Work History

Writer, Producer, Director

Moemoea Movie Studios Ltd.

From November 2013

Moemoea Movie Studios is a Limited Liability Company I set up at the end of 2013. Moemoea is the Maori word for 'Vision'. My vision is to create a financially & creatively successful independent Maori Film Company based on the values and principals of Tikanga Maori, those being: Manaakitanga (Caring)...Caring for the inherent essence of my work, be it Films or Documentaries. Whakaute (Respect)...Showing the utmost respect to both people and my films. Aroha (Love)...Loving what I do and the people I deal with, my cast, crew, and of course the viewers of my films. For as the Maori whakatauki (proverb) says, 'He aha te mea nui o te ao? He tangata, he tangata, he tangata...What is the most important thing in the world? It is people, people, people.

Projects

Short Film - A Dignified Life

A DIGNIFIED LIFE is, in essence, a short film about the tragic nobility of an adolescent dying of leukaemia and the poignantly beautiful love she shares with her Granddad...told with warmth, humour, love and deep abiding sorrow. Melissa Kapo, a 14 yr old girl, is dying of leukaemia. Her Dad has passed away and she only has her Granddad, Timothy Taylor, as the one constant male figure in her life. Her rock. Her strength. They are inseparable...bonded together in love. Melissa loves her Granddad dearly and looks upon him with Don Quixote eyes...not as he really is, but, how she dreams him to be. Timothy, in return, loves Melissa dearly. And to encourage her in what could be her final days; Timothy tells her heroic stories of his daring deeds as a young man. But…deep within the inner recesses of Timothy's soul and behind the daring stories he tells her...there lurks secrets...ones which will be kept hidden from Melissa until the very end.

Feature Film - Destina

Destina is a powerful Feature Film which I wrote, produced and co-directed. It is a powerful character driven script, with strong themes of redemption and forgiveness, where each character is linked together by a brutal crime, yet have to journey alone to seek the answers they find.
