It was great meeting multi-sport legend Steve Gurney (middle of pic) at this years Peak to Pub race. We filmed the event and had the chance to meet Steve during and after the race. I was so impressed with the event and Steve as a promoter and course designer. The guy is full of energy and totally passionate about multi-sport. Not to mention he is a really funny guy as well on and off the mic. If you get the chance to do Peak to Pub….Do ….your will love it!
Ashburton, New Zealand is now home to a new Guinness World Record thanks to BullRush Chocolates who broke the record for the world’s longest chocolate bar…. Yip a massive 14.58m long chocolate bar.

Epic promo for One Year To Go on Mt Hutt called “Shout it out, Spell it out, Run it out”. It is now one year before the biggest rugby event of 2011. This promo took 4 cameras, plenty of people, helicopters and of course Mt Hutt snow. Special thanks to Ashburton District Tourism, David Wilson, Verity Lydford, Mt Hutt Helicopters,Mt Hutt staff and of course Tony & Dan.
The beautiful view at the top of Mt Hutt, New Zealand. We were recently filming at the top of the mountain. I love the views from the top. So cinematic!
BullRush Chocolates are trying to break a Guinness World Record for the longest chocolate bar. I think it’s awesome that a local Ashburton business is putting our town on the international stage. Come and support the girls on Sept 11, 2010.
It was a pleasure interviewing Netherby Primary School today after they won the Innovation Award at FLAVA 2010. These kids are confident and full of life. The principal and teachers do an amazing job developing the creative gifting’s of these pupils. Well done Netherby Primary.
It was great filming for Sarah and Sophie Green at the charity fundraising event of Kids For Cambodia. The event was a huge success and children will get a new classroom and books. I think it is a huge credit to a mother and daughter who took a risk for the sake of poor and under privileged children. Well done!
Great time learning to curl at the Staveley Ice Skating Rink while filming an AshburtonTV news story. Those stones are very heavy and it takes a bit of skill to learn to throw them.
It was great meeting All Black great Buck Shelford this week for a news story. He’s actually quite a funny guy as well.
