RIVALS - New Zealand Magma Short Film Festival


Mark Hansen Directed and Produced (as well as acted and filmed) this 6 minute short in the fascinating landscape of Dunedin (which is in the Southern portion of South Island, New Zealand).

Along with fellow actor, Michiel Mos, two rivals meet annually in this wasteland to vie for supremacy.

Their choice of weaponry? boules.

Good Luck Mark - we're pulling for you!

How to ALWAYS have the closest point

Ever since I attached the chain to the boule and cochonnet I've never lost a game. Heck, I always win with a fanny!

Most of the players don't want to challenge me any more. Perhaps I should take up golf...

1... 2... 3.. THROW!!!

All Smiles at Petanque On Sunday

Grand Day at Royal Oak

The weather was absolutely perfect, despite the weatherman saying "RAIN"

I (Jeff) stayed until 6:30pm taking in a final victory game with Marcel against Camille and Eric.

With October's slight chill approaching, members would be smart to take in as many games as possible before the snow falls.
