Loading Docs 2018 - Kārearea

ROLES: Producer + Director + DOP + Editor

The New Zealand Falcon is more endangered than the Kiwi bird! This kid friendly documentary was made with as part of the 2018 Loading Docs and NZ on Air series, and follows the day to day life of falcon Fern, with her mate Diana on a mission to let everyone know about the plight of her species. It was very exciting to partner with the Marlborough Falcon Trust to undertake this conservation minded short documentary. 


Life NZ was my 9-5 for almost 5 years. In that time with the creative video production team I directed, produced and shot over 50 documentaries and creative video promotions. I worked along some awesome people but most importantly I discovered the true impact a well crafted video with purpose can have on people.

The Loyal Workshop - Kolkata 

The Loyal Workshop was founded to provide an opportunity for freedom through their leather products. Modern day slavery is a phenomenon they are not prepared to be apathetic about. They believe that business can be a tool to bring freedom to those trapped in slavery and it was an honour to partner with them in Kolkata, India, using my skillset in still imagery and videography.

International Volunteer HQ / Intern Abroad HQ

I was fortunate to team up with be International Volunteer HQ (IVHQ) and Intern Abroad HQ to shoot two very different promotional video's. For IVHQ I followed the winner of volunteer experience competition and her experience volunteering in Vietnam. Then I covered a range of internships available in Valencia, Spain. It was a pleasure being able to showcase the very unique oppertunites that both IVHQ and Intern Abroad HQ offer

Millennium Elephant Foundation - Sri Lanka

Millennium Elephant Foundation (MEF) is a non-for-profit organisation set up to care for captive asian elephants in Sri Lanka. Having the opportunity to go and spend time with this amazing foundation and the elephants they care for was an incredibly eye opening experience. I was able to film two promotional videos showcasing what opportunities MEF has to offer visitors as well as a short documentary, telling the story of the foundation and what they are working towards.
