Collab Project with Monster Valley

Monster Valley was established at the beginning of 2012 as a hub for creative practices.

New Zealand has a rich and vibrant history of street art culture - a story that we believe is yet to be told. 'Dregs' will showcase how this underground art movement began and what it has evolved into today. It will go behind the scenes to expose this movement and the creative people driving it.

The documentary will include interviews with artists all over New Zealand in their personal studio spaces. It’ll also explore their personal lives and workplaces, to try and understand why these artists do what they do. 'Dregs' will aim to challenge the current prejudices against those who choose to create art with a spray can, examining the street scene with an impartial eye and portraying the art form as just that - a form of art.


There are currently over 25 of New Zealand's most prolific, influential and forward-thinking street artists involved in the project. Redbull NZ and the Garage Project brewery are currently supporting the project.

We hope to have it completed before the end of the year; over half of the content has been shot already. In order to do this we need to be able to dedicate a significant amount of time and money to post production.

We plan to take this documentary to national and international film festivals, as well as having Auckland and Wellington premiers - inviting everyone involved.

We plan to put the money received from this campaign towards an editor, post production VFX (including titles and transitions), the final grade to be done at a professional post house, DVD creation and distribution and hire costs of premiering the film on the big screen.
