Lovely dawn on Piha beach with Laura Sargisson directing the Mitre 10 team...
Good to see the word getting out with the launch of the interactive website that FCB created for The New Zealand Fire Service - if you haven't had a go check out the site here and see how quickly you could Escape Your House. Best viewed on your phone with google cardboard or the Samsung headset.
This Vice article has hit with some great background info from the Staples VR team and of course the guys who pulled it all together and did immaculate post work - Kaleidoscope. Shoot production by the Pacey Production Company ;-) Burning down a house definitely kept us on our toes!
Hope you spotted my cameo rocking the fire jacket on the national news site Newshub here too!
Vodafone Redline & Escape My House - were two winners on the night at New Zealand's own Advertising awards: Axis.
Super proud to have produced both of these digital campaigns - a brave new world indeed and awesome to get recognition for everyone's hard work.
Thanks FCB for letting me loose with all your rad ideas - and congrats for claiming the Gold for Tech Driven Creative along with the rest of the metal.
Big shout out to Curious Films for taking me along for the ride - great night had by all!
Terrifying experiencing a house fire with the amazing crew at the New Zealand Fire Service - standby for a hot 360 experience to be released early 2017
Great time working with some old friends - photographer Toaki Okano and his agency the Collective Force for Ryan at Degree Design, with Rob Achten as creative.
Shooting brand campaign for Booster financial services - motion and stills for market launch and ongoing online and print brand imagery.
Lovely crew, lovely talent, lovely shots.
Few behind the scenes from the awesome fun job with FCB and Vodafone - shooting the champion drifter Mad Mike Whiddett racing in a blacked out car at Rod Millen's Leadfoot Ranch in Hahei.
2.5mil views and counting - most successful social content post for Vodafone to date. They loved it so much they used it as a TVC too ;-)
My mate Maxy directed/DP'd with his mate Andy Deere - I jumped on board as shoot producer, working with Matt Noonan and the team at Curious (the talented Maxy is a Director on their books).
Best crew. Most fun. Ever.
........"I was blown away by the final shot. Tim did good." High praise indeed from our lovely local Auckland Airbnb host Vee Walker - it's great seeing the campaign still up around the city. Was a pleasure working with Vee and the talented Tim Barber on the NZ leg of the Airbnb shoot. Kudos also goes to Tim's agents at Supervision and the creative team at Airbnb. Everyone is loving the campaign down here!.....
....always love working with Matt Wilson and the boys at Kaleidoscope - here's the latest two in the series about Simon the Sloth & his family for LifeDirect. Thought up by the awesome team at Chemistry Interaction here in NZ. My kids are going crazy every time it's on the TV "look mum, it's our train toy!" .....every single time! Doesn't get old at all!
Vee Walker is the nicest Air BNB host you will ever come across in your travels - was a pleasure working with her on campaign stills for Air BNB here in Auckland in March. Beautiful imagery too, as the talented Tim Barber was shooting - can't wait to see the finals!Read More

Here he is shooting both stills and Directing broadcast for JWT NYC and Playtex - working with Katie and the lovely team at Cherokee. Stills and motion working in perfect harmony!.....
