Projects in Production
We’ve been shooting a behind the scenes doco on Lennie Hill’s very special independent feature Umbrellaman (Te Nati Cinema) that is now in the cutting room.
We helped Hiona Henare of Blanket and Musket Productions to shoot her doco Native in Nuhaka in both digital and Super 8. This is our atmospheric Super 8 reel for transitions processed by Ian Powell’s Reversal Lab.
FRAGMENTS OF THE GREAT SOUTH ROAD: An Auckland anti-journey in space and time, on one road.
This is a promo for a proposed non-narrative experimental documentary by filmmaker Paul Janman and poet/blogger/sociologist Dr. Scott Hamilton. We are currently only in the research and pre-production phase of the project at the moment. Dependent on funding, we aim to produce it in episodes in 2015 and we invite comments and video contributions from viewers, which will guide the form of the final film or become part of it. Send us your Great South Road Stories!
More info on Scott’s blog here. Have a look at the google maps itinerary below to see some of the places that we are particularly interested in.
