Milton the Monster Hunter
Role: Producer / Co-writer
The pilot season of a new web-series where the heroes investigate supernatural happenings across New Zealand. The show was created with support through a successful Boosted crowdfunding, and in-kind support from Park Road Post (the company responsible for the post-production on many of Peter Jackson's movies). Stay tuned!
Created with the prize money from two 48hour film competition wins.
A stellar cast and talented crew totalling around 25 rallied around the project
Partnered with professional film industry institutions in Wellington, like Park Road Post.
The World From Above
Role: Staff Writer
The World from Above is a History Channel production now in its 7th season. It is a travel documentary relying on aerial footage and plays on prime time cable television in the USA, UK, Australia, and New Zealand. I no longer work for the company, but during my time with them I wrote 25 episodes, each 30 minutes long, focussing mostly on Europe.
Some of my episodes, including the one featured on this page, made it into the series "Top Ten" pick.
The show has wide reach across four countries
My episodes that ended up on Youtube are constantly raking in the views
This short was originally produced as part of the New Zealand 48hour Film Festival in 2012. The film won the grand prize in Wellington, beating out another 200 entries; and then went on to win the grand prize nationally, beating 1000s of other entries. The short still makes appearance on the film-festival circuit now and then
The short won a medley of awards, including best screenplay
$14,000 in cash prizes, and $25,000 in in-kind sponsorship
Garnering good reviews on the film festival circuit
Made again for the New Zealand 48Hour Film Festival, this short again topped thousands of other shorts to take the National Runner-up prize. Dealing with victims stranded in a collapsed building after an Earthquake, it was very relevant to the ongoing struggle felt by many in Christchurch.
It was the second time our team, Noise and Pictures, won a National Prize
Showings on primetime television in New Zealand, and showings in international festivals
The short didn't win any prizes, or anything of the sort, but I still like it.
