Join us for our THIRD Marlborough Entrepreneur Social, an evening of great networking, inspiration and support with GUEST SPEAKER Aaron Falvey.
What do you do when you want to live and work as a film maker in Marlborough? You create a film industry in your region.
That's what entrepreneurial film maker, award-winning director and producer Aaron Falvey did.
He has been passionate about film making since the age of 9 when his friend's parents bought a handy-cam. They started to spend their weekends making short home movies. Ever since then it has inspired Aaron to become a film director.
Aaron has been involved in numerous film productions as either a Director or Producer. He is best known for his work on the films Ascendance (2018), The Flame (2015), Alone (2014) and Outer Darkness (2014). Aaron has been developing his first feature film, Northspur which will be going into production late 2019.
When asked about his challenges, Aaron is pretty clear that it is difficult to live and work in a region without an established film industry. So what would you do? You create one.
As a result of Aaron’s passion for the industry, Marlborough now has its own local film infrastructure with a community to nurture film makers.
Clearly a change maker, in 2015 Aaron co-founder the Top of the South Film Production Society. It is a collective group of filmmakers from the Nelson, Tasman, Marlborough and Kaikoura region all with the same goal of forming a critical mass and making great films.
He also co-founded the Top of the South Film Festival, where local filmmakers can share their works with the general public.
Aaron is so passionate about bringing film productions to Marlborough that his successful pitch to council led to the establishment of a regional film office.
His vision is to establish a thriving film industry in the region to create employment opportunities for both cast and crew.
We hope you can join us.
