TWENTY YEARS OF FILM INDUSTRY MUSCLE - BREAKING NEW GROUND EVERYDAY.
Two young men, armed with a singular vision and a hand-levered La Pavoni espresso machine, decided to take over a basement office beside a student pub in Auckland, New Zealand.
The year was 1996, and they knew this much – they were passionate about filmmaking, and partial to a good coffee.
Since then, Film Construction has grown beyond the bounds of a basement and into one of Australasia’s most creative and awarded film production companies with head office in Auckland, and outposts in Sydney, Singapore, and Wanaka.
Widely regarded as a nurturing home for filmmaking talent, dozens of filmmakers have called it home. Todays roster is a film family of inventive Film Directors, and energetic Producers.
And while Film Construction has always been passionate about filmmaking, we’ve never been more excited about things than we are today. With the explosive evolution of technology, we can now shoot in many formats, and for many different screens. We work with advertising agencies, direct with marketing and communications departments, as well as broadcasters.
And of course we work with offshore production companies wanting to shoot their projects in New Zealand.
