About Film Construction

Two young men, armed with a singular vision and a hand-levered La Pavoni espresso machine, decided to take over a basement office beside a student pub in Auckland, New Zealand.
The year was 1996, and they knew this much – they were passionate about filmmaking, and partial to a good coffee.
Since then, Film Construction has grown beyond the bounds of a basement and into one of Australasia’s most creative and awarded film production companies with head office in Auckland, and outposts in Sydney, Singapore, and Wanaka.
Widely regarded as a nurturing home for filmmaking talent, dozens of filmmakers have called it home. Todays roster is a film family of inventive Film Directors, and energetic Producers.
And while Film Construction has always been passionate about filmmaking, we’ve never been more excited about things than we are today. With the explosive evolution of technology, we can now shoot in many formats, and for many different screens. We work with advertising agencies, direct with marketing and communications departments, as well as broadcasters.
And of course we work with offshore production companies wanting to shoot their projects in New Zealand.
Place has been specifically created to handle production services for offshore productions. As highly experienced line producers you can be confident that you'll be filming in the right locations, with the best crews, maximising your budget and getting the best onscreen value for your project. All whilst enjoying the delicious food, wine and coffee that New Zealand is renowned for. 
A competitively priced destination for basing your next offshore production with very favourable exchange rates. Making your production dollar go that much further.

Easy being Wheezy

Director Harriett Maire takes a deep breath and talks about her latest work for inhaler giant Symbicort.

"It’s always satisfying to direct a TVC for a product you use daily. As an asthmatic and a regular user of Symbicort, I loved this idea from the get-go. It’s not often you get the opportunity to approach a pharmaceutical TVC in such a fresh way. The crew were onto it; I was surrounded by an army of talented people. It turns out it is easy being wheezy when the team around you is this good!

As a director, I enjoy running the casting sessions myself. I work as a casting director when I’m not directing, and I find the two roles speak a very similar language. The casting process provides such valuable insight to a director - actors offer things up in the audition that you wouldn’t have thought of alone. It’s a two-way process. Their interpretation of the script is always different to mine, and it’s great to see what they offer up first before I give them any direction. It’s truly a gift to run the audition room and collaborate directly with the actors.

It was a satisfying creative challenge to shoot a night scene without hero-ing the colour blue. We got inventive when it came to honing the colours of Symbicort’s world. Fergus Cahill and Karl Saunders did a beautiful job shaping the light, and replicating warm streetlight tones from outside. The vivid, modern tones leant themselves nicely to the cheeky storyline (courtesy of the brilliant Duncan Blair) and quirky set dressing (courtesy of the wonderful Leah Stockton). It was all brought together skilfully by Pete Hanson - not only a master of the edit, but also the master of making multiple music tracks sound like one seamless piece.

Directing this TVC was a true joy. It was all held together by the fearless producer Leah Oram, who made things so easy for me. Take a deep, wheeze-less breath, and enjoy watching!"
