NIGEL HUTCHINSON is the executive producer

With a background in publicity, marketing and distribution in the UK film industry, Nigel Hutchinson came to New Zealand in 1974, where he established Motion Pictures, a successful production company focussed on television commercials.

Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, he directed and produced many commercials, winning a Gold Lion at Cannes and a Gold Cleo in New York, the supreme recognition of creativity in the sector.

In the early 1980s he produced the iconic box office smash hit Goodbye Pork Pie, directed by Geoff Murphy and starring Tony Barry. At the end of the 1990s he retired from making commercials to develop feature film projects.

He has continued his commitment to the New Zealand film industry by serving on the Film Industry Task Force and the Film New Zealand board. He is currently chairman of the Friends of the New Zealand Film Archive.
