48 Hour Film festival fun. Listen

This year I was invited to shoot this film as part of the 48 Hour film festival this year, and I was really excited to join the team with the talented director Paige Larianova, and her crew. Nominated for 7 awards in our region, the shoot was a blast and we all had a bunch of fun.

Shot on Sony A7R3 and a single hand gimbal, we needed to shot fast and fluid. That gave us the speed to get the amount of shots captured to tell this story in the 48 Hour time constraint for this competition. I captured the footage with a HLG3 profile in the BT202 colour space, which gave me a nice clean picture in the low light conditions to start from and I have to say even though I would have liked a Sony A7S2 or an Arri (anything) I was happy with what we captured. Graham our lead male and lighting guru did a fantastic job with the lighting setups.

I have to give a big shout out to the post production team, especially to Obi Wan Adobe (William) who really showed some amazing skill putting it together in the time frame available to us.

Here’s the amazing film poster from Consi who did our art direction and the graphics for the film.

I hope you enjoyed the film and I’m looking forward to working with the team again. We’re hopeful that we can develop this project a bit more and see where it leads us.

So long 2018 you've been a blast.

The year is coming to a close, and it's been a fun and exciting one, with one video for DairyNZ going viral with over 7 million views, it's been a bit mind blowing.

Creating an exciting documentary and some cool projects coming up for 2019 will make it a blinder of a year! Keep an eye out here for updates as things start kicking off.

Happy New Year to you all, and best wishes for 2019!

Beautiful Mapua

Traveling around this beautiful country is such a blessing, giving me a chance to recharge my batteries, refresh my eyes, and get out of my own head space.  Mapua had a break in the rain down on the new shopping and cafe area, and it's right next to the wharf.  It's such a beautiful and relaxed location.  I loved the cloud and water, the colours are fantastic.
