Last year Producer Adrienne Andersen asked us to create a documentary for the 10th anniversary of Aoraki Bound which is essentially a Ngāi Tahu development and leadership course. At some point the story turned into a much deeper piece and what emerged was a 30 minute story about identity, belonging and connection to the Whenua (the land) which all Kiwis should be able to relate to.
This was very much a passion project, shot edited and graded in-house. Ben Edwards from The Sitting Room did the sound mix. The full doc will be released shortly, in the meantime here is a teaser showcasing some of the images we were able to capture.
