The face of the Canterbury Tourism commercials, Phil Keoghan. Amazing race exec producer, and 7 times emmy award winner. One inspirational, talented and quick witted man.
Over the past week I had a great opportunity to explore Canterbury and work in a new area of my industry, shooting TV Commercials. Amanda Jenkins, a Producer from AJ films bought me in as 2nd DOP/DIR on the week long shoot that covered a lot of Canterburys iconic locations. As with any shoot it’s the team that you work with that can make it a memorable experience. We had a great mix of talented crew from Australia and New Zealand, which combined with some good luck with the weather made for an amazing time. I had the pleasure of working with Callan Green who was DOP/DIR. A kiwi who lives and works out of Sydney who has a very impressive portfolio under his belt. If you’ve been following my facebook/twitter you will have seen some snaps from my phone, to follow this are some snaps off my camera below. The six commercials we shot will be played in Australia, combined with a 3 minute web video which tells stories from all the locations we visited. I’ll be sure to post that up here when its been through post production.
Possibly one of the best A Frames in New Zealand at Roundhill.
Nins Bin is amazing. We all left extremely full.
