How to call in Sick… (Entertainment meets content)

Last month I was dropped into one of my favourite places on earth, and was forced to have 4 days of fun, in a professional context.

Destination Queenstown and One Green Bean got me on board to front and co write their “How to call in sick.” campaign.

The piece turned out great, and engagement so far is extraordinary. Being pushed through mainly social media channels, “How to call in sick” is a great example of how to make great entertaining content that sells home a message.

This was the ideal job.

Trusting client, collaborative director, tight production. When those elements all fall into place that’s when the best work is done. The trick in jobs like this is for everyone to be on board to give license to each other to do what they do well.

I had a great time…. Hope you like the piece.

Stuff I Directed in 2012

You may be familiar with my comedy work on television and on stage, but what you may not realise is that being a comedian and working television doesn’t necessarily  pay the bills.

So when I can, I try to whore myself out as a writer/director for people with money who want to try and sell you stuff.

So here is a bunch of stuff that I made for various clients this year.

I really enjoy directing comedy, and because I’m a performer first and foremost I’m able work with actors on another level to get the best performances out of them.

This was a TVC that was born out of a buch of digital video content that we made for the now in administration “Game”… who still owe me lots of money.

In 2012 I got the opportunity to create a few little videos to help Clover Moore get re-elected. Tiny budget. Nice results.

GetUp! – Don’t Cut Foreign Aid
Writer,Director
Production: Motion Picture Company

We made a 90 second version to send out to GetUp! members then, we made a 30 second version once we heard that the government were going to drop the idea of a surplus. In some ways the 30 second is funnier.
