NZCS Cinematographer-at-Home Webinar Q&A #2:
An approach to local feature length production with David Paul NZCS
David will discuss his approach to telling local stories using his unique cinematic style and ingenuity, and how to make the most of a sometimes challenging budget.
Highlights of David’s career in the early 2000’s included Wellington based TV series The Tribe, The Insiders Guide to Love, and The Insiders Guide to Happiness where he developed a solid reputation for innovative and ground-breaking cinematography.
One of his favourite telemovies to shoot was Until Proven Innocent (2009) - a local tele-feature about the David Dougherty case. Other standouts were the Tangiwai (2011) tele -feature about the train disaster, and then Field Punishment #1 ( 2014) - the Archie Baxter conscientious objector story. 2016 saw David shoot the Hillary tv series and Doubt: the Scot Watson Case which all received critical acclaim
Why Does Love about the NZ band the Exponents was a great chance in 2017 for David to pursue different looks for different eras, and the tv movie Kiwi about a racehorse was one of the highlights of 2018.
This is just a snapshot of the amazing contribution David has made to telling compelling NZ stories for a NZ audience. Often producing amazing results with scant resources compared to international productions, David Paul NZCS will share the creative, technical and emotive approach to his shooting style and his collaboration with production designers and directors, and will answer questions in a casual forum.
