket love that follow, Page sounds almost plausible when he claims his big truck solution as the cleaner, greener option.

Remember, James. Make everything a work of art — because if it looks like crap and doesn’t work, you’ve got nothing. But if it looks great, at least it looks great.
– More rocket science from Peter Beck
