So, a while ago I was engaged by Auckland production company Luke Nola & Friends to come on board as director for an educational series for The Ministry Of Eduction called ‘Soft Skills’. The basis of the series was framed around 5 teens from Manurewa High School who are each individually engaged in activities outside of school, which, unbeknownst to them, are making them really appealing to possible future employers. These skills are skills that cannot be ‘taught’ at school, they’re everyday life skills that the teens are unaware that they’ve developed. We spoke to some large corporates including Spark NZ, and AIR New Zealand, and they were amazed by the skills the teens have developed, and spoke about how their business models are changing, and how a degree isn’t required for some of their developing roles. They need employees who have a more rounded and holistic set of skills for their ever changing workplace.
It was a really great project to be involved in, really rewarding and fulfilling, so hopefully there’s the possibility of another series. I ended up coming onboard as the editor for the series as well, so it was all shot on FS7/GH4, and edited and tweaked in Adobe Premiere. The graphics were all hand made by the talented Ross Ozarka, and he did an outstanding job. Check the series here!
SO here we are. Its been a super busy past few months, and I’ve had a load of great projects on the go.
Wrapping a few things up right now but here’s a quick list of things that are about to be released.
- Te Hononga - A series on the ‘urban drift’ of different iwi from rural areas to Auckland. I was brought on as DOP/Editor, and this series is being produced for radio Waatea/Auckland city council.
- Soft Skills - You’ve got them - A series for the ministry of education about some everyday skills that young teens are using, that are super valuable to potential employers. I was brought on as the director & editor.
- Shimano X Nelson MTB Club - a couple of videos produced for NZ MTB magazine, on a recent trip to Nelson featuring the new group set from Shimano. DOP/Director/Edit
There’s a few others on the go too, but more about that soon, as well as a BIG announcement.
As usual I’ll be sure to post everything when they’re done!
So its come to my attention that I haven’t updated my website in a while! Argh! Needless to say things have been flat tack busy lately, so I’ll put it out there and say I’m gonna post an update THIS WEEKEND! A TINY bit of downtime before a very hectic week kicks off next week. ANNNDDDD I’m also aware that my showreel needs updating…again, the last thing on the list to do! Lol!
