Earlier this year I had the chance to camera assist for Josh Wallace of Storyworks, New Zealand as we filmed a short comedy sketch for ABC’s The Weekly with Charlie Pickering.
Sam Neill is a famous actor best known for his performances in The Piano and Jurassic Park and is now typically found on his farm in Clyde, Otago, New Zealand. He was one of the first guests on ABC’s The Weekly when it first aired over 3 years ago and this comedy sketch was part of a celebration of the 3 years the show had been in the making.
My role was generally to mark each shot on the slate and help moving gear to and from locations, provide camera support by cleaning lenses, changing batteries, copying data, and holding the odd reflector when needed.
It was an gorgeous day to spend at Two Paddocks winery and Sam Neill’s farm and am looking forward to being on set of more productions very soon.
