Our whanau, at ‘Mission Control’, celebrates diversity in age, race and gender. We love learning from each other and having a broad range of perspectives that feed into our projects. We are active about our social values, creating and sharing content in support of kaupapa that promote equality and sustainability.

Flexibility and inclusivity are key to everything we do and we are lucky enough to have an extensive directory of well established and award-winning crew that feel the same way. 

Since 2015 we’ve earned the reputation for being endlessly adaptable, with the ability to deliver everything from full-scale productions to small, single-crew shoots with fast turnarounds.
