I have been directing since 2006 and adapting my scriptwriting skills across television, documentary, and drama. My strong on-set abilities were forged in years on the front lines of film and television - including four years on the award winning ‘MasterChef’, where I travelled internationally coordinating multiple camera crews in Melbourne and Singapore.
During this time I directed four seasons of the hugely successful TV2 show ‘Just the Job’.
In 2012 my 20 minute drama ‘A New Song’ received excellent audience reviews at the Wairoa Maori Film Festival.
The same year I directed the intricately plotted documentary about the turbulent life of iconic kiwi pop-rockers ‘The Exponents’ for PRIME rocks. It received superb reviews, was The NZ Heralds, pick of the week and nominated for TV guide's documentary of the year.
In 2013 I continued to apply my strong storytelling ability while field directing high profile shows such as ‘New Zealand’s Got Talent’ and Story Producing for 'MasterChef NZ' for TV ONE.
I am now directing a documentary for PRIME rocks about New Zealand's most rock n' roll band - Dragon.
I am now hard at work directing a documentary for PRIME rocks about New Zealand's most rock n' roll band - Dragon.
The Bat Country music video is done and the band and myself are stoked with it.
The Exponents Documentary is NZ Herald's TV Pick of the week.
It screens as a Prime Rocks Special on Wednesday 22 May 2013 at 9.30pm.
I've been shooting with the new Sony F5. It has great functionality (big buttons) and all the tricks you'd expect from a high end camera.
The talent even remarked "That's a really cool camera - it's really big".
I said "Thanks".
