I’m a freelance producer, director, videographer and editor living in Carterton, Wiararapa, New Zealand. My passion is the moving image and all things technical, so I combine them both as my profession. As well as producing, directing, shooting, editing and colour grading, I also have a small ‘no-budget’ equipment hire business called indieshootergear.co.nz.
Until recently I was a full-time broadcast editor and shooter working out of the UK. Over the past 15 years I have made films for all the major UK and International TV channels namely, BBC, Four, Five, ITN, Sky, National Geographic, Discovery and Animal Planet as well as numerous Opera and Shakespeare’s Globe international cinema releases.
On this site are some examples of my work over the years, it’s certainly not exhaustive. If you like what I do I am available for any sort of video project be it events, community projects, weddings, TV, promo’s, music videos or anything else that involves capturing a moving image.
“Sean is creative, focused, expert in his work, and a lot of fun to work with. We have now worked together in four continents, and I don’t know anyone else with the breadth and depth of talent that he has.”
Sean Hawkey, Photographer, Journalist, Green Party Candidate (Brighton, UK)
“Sean is both an excellent creative and technically minded editor. We have worked on many shows together across many genres. Sean is personable and a pleasure to work with. Comes highly recommended.”
Jon Lee, Director at Virtual Post (London, UK)
“Sean possesses two of the most important attributes one could ask for in an editor: Speed and creativity. He’s also a conscientious, enthusiastic worker with a great feel for pace, timing and narrative. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with him again.”

“In the two years I have known Sean, he has worked with me on various high quality television programmes both as an offline editor and graphics artist.
Immensely likeable with a ready humour that makes him a pleasure to spend time with, Sean also has many good qualities that stand out in the workplace; a quite rare combination of organisation, speed, enquiring mind and a visual, creative flair which he manages to fuse with the technical ability to achieve our aims, often operating under less than ideal circumstances.
This, with his ability to work extraordinarily hard and to totally apply himself to a task in hand, mean I would have no hesitation in recommending Sean, and working with him again myself.”
