The world in one country!

New Zealand has an incredible range of locations within a very small country, about the size of the United Kingdom or Japan. The proximity of these diverse locations means you can shoot a vast variety in a tight time frame.

Snow-capped mountains, volcanoes, glaciers, and beaches. Farmland to forests, lakes, and rivers. New Zealand is also a car commercial paradise, and here at PSN NZ we’ve shot more than our fair share. Stunning rural and city backdrops and even a winter car testing track on top of a mountain.

There’s an added bonus for clients from the Northern Hemisphere with reverse seasonality. Summer runs from December to March, with long daylight hours and world-famous light. Winter scenes with snow on the mountains can be shot between June and September; sometimes even October.

We are not just a location destination. Our creative talent and highly skilled and flexible crews are another reason to shoot here. We also have the equipment you would expect from the country where Lord of the Rings, Avatar and Pete’s Dragon were shot.

And because we are a multicultural country, there’s a diversity of talent in front of camera…Caucasian, Maori / Polynesian, and Asian.

It’s a safe country with no corruption. English is the first language. Location permissions are relatively quick and straight-forward.

With so many reasons to shoot in New Zealand, it’s no surprise we’ve had the privilege of working with top-tier directors and DoPs. While we focus mainly on commercials, stills, and related content production, New Zealand does have very competitive incentives for feature films and TV shows that we can access for our clients.

Iris started out as a professional photographer before moving into the world of cinematography, where she has thrived for many years.
She was pulled, kicking and screaming, into the evil land of production because of her uncanny ability to get the job done.

[cont.] Her Austrian DNA gives her ruthless efficiency and professionalism partnered with the adaptability, friendliness, and easy-going nature of a kiwi.

She currently serves on the Executive Committee of the NZAPG (Advertising Producers’ Group) and is a board member of Film Otago Southland.

The founder of PSN New Zealand, Iris is a solution-driven, accomplished pro who has been in the game for a long time working with many of the world’s best directors and production companies. And it’s second nature for her to juggle her work with horse riding and the outdoors.
