Some stills taken while filming our 48 Hour Film.
Here’s our final entry:
Our entry for this year’s Rialto 48Hours Film Festival. It was my first time joining this competition and I had such a blast - thanks to my awesome team, “Keep it Creeespy” and our talented performers: Toutai Palu (http://www.starnow.co.nz/toutaipalu) and Danielle Dwight. :)
Some production stills from our Rialto 48 Hours Furious Filmmaking journey. Watch our behind-the-scenes video below:
Here’s our 48Hours Furious Filmmaking journey this year! Thanks to the Keep It Creeespy team, the whole experience definitely became an enjoyable one. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the luxury of time to cut this video in a more elegant way. This is just a snapshot of what went on during that weekend. Enjoy our silliness.

I’m moving into the CBD in a few days! Here are some shots taken from one of my favorite cities ever…Auckland. :)
Some stills from Bonn and Lyra’s save the date shoot. The shoot itself was a lot of fun, but after looking at the clips it’s produced, I could say post-production is even more enjoyable! Can’t wait to share the finished product with these two! :)
A teaser for Bonn and Lyra’s pre-wedding video. :)

My journey as a DOP, Editor and Director :)
Currently in post-production for my end-of-course short film, “Safekeeping.” The film is mainly about trust and partly about temptations. It’s about entrusting people with something very important to you and having that trust broken and neglected, and how this can cause significant damages to people’s relationships.
My friend, Venessa and I have collaborated on making a video about how we spent NYE (2013). She’s over in Japan and I’m here in New Zealand. We didn’t talk about how we’d edit these together, or what footage to take. We sort of just winged it. And I’m pretty happy with the results :D Here’s to more spontaneous collabs! :-)
Ushering in the New Year, 2014!
Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year to all!
