Shot in New Zealand
By Duncan Petrie

The art and craft of the Kiwi cinematographer

The cinematographer is both an artist and a craftsman, combining a fine aesthetic sensibility and visual eye with a deep technical understanding of the properties of light, lenses, film stocks and processing.

New Zealand films have a reputation for their distinctive visual qualities - from the ground breaking works of the early 1980s such as Goodbye Pork Pie, Smash Palace, Utu and Vigil, through the acclaimed landmarks of the 1990s like The Piano, Once Were Warriors and Heavenly Creatures to current offerings such as The Lord o f the Rings, Whale Rider, In My Father's Den and The World's Fastest Indian. Much of the visual impact of these films can be attributed directly to the cinematographer, the creative individual primarily responsible for the look of a film.

Drawing heavily on in-depth interviews with a dozen of this country's cinematographers, Shot in New Zealand: The art & craft o f the Kiwi cinematographer profiles their careers and creative contribution to New Zealand cinema, charting their achievements, experiences and resourcefulness in dealing with often limited resources and the harsh New Zealand light.
