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.

Hear what our clients had to say about us

We’ve worked with them on a number of video case studies, showcasing our Business customers, and couldn’t recommend them more highly. From the initial briefing stage, through to concepting and production, the team added fantastic value and made the whole process so easy.

Cameron Owens, Senior Campaign Manager – 2degrees

We found them to be easy to work with – flexible, nimble and excited about our ideas. We liked that they were easily briefed, understood the concept quickly, and delivered the videos quickly and to a high standard.
