PROJECTS I AM PROUD OF

PHOTO: CANTERBURY, NZ

 

HAYDEN PADDON
EV CAR REVEAL

Partnering with MA Media we filmed at a combination of locations around Highlands Raceway in Cromwell.  The video is the international release film for the new electric rally car developed by Hayden Paddon and currently has over 1 million views across all platforms.

GENLESS HAYDEN PADDON

We also filmed additional footage after the shoot above enabling MA Media to create a different version of the video for GENLESS.

BURKES METALWORKS

Burkes Metalworks wanted to showcase the 'old school' skill of their panel beaters and their capabilities as a custom car building workshop.  

MAINLAND MUSCLE CARS

As an ongoing project we are currently in the second season of our race recap videos for Mainland Muscle Cars.  The video to the right is the latest in the series.

ALLIANCE PAPER

'Make paper sexy' was the job description from the company CEO.  A week later of filming in their Brisbane based factory and we think we came up with something 'sexy'.

REARVIEWED - I30N

Filmed for the car review channel 'Rearviewed',  this video shoot was fast paced, dynamic and required us to think fast.  

APOLLO TRACE AND TRANSFER

Melbourne based Apollo bikes wanted to promote their new Trace and Transfer range on Facebook and their website.  After a flight to Melbourne our team got to work on shooting this video throughout the busy Melbourne CBD.

MAKING TRAX

Shot over one year,  this project kickstarted Jezza's documentary film career and is used to introduce new companies to the Making Trax history and mission.

SPOKE MAGAZINE PHOTOS

Spoke Magazine is considered to be the pinnacle of mountain bike photography in New Zealand.  We have had images published in the 'Gallery' section.  See the third image down at the link to the right.

ABOUT ME

PHOTO: SOUTH AUSTRALIA

 

Born and bred in the country I spent my free time on my grandparents farm before discovering mountain biking and starting a career in Bike Shops. I studied mechanical engineering and industrial design before getting distracted by filmmaking. My current production company, Extremekid Productions is all about sharing stories through film and photography with a focus on shooting ‘adventurous content for adventurous brands'. 

 

I work with companies, brands or individuals to help them to communicate messages or stories including documentaries, corporate branding/communications, social media adverts, instructional content, educational content or wedding films.  My background in engineering and product design is particularly useful when working on engineering or construction projects as we quickly understand the engineering concepts behind the product or film. 

 

My team can vary in size from one person to 5 depending on the job and we do travel throughout New Zealand or Australia as required.

 

Lately I have been enjoying learning more about Motorsport through working with clients like Mainland Muscle Cars, Hayden Paddon and Burkes Metalworks.
