Corporate - 'Ministry of Economic Development'
The It's not OK campaign is a community-driven effort to reduce family violence in New Zealand. Its goal is to change attitudes and behaviour that tolerate any kind of family violence. The vision is a community where each person believes there is something they can do to help and is likely to act when they know violence is happening. The Paeroa community is a perfect and very successful example of how this campaign can work and in January 2013, Nixon Pictures filmed a promotional video for client Borderless Productions.
Bruce just returned from the Chatham Islands, 680kms southeast of New Zealand where he filmed new episodes for 'Gone Fishin'.

Welsh actor John Rhys-Davies fronted this doco series about the history of the Americas Cup. NZ Producer Larry Keating has made a number of programs about this exciting sport that captures the attention of nations whenever it's held. Nixon Pictures client was Mediawave.
TV Live Broadcasting
Live TV is enough to scare off most camera operators. It requires a steady hand and heart! Over the years Bruce has filmed all sorts of scenarios live from 100m underground, to the red carpet - even dogs driving cars! End users have been CH 7 & 9 in Australia, TVSN Australia and Air NZ. Nixon Pictures films these events for NZ-based client Kordia.
