Kate Fletcher

I have been involved in television and film production for over 29 years working in many different genres including; natural history documentaries, pop promos and concerts (with multi-camera OB units), reality programming, factual documentaries and entertainment series, dramas, short films, commercials, web-broadcasting, magazine programming, computer gaming and live sporting events. I spent 23 years living in London and returned to live in New Zealand ten years ago. Since 2013 I have been a Production Manager at NHNZ in Dunedin. During that time, I have production managed over 33.5 hours of programming, working on blue-chip natural history documentaries and factual documentaries as commissions and for a variety of international co-producers including PBS, Arte France, ZDF, CCTV, CICC, SMG (China), NHK, Universal, Nine Network, National Geographic Wild, Discovery (UK and US) and France 5 amongst others. I’ve managed budgets of over 8 figures and several programmes I’ve worked on have won international awards.
