Joy, myself and our, then, sixth month old Elias, flew to the UK during the worst winter Britain had experienced in 30 years for Christmas with Joy's family in Leeds. The trip included a drive down to London for my interview with TV3's European Entertainment correspondent Kim Chisnell about "The Love Game" winning the Bflix competition. It was great having them there and adds to Elias' total of key events he's been present for with "The Love Game": from being on set during the filming when he was only a week and half old, to being at the premiere, the Hampton's International Film Festival, The Tribeca Screenings right up to the awards night and now an interview with one of my favorite NZ TV channels. Something I will tell him about when he's older for sure! Click here for the online TV3 article:
I was interviewed on Newstalk ZB's Sunday show, "Real Life" recently. The program has been "the top rated show for its time slot nationwide for the last six years."

I was riding a cab the other day and this advert popped up on the Taxi TV for the BFLIX promotion at Bloomingdale's. My film "The Love Game," is the first clip in the sequence.
The BFLIX five had a screening of their films at the 2009 H.I.F.F followed by a panel discussion titled "New Approaches to Reaching an Audience" with Directors Andrew Hunt, Amy Redford, Antonio Campos and actor Steven Lin. Moderated by the legendary John Sloss. Above are some photos from the event including a video of the panel session.
This was during the promotional period of the nationwide BFLIX competition sponsored by Bloomingdale's. Four of the five directors and one of the actors came together in a panel at Tribeca after the screening of all five films. It was a fun night.
Thank you to Erica Swallow and Bradden Young who took the above photos and video of the evening.

In 1998 Andrew was sent out to Cairo, Egypt along with another consultant, David Adams from OCMS in Oxford, to meet with local writers, directors and producers who pitched them story ideas which they were then asked to critique. The work was commissioned by the Arab Broadcaster Sat-7.
In 2004 Andrew was sent to Amman to give two lectures on film and communication and consult on a film development project.
Had the privilege of traveling down to Jackson, Tennessee to speak during Union University's annual film festival and judge some of the students work. It was a blast and there were some impressive films on display.
