: New Zealand: AJ Films

Beautifully diverse locations, opposite seasons to the European calendar and a modest currency highlight just some of the advantages of shooting in New Zealand. AJ Films is a full service facilitation company located in Christchurch, the international gateway to South Island. Services include budgeting, casting talent, location scouting, styling, location permits, crews, car transport, equipment rental, catering, travel logistics and production management.

The company's producers recently worked with:

  • David Jones winter 2010 fashion campaign shot entirely on location in Queenstown, the Alpine Mecca of New Zealand, with model Miranda Kerr, Sydney-based photographer Hugh Stewart, and Saatchi & Saatchi Sydney.
  • World Gold Council and Leo Burnett shot with Juli Balla in Sydney in conjunction with the TVC shot with Filmworks Dubai and Jeff Darling.
  • Marie Claire Australia's January issue completes the tropical Fiji experience, shot by Steven Chee on location on beautiful Tokokriki Island with fashion editor Kate Harrowsmith.
  • The Decathlon winter campaign, published in January, was shot by Eric Matheron Balay in the mountains of the South Island.
