Back Behind the Camera: Shooting the Promotional Film for “Amiri & Aroha”


Here I am at last, back behind the camera, shooting the Promotional Film for Amiri & Aroha at the Rere Falls.

What an emotional moment it was, back on location shooting a film after such a long absence! I was both excited and nervous in equal measure as the camera rolled on the promotional film for my new production, Amiri & Aroha.

Most significant of all, film making is again an integral part of my family’s way of life, with my children Mark and Rebecca taking part in the film.

I see in Mark a budding Peter Jackson. Mark has already made some very original and enterprising animation films of his own and Mark will be my assistant director on Amiri & Aroha.
