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.:
Nature and wildlife
Nature and Wildlife means everything to us and is our biggest passion. With our video's we try to create interest and inspiration within others about the amazing planet we live on. We want to help individuals and organisations that work in the area of nature and wildlife conservation to help tell their important stories.

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!

Short Docs and personal stories
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.

Diving for Shark Conservation
We want to help get stories about amazing natural phenomenons or individuals that put all their passion in to make a difference. This a story about The Shark Dives in Pacific Harbour, Fiji. These dives are contributing to healthier reef systems as the numbers of sharks rise in these area's due to this activity. Since the business started the state of the reefs has improved dramatically and the whole community has profiting from this long term sustainable business model. But everything starts with the people who dare feed the sharks who are feared by so many.
