Producer / Director
Hi I'm Celia, award winning director, producer & editor. With three decades of experience on set and in the field, I love what I do and I've found my voice in factual & narrative stories that are not only empowering but brimming with heart, joy and authenticity.
I live on a farm with my family near Wellington, and frequently travel around New Zealand and Australia or further abroad. Often found fast talking in anything from ball gowns to gumboots (not usually together!). Practically skilled, I can drive a tractor, fly a plane, fix a chainsaw, make a mean lemon meringue pie or direct award winning films!
Im excited to roll up my sleeves with other down to earth talent and see what fun, joy & passion I can bring to your project.
Entering the industry in 1991, I’ve worked for many international productions including BBC, HGTV, Animal Planet, NHK, Channel 7, Foxtel, CNN to New Zealand networks, TVNZ, Maori Television and Prime TV.
Over 1100 hours of director credits spanning 30+ years of experience across many genres.
Experienced Director, Producer & Editor in quality television & film production.
Efficient, resourceful and passionate about telling strong stories with beautiful pictures and sound.
Post production producer & editor with thousands of hours in post, to build on a vast and experienced background.
