Cameraman / Producer - NZ Camera Hire Auckland

Hello - I'm Michael, founder and director of RUNNING PICTURE MAN PRODUCTIONS LTD, an innovative, skilled film and video production company with over 25 years experience in the New Zealand industry as well as international.
I also run Auckland based NZ CAMERA HIRE, and can provide freelance camera and sound people with equipment for whatever needs you have. We can film your project in HD, XDCAM, DIGI BETA, DVCAM, HDV, DV and AVCHD format. We pride ourselves on bringing in the right people and the right equipment to best enhance each project. The people we contract are chosen because of their skill base and for the strengths they bring to each production. We have excellent relationships with all our suppliers and are able to pull video shoots together quickly and economically. We at NZ Camera Hire are familiar with New Zealand and New Zealand culture, so if you are from another country, we are in a position to help you over the cultural hurdle of working here.
