Spit & Polish Media Video Production Dunedin
These days I live and breathe digital media – it’s now my full time job. In recent years I have produced hundreds of videos, from weddings, event coverage, educational, corporate, promotional – all presenting different challenges and allowing me to expand my skills as a filmmaker. I thrive on the challenge of new projects and always take the approach to do something a little different than everything else out there. Instead of playing it safe and getting the shots to get the job done I like to take risks and go for those one or two extra special shots that people remember. Thinking big to tell stories that inspire is the philosophy that underpins my work.
