An overview of the different types of projects we do. We focus on showing the inspiring beauty of nature. Parks, wildlife, landscapes, coastlines, oceans and mountains. And we help organisations and individuals that put all their energy in a sustainable society and a better and healthier natural environment with telling their story. Have a look at some of our work and get in touch with us with questions or to get a quote. Here an overview of some of the beautiful creatures we are lucky enough to share this planet with that we have come across both in New Zealand and in other places.:
Sustainable Business and NGO's
We create video's for organisations, companies or events to help tell and share their important stories. This video is about the cooperation of two great Organizations. Honeywrap who creates Organic Bee wax wraps to wrap up your food and cut plastic wraps. And Forest & Bird a leading New Zealand Nature Conservation Organization. Together they created a wrap with a beautiful design full of beautiful but endangered New Zealand Bird Species. A dollar from every sold wrap goes to Forest & Bird and the wrap launch was also used to create more attention for the "Bird of the Year election 2019", a yearly event by F&B to help raise awareness for NZ Bird Species!

We helped our friends from Yarn Creative to produce this campaign video for Sustainable Coastlines. This New Zealand based NGO challenged people around NZ to share online how they connect with nature. A fun and inspiring campaign to help reflect on and celebrate the amazing role Nature plays for many of us.

Short Docs and personal stories
Saving New Zealand's Unique Reptiles
We directed this video about Dylan van Winkels big mission: Saving the amazing reptiles of New Zealand. He wants to show as many Kiwi's as possible how mindblowingly unique our reptiles are in the world and why they're worth protecting. And what we can all do to help protect their future. We created this video in cooperation with Yarn Creative

A Conservation Succes Story
This a short Doc we created in cooperation with Matt Silcock of Digital Flight Productions about Michael Watson, guide on the "Bird Conservation Island" in New Zealand, Tiritiri Matangi. Turn your volume up at the start🤘
Michael is one of the younger guides on the island and has been educating the public, including many kids about the beauty of New Zealand Wildlife and Plant life that can be found on this remarkable little island. The tremendous passion that he and his colleague guides have for "Tiri" is incredible and inspiring to see. I It was a fantastic experience to see "Tiri" through his eyes.

We created this video showing the various courses Auckland Scuba Dive Centre in Albany offers and what scuba diving in New Zealand has to offer. As you can see it was a terrible job for us to film them having to follow them to the most breathtaking area's in New Zealand.

And here in NZ 1st place Oakura bowl in 2018-2019 and 1 place Bowzilla Wellington 2020).

They have a platform called "Webothonboard" with which they want to spark the same fire in other people too! With photo's, video's, lessons and more!
They hope to inspire many to pick up a board too and experience the same sensations and develop a passion for boarding and the planet just like they have. "Play hard! Protect hard!
In this video they share their experiences and show some of their tricks. They explain how boarding teaches them to be thankful for the amazing places they get to see and board in and how it makes them want to look after this beautiful planet.

Searching for the Large Bellied Seahorse in the city
We love shooting under water as much as on land.This is a story about how a coincidental entounter of a Large Bellied Seahorse in the city led to a search to find it back again to take some good shots. Seahorses are still free to fish up for who ever feels like it here in NZ but not many people know that. We created this clip to give them more attention.

Inspiring future generations:
For Kelly Tarlton's Sea Aquarium we created a a collection of short clips to help them promote their inspiring Youth Programme called "Ocean Youth" . Through this programme young Aucklanders learn an enormous amount of new things about their Marine Environment and about how they can help protect it. They also engage in several fun and spectacular activities throughout the year. This is one of the clips we've created.
