The Film Crew Ltd

Joe Murdie


We are The Film Crew, a full service video production company based in the heart of the Southern Alps. We exist to make the highest quality, intent driven video, accessible to all.

We offer a straight forward, friendly and professional experience that delivers purpose built content with strategic distribution by means of post video production support, to ensure our clients get the most out of their video content.

The Film Crew was founded by film-maker Joe Murdie, a creative thinking, whisky drinking, Swanndri wearing guy, who saw the video production industry as dated, pricey and unattainable for most businesses.

Understanding that video was the way forward for marketing strategy, he set out to make quality video content affordable and accessible, whilst ensuring that the offering went beyond just video creation to enable businesses to make the most of their video content and achieve their business goals.

We are a new-era, agile, video production company, passionate about creating a world where high quality & strategic video is accessible to all, whisky flows like water, and everyone lives happily in cabins in the woods.

If you think that we sound like the right video partner for your business, or you just want to talk more about whisky, then get in touch!

Who's Hungry?

The team at The Film Crew are big foodies! This has lead us to work on more than our fair share of food related content.

Having filmed numerous TV series and commercial content for the food industry throughout New Zealand, Asia and the United States we completely understand the ins and outs of filming food and cooking.

Client Stories w/ Akarua

We love our clients! We love them even more when they love us back!

We get to work with such a wide range of people, businesses and locations, it really keeps things exciting. So it was an honour when Zoë from Akarua agreed to feature in the first instalment of our ‘Client Stories’ series.

This new series is our opportunity to showcase some of the work we do and hopefully explore, from our clients perspective, a bit of what the process is like working with us.

Thank you Zoë and the team at Akarua!
