Mad Mike blacked out drifting for Vodafone

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.

Airbnb campaign on Auckland streets now.....

........"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!.....

Simon the Sloth on screens now.....

....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 & AIR BNB.....

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!
