Almost a year ago I had a few ideas bouncing around in my head about what I wanted to produce. My Alive in New Zealand series has always been something that I wanted to change and grow with ideas that came along.
Dealing with some pretty cool people I put the word out in video form of course about featuring people and a select skill set. No limiting it to one thing I started the filming process. It was hard, quite hard. Some things go according to plans, some things don’t.
In my first episode of this format I feature my friend Garry who I met through Thundercats. We then spent some time in the water as it quickly got cod for Winter and threw some ideas (and sticks for his dogs) around and came out with what I feel is a pretty good result.
The video below has the usual wrap up footage from a little while then Thundercat, Crayfish, diving, filleting and food chat. Check it below
As mentioned filming these has been surprisingly difficult and time consuming but I’m feeling charge to do more so if this sounds like you or someone you may know then get in touch.
Every month I try to produce a wrap up video of the month. I don’t usually achieve this and get considerably behind. Case in point, the latest episode that is finally live and is a bit of a stunner. Here you goooo
The segment this episode is named after doesn’t do New Zealand justice. Video never really does but we had a lot of chat in amazement about what we have on our doorsteps.
I didn’t realise I did so much diving in April until I had to go over the months footage. From swimming with a Great White to big Snapper and an active volcano, it was a hell of a good time! Check it out below
Sheeesh what a great time! As I rebuild this series I will be dropping the regular episodes as per normal. Find out more about the new series here.
An inflatable boat with a hole in it is useless as tits on a bull so in our efforts to put as much Thundercat related info out there we kicked off a tutorial series with a Hull Repair video. There’s no Bull or tits in this, just a solid tutorial about fixing your inflatable boat.
If you’re ahead of schedule then you’ll already be up to date with the other tutorials online. If not then get along to my YouTube channel here.
Well not quite dead but it’s been dying for a long time now.
I’m not particularly excited to make a TV show. I am however quite excited on the internet platform. Mainly because of the creative freedom and the pick and choose nature of it.
Right so to cut to the chase I feel you should watch the video first!
Right so if you’re into the outdoors or know someone who is then get in touch. I’ve already started filming so it’s underway. I want variety, action and good times. This is a really good opportunity for someone who wants to cross promote their platform or just want to see how much of a pain in the ass it is to film everything haha.
Please share this around if it sounds like a bit of you!
If you want to get in touch then email me firstname.lastname@example.org or one of the other hundred ways to contact me.
Early March and the Thundercat circus was on the road again, this time to the Naki. More specifically Oakura.
With only four teams in attendance, the title already won and a long drive the meant for tight racing and a great crew of people. The video came out great and I feel is my best work yet, it’s now the second most viewed Thundercat video I’ve made! Check it
