We were there to film Shapeshifter as the act opening the Christchurch Town Hall with the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra. Here are a few snippets from the occasion! Full videos with be available via Shapeshifter’s Social Media platforms - keep an eye out for them!
A little throwback to HOMEGROWN 2019 now that we well and truly have our thermals on!
We did some filming for The Black Seeds + Shapeshifter of their Homegrown sets.
Much aroha + respect to these fantastic bands that keep delivering just what the crowds ordered.
It was absolutely incredible to go on tour with UB40 ft. Ali Campbell + Astro - and to experience the crowd going gently wild at London’s O2. Here are some of the videos we put together for the band as they made their way across the UK and Amsterdam. We’ll be jumping aboard another UB40 tour leg soon - stay tuned!
It has landed!
Our music video collaboration with Tunes Of I + Don't Panic Pictures is out in the 'verse and Happy has premiered it! We had a blast working with TOI. Thanks for having us aboard!
Thanks also to NZOnAir for supporting great New Zealand music.
Word from Happy on KISS THE SKY (Official Music Video):
"Ok, let’s talk about the new video from Tunes Of I… this thing is an all-out explosion of wonderful weirdness [...] I feel like I’ve just come off a really intense trip, but I’m not complaining. In fact, I can’t wait to do it all again."
Here it is!

Merry Chrimbo! Happy Holidays!
A special release just in time for fiesta season - the Official Music Video for the latest single from The Black Seeds "Everybody Knows". We filmed this on a stunner of a Wellington day.
Many thanks to The Black Seeds, Dawn Creative, The Makers Initiative + Wellington for their help in making this one heck of a feel-good, summer-vibing vid.
Here are some behind the scenes photos from filming the official music video for SHAPESHIFTER's new track 'Oculus'. We teamed up with the Shapeshifter crew, drone masters Aerial Vision and three amazingly talented dancers from Identity Dance Company Ltd. and went down to Christchurch to capture some ridiculously smooth choreography in some fantastic locations.
Keep you posted.
The official music video for The Black Seeds - Freakin' from their upcoming album 'Fabric'.
It was great to be working alongside The Black Seeds and The Makers Initiative again on a feel-good, 80s vibe, pumping track.
Dance + choreography from Hero Dance Company, Pump Dance Studios and The Company NZ.
We managed to capture an intimate performance of the new collective L(())VE + HOPE, filmed at Leigh Sawmill in front of a live audience.
LØVE & HOPÊ are Troy Kingi, Mara TK (Electric Wire Hustle) and Mark Vanilau. For this live performance, Iraia Whakamoe featured on drums.
Presenting The Nudge - Dark Arts (Official Music Video)
Premiered by RNZ Music.
Many, many thanks to the wonderful Nudge - it was such a fun, hassle-free video that allowed us to share our love of Great Barrier Island with you, as well as it's icy winter waters...
We spent two days on Great Barrier Island with The Nudge filming their new music video for their track 'Dark Arts'. We went from wetsuits in the ocean to crouching around a roaring fire with golden rune stones - it was a wild and fantastical visual ride.
Sophi got some scuba gear on and filmed the lads in a tranquil and deep rock pool, while Mark opted for a winter dip sans wetsuit! We filmed across Medlands Beach + were once again amazed by the beauty of the island. We were outrageously lucky with the weather and made the very most of it. Massive thanks to The Nudge for such a great shoot - this was outrageous fun + The Nudge were stoic despite the winter cold.
What a blast. The Nudge sure know how to bring pace + vibe to a music video set.
We have been lucky enough to be able to test-drive the impressive new green screen at Massey University (WGTN) and we will be heading off to Great Barrier Island to film The Nudge in some scuba-åction glory later in the month.
This video has introduced a lot of new material, new experiences + new gear into the Peach fold - we've been filming with a legitimate + massive green screen for the first time, working with The Nudge on our first conceptual music video collaboration, and shooting with some ridiculously good new gear. We've brought the Nikon D750, the Sigma Fisheye + Sigma Art Series 35mm 1.4 into the mix! We're pretty excited about the visuals + abstract videography we'll be playing with.
Massive thanks to Massey, NZOnAir + these fantastic lads.
We were in Wellington for Homegrown 2016 to film The Black Seeds (fresh from their tour of Brazil) and Shapeshifter. We worked with a NZVR360 rig and captured a VR360 view of both The Black Seeds and Shapeshifter performing. Both bands had outstanding sets for the huge crowds, and we were very pleased to be there to capture it all.
Here's the Homegrown 2016 Instagram video we put together for Shapeshifter.
We've been working with Jon Lemmon on his crowdsourced music video for his track "When It Came Along" - a catchy, uplifting new tune from this talented source of good-vibes. Jon asked friends, fans and family to submit footage of themselves dancing, singing or vibeing with the track. From 6 continents, and remote locations ranging from Machu Pichu to an ice sheet in Antartica, videos began to be uploaded. Beautiful videos, full of quirk, happiness, extreme dancing, costumes, puppets, pumice and whimsy. Fantastic. It's been really lovely and easy to work with Jon, and we can't stop bopping our heads with a beaming smile on our faces each time we run through a draft of the final video. We also went out and filmed with Jon on location around Auckland - with some charming results.
Two tiny pictures from our on location shoot in Auckland: street art, and ladies nestling in to a Pohutukawa tree.

What a start to 2016! We've been enjoying the Nelson sunshine and the company of family and friends in the lead up to the new year, and were asked to head along to Shapeshifter live at Riwaka. Thoroughly staggered (yet again) by the live performance these lads put on, as were the hundreds in the crowd. We put together a series of Instagram videos showcasing the visual highlights.

Talk about working with a professional - Louis was on task and hitting his marks time after time with his performance for our new collaborative music video project. Louis received NZOA funding to create a music video for his new track "Rainbow" and we were presented with the challenge to create a video that showcases Louis' powerful, honest and stripped-back delivery.
We made our way through seven locations in and around central Wellington, Carterton, the Tora coastline and Martinborough, filmed in streaming sunlight and torrential rain, and ambled along bush walks, beaches and shingle pathways. We're both really looking forward to putting together this video - more soon!
We have been travelling around the Wellington, Martinborough and Carterton scouting for the right filming locations for an exciting upcoming music video project. New Zealand - we've got to hand it to you. What a stunner.
It's so great to be back in Wellington, and check out the sunbeams Wellington put on for us. You really can't beat this place on a good day. We're here catching up with the boys from The Nudge (they'll be over in Bali for NYE), Jon Lemmon (who's working on a new mvproject www.whenitcamealong.com), the fine folk at Good Nature, and scouting locations for our next music video project with the outstanding Louis Baker.
Here we are!
