In development is a film that tells the story of Pulitzer-winning kiwi-born war correspondent Peter Arnett, as he takes us back to the killing fields that were his office for 35 years where he lived the biggest news stories of the day, wielding a pen and camera that rattled windows all the way to the White House. We are raising funds right now to get to China with our crew.

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'.
Corporate 'Shadow A Leader'
On 10 July 2013, Shadow a Leader, matched 52 business leaders, 52 AUT Faculty of Business and Law students and 52 secondary school students from 30 schools across Auckland into teams of three, so that students could each “shadow” a business leader for a day. The aim of Shadow a Leader is to give to Auckland secondary school students and AUT Faculty of Business and Law students the opportunity to follow a business leader for a day and to understand what it takes to succeed in the leader’s field of endeavour.
