Waitemata Films co-founder and Executive Producer Johnny Blick is departing New Zealand for a new life in London. “My wife is English and we’ve had a long standing agreement that one day we would return to London and that ‘one-day’ has arrived”, says Blick. “However, more importantly, we are very happy to announce that Julie Elstone will take over the helm as Executive Producer at Waitemata Films”.
Julie needs no introduction to the local industry having been EP of Silverscreen Australasia and more recently 2011 Axis production company of the year Capital City Films.
“I’m thrilled to be working with the Waitemata team. Peter Burger & Rob Sarkies both have longform drama projects booked for 2014, so when the Waitemata Boys made contact it was perfect timing. I’m looking forward to working with Directors Mike Oldershaw, Gary John and Jamie Campbell and continue to develop their work” says Elstone.
Co-owner Mike Oldershaw adds, “We are stoked Julie is on board. Her wealth of experience is phenomenal, she’s great fun and passionate about film-making so we are delighted she’s joining us.”
The roster of directors has been refined to refocus on our commitment to being a performance based film company.
We look forward to an exciting year ahead as we continue to make traditional TVC’s and our ever-increasing digital content workload.view more - Hires, Wins & Business
