Documentary making is our passion. Be it a personal ambition or part of someone else's desire to tell the world their story - we will listen, shoot and give it all the attention it deserves.
We had great faith in Ryan Millen's driving skills during the Taupo 1000 off-road race in 2007... we had to in order to get the shots that American director Jeff Zwart wanted! So here we were, in the middle of winter and in the middle of the North Island of New Zealand. Needless to say it was freezing - just ask soundie, Al Seconi, who had to use a credit card to scrape the ice off his Landrover windscreen one morning in order to find the event!
It was one of the most enjoyable big crew productions I've been involved with, thanks to Maria Cowley who coordinated the NZ and American crews. Craig Wright - another NZ camera operator was randomly dropped off via helicopter in isolated positions around the course and fell off the radio grid, only to miraculously reappear again at each evenings wrap! Al and I were able to commandeer a golf-cart and cut backwards and forwards through the forest to the best vantage spots. So naturally we took the director's daughter with us!
The final film, Two Roads to Taupo went to air on ESPN in the footsteps of it's successful predecessor, Two Roads to Baja.
...or what went on behind the camera.
