Several months back I worked with Chinese Director Jai Li on a Toread commercial shot in Queenstown. The feature starred Chinese actor Shia Yu, whom I had also previously worked with. As DoP, I shot the majority of content on the Sony Fs7 on both a tripod and Ronin before it was edited in China.
The commercial is now available online and showing in and around China on their social media.

The US Ski Team were training in Queenstown and Wanaka recently with their sponsor LL BEAN.
James was brought on board through location producer, Philip Turner (thesearch.co.nz) to work alongside Tony Young (helicamfilms.com). With Tony providing drone coverage, James was responsible for standard camera coverage, hand-held and on a tripod.
The edit should be out in August and we’ll put it up in our branded content section once it is.
James was brought onboard by Diaries Down Under to film the majority of the behind the scenes video. This involved traveling to Arrowtown and the Remarkables with Producer Nick Hyne to document the installation of the long term time-lapse devices, The Sentinel. Watch the videos below.
Owners Paul and Katherine Mitchell have been long time friends and we’re excited to be producing new content for them for use on their website, info centres, trade shows and more. Click for more info and a photo gallery.
We are thrilled to have tendered for and won the contract to produce new content for Skyline Enterprises, Queenstown.
Working together with both Tony Young and David Oakley providing drone filming, James has been directing, filming and editing new content.
Filming has been delayed substantially with some interesting weather patterns coming through the region but with three days completed with several different sets of models, one day remains before editing begins.
