About

Kia Ora koutou katoa,

It’s been too long since I updated this website. Over that time I’ve worked on the ‘The Deadlands’ TV series for AMC shudder channel produced here in Aotearoa by GFC films and soon after ‘The Sounds’ TV series Canadian Co Lab with SPP.

Since then I ‘ve cast for ‘Almost Paradise’ shot in the Philippines, a Docu-drama named ‘Mothers of the Revolution’ written and directed by extraordinary film maker Briar March with producer Leela Menon of GFC. That was quickly followed by another strong team of women creating the dramatised documentary named ‘Six Angry Women’. Both these will no doubt screen at our film festivals.

2020 started in a busy fashion and with a stream of productions lined up beautifully through the year but Covid Lockdown put paid to the perfect flow and everything  started to unravel. Suddenly  we weren’t sure of the future of our industry and many workers were feeling the stress of uncertainty. Within a few months we have managed to get most productions running but are still dealing with Covid which will be with us for a long time.

I myself am busy and enjoying casting two local films and a TV series that have a reasonable Te Reo content which bodes well for the future of this country and coming generations.

I wish you all good health and peace of mind during this time of Rāhui as our nation continues to live in a form of Lockdown be it level three or one.  It’s good to be part of a people who place kindness and fairness ahead of their own fears.

Piki te ora, piki te kaha, piki te manawanui.
