Kahawai Productions had been following Mike Noonan for over three years as he built a motorcycle in his garage with the aim of breaking a land speed record at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. This project was completely self-funded and when time came to fly one person to film the record breaking moment the costs were to high. I presented Kahawai with a crowdfunding plan that would cover those costs and help finish the film. The crowdfunding campaign was a success due to the generous and passionate community following brought on by the protagonist, Mike Noonan. We raised over 200% of the budget required to fly me to Utah to capture Mike setting a new land speed record of 124.114 mph.

When Graphics Artist, Paul Jones asked if I wanted to film a short video about Electric Vehicles. I didn’t realise we would be turning it into a fledgling web series. I knew very little about EVs and discovered that I wasn’t the only one. Most people are confused and misinformed about how EVs really work. So we set out to dispel the myths and show how every day Kiwis are taking up EVs to get to work and get work done. Charged as is a short form web series in its early stages.
