Burma, Egypt and Antarctica

Hot Knees begins an epic series of work in the coming months. James travels to Burma in 32 days, Sahara in 72 and Antarctica in 97.

Our Burma trip sees us produce a follow up of sorts to our award winning dock, Altered Focus: Burma. Entitled Youth of Yangon, it will see us document the lives of three skateboarders in the city and a trip to the capital, Nayipadaw with the ever growing skateboard community.

The Sahara and the Antartcic see us journey to the end of the world as we continue to follow the Born to Run team on their 4 Deserts series.

Chile, Wine and More!

James recently returned from filming in the Atacama Desert with the Born to Run Team from Australia and went straight back on the road again with the WINERAM Experience doco.

James will be directing the remaining 3 episodes of the series and is currently finishing up episode 3 in Wellington before heading north tomorrow.

Our documentary, Altered Focus: Burma is now complete. We’ve been working hard over the last couple of weeks to finish the voice over and make changes to the edit and have now produced a final cut.

We’ll be providing details in the next couple of days and sending press releases out to maximise distribution and of course have a link up here very soon to view it.



Hot Knees has recently been asked to produce two promotional edits for the annual snowsports congress, taking place in Austria this year. The event is a meeting of all the countries around the world and a chance for each of them to showcase their snowsports industry.

Having been producing content in New Zealand for the 2010 winter season we were ideally placed to produce the required edits. You can see one of them here.
