Miles - it was great to meet you awhile ago at the A&P show with Jezza and Muel.

I thought I'd share a few of my films with you to help alleviate the boredom of the latest lockdown.

A few include Muel and Jezza.

PROJECTS WE ARE PROUD OF

PHOTOGRAPHY

A selection of photos from our recent projects:

KOPIKO

A film about the 1000km+ gravel cycling journey across the North Island and the people that complete it each year.

MAKING TRAX SERIES - JEZZA

Filmed on the fly with no planning or control over the situation,  this project was all about promoting inclusive tourism in New Zealand.

We utilized all our skills at moving fast and building a film on the fly while also working around the tourism operators during their normal operations.

We also shared a lot of this footage with ABC National News in Australia to be part of a piece on Making Trax and inclusive Tourism.

MAKING TRAX - THE STORY

A film about Jezza Williams and how the Making Trax movement began.

FORGOTTEN HIGHWAYS

Teaming up with Deane Parker we were a major contributor to every aspect of the Post Production process for Forgotten Highways,  the film Deane shot in the north island of New Zealand.

FLUID TRAILS

500km with mountain bikes and packrafts around some of New Zealand's pristine bushland.  This trip, conceived years ago will be a challenge for both the experience backcountry expert and the relative beginner alike.

The concept is simple,  grab a raft and a bike and use as much singletrack as possible to join the major rivers in the north of New Zealand's South Island.

ABOUT ME

Born and bred the country I spent my free time on my grandparents farm before getting into mountain biking and working in Bike Shops.  Before becoming a filmmaker, I studied mechanical engineering and industrial design before getting distracted by filmmaking. Extremekid Productions is all about sharing stories through film and photography with a focus on shooting ‘adventurous content for adventurous brands’. 

 

We work with companies, brands or individuals to help them to communicate a message 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.

 

I do my best to use commercial jobs to enable me to share community based stories, especially those who wouldn’t otherwise be told.

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.
