From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:10 pm on 19 May 2016

Screenwriter Nick Ward has written feature films such as Second Hand Wedding and Stickmen, and also written for television dramas such as Outrageous Fortune and The Almighty Johnsons. But he may be best known for being the man behind the most viewed auction in Trade Me history, when he tried to sell his "demon" printer, which he claimed was possessed. Nick Ward talks about his career, and his masterpiece, which for him is Wellington's bucket fountain - a landmark that appears in his first feature film, Stickmen, and remains dear to his heart despite the fact his friends once pushed him into it.
