Done the 48 Hour Film Festival again

This is the sixth time I have done the 48 Hour Film Festival.
What a rush!

This year I joined the Mad Scientists, Directed by Jullian Josland. We did the Ultra 48, and our genre was Science Fiction.

Ultra 48 is where we had to do a sequel to one from another year, so we did Uber Cyborg 2.0 (see Uber Cyborg)

Mad Scientists 2017

All in all, it was fun weekend for everyone

New week

Well it’s a new week: 38 of 52.  Almost finished on a client’s job.  It’s edited,
Here is the link:

Start in the right direction.

I was in Queenstown all last week, working for another company doing audio and visual for conferences.

It was fun.  The weather was great all last week

New Beginnings

Well, I am not at the Nose any more, I am working for another company on contract basis called Illegitimate Glow Worms. They provide for a lot of conferences in Queenstown.

A few jobs filming and doing web commercials. Will post once the clients approved the service.

What’s New

Well I don’t have that much to report, thinking about a getting my own camera.  I have bought a GoPro, so if you want to hire me and the GoPro email me on on director@swordproductions.co.nz or call me on 0800 FILMING (345 6464)

I got two quotes on cameras. One from a guy who was freelancing for Highway Patrol, and the other quote from Natural  History of  New Zealand.
