About me
I'm Ethan, an experienced focus puller deeply committed to precision and storytelling in the film industry. At 27, I have a solid five-year track record as a 1st AC in the camera department. My career began in drama, overseeing multiple seasons of TVNZ shows. After a feature, some short films and another drama, I transitioned into primarily pulling focus on commercials. Renowned for my keen attention to detail, I've become a sought-after professional. With a proven history of successfully contributing to diverse projects, I've earned a reputation for delivering exceptional results within tight deadlines. My adaptability and proficiency shine, handling various requests from DOPs and production. My work ethic is characterised by a collaborative spirit, fostering positive and productive relationships with fellow crew members. Whether on set or behind the scenes, I consistently thrive in a team-oriented environment, bringing a unique blend of technical expertise and human-centred connection to each production.
