Whilst working as a Communications Advisor for Waikato Regional Council (NZ), I undertook production management of 11 videos in support of The Waikato Regional Policy Statement (Te Tauākī Kaupapa here ā-Rohe).
The RPS is a mandatory document that provides an overview of the resource management issues in the Waikato region, and the ways in which integrated management of the region’s natural and physical resources will be achieved.
By connecting people across diverse communities and jurisdictional boundaries, and supporting regional development, the RPS sets the overall regional direction for the Waikato by providing a sustainable framework to help achieve community aspirations over a ten year period.
It provides policies and a range of methods to achieve integrated outcomes for the region across resources, jurisdictional boundaries and agency functions, and guides development of sub-ordinate plans (regional as well as district) and consideration of resource consents.
The project took me far and wide across the Waikato and enabled me to work with a range of inspiring and dedicated professionals.
I worked alongside a brilliant video production company, 90 Seconds who have made over 10,000 videos for over 1,000 brands in over 70 companies. They know their stuff that’s for sure. BullsEye Prodctions handled all of the filming. A lot of my photography was also included.
Check out some of the videos below. They include discussions on integrated management, air quality, built environment, the coastal marine area, fresh water issues, geothermal resources, preservation of heritage, indigenous biodiversity, landscapes, natural hazards and soils.
