Nia's Extra Ordinary Life - Series One

Web (Full Length Episodes) – 2014

Aimed at children, these bite-sized episodes follow the adventures of a 10-year-old girl for whom the ordinary becomes extraordinary. Nia (Shania Gilmour) lives in the Northland seaside town of Tinopai. Across 12 episodes of this web series, she introduces herself, her friend Hazel, her pet taniwha, the local beach, the bully police and her highly active imagination which is brought to life via animation. The show's diary format takes us inside Nia's head. From Kiel McNaughton and Kerry Warkia (Auckland Daze), Nia's Extra Ordinary Life screened on YouTube and Māori Television. A second season followed.

Heavy on imagination and creativity and very cute.
– Listener critic Fiona Rae, 5 June 2014
