Film maker
keen to see
local entries

PAUL BARLOW in his element film making.
   Pirongia raised film maker Paul Barlow is hoping
to see some Te Awamutu area entries in the V 48
Hours film making competition, which he is involved
with running.
   ‘‘As a former local, I know the area has plenty of
untapped talent,’’ Mr Barlow says.
   ‘‘But as one of the few regions where media studies
isn’t taught at high school, it’s often difficult to find an
outlet for those wanting to get involved in media
   ‘‘This competition is a great chance to get involved
and potentially find a huge audience for the films that
get made,’’ he says.
   The V 48 Hours is the largest film making
competition in the Southern Hemisphere.
   Each year thousands of entrants take two days to
write, shoot, cut and survive the creation of a short
film which has to include three random elements — a
prop, a line of dialogue and a character — all of which
are given to them minutes before they start.
   Each team is also assigned a genre to work in.
   The teams are open to work in any medium — they
can animate, shoot on their phone, hire a high-end
camera, as long as the finished film is handed in on
mini-DV tape or DVD and in 16:9 widescreen it doesn’t
matter how it was made.
   Each film is shown in the heats and the top 12 are
shown at the regional finals (May 7 at the Gallagher
Hub at Wintec).
   From there the regional winner goes on to compete
for the national title on C4, and the best of the rest go
to Wellington to see if Oscar winner Sir Peter Jackson
likes them enough to be his wild card picks.
   Registrations close on April 9. For more details
email Mr Barlow at pawb3@waikato.ac.nz.
   Mr Barlow has been involved with V 48 Hours for
the past five years, which began after asking Ant
Timpson who founded the competition if he could run
part of it.
   He produced Hamilton’s first digital feature in
2007, called ‘Pictures of You’, and directed New
Zealand’s first English language youtube series, ‘The
Orb of Ra’ in 2008.
                                                                                                                                       Good Friday
   Mr Barlow has worked in various roles on film, TV
commercials and music videos over the years,
working behind the scenes on shows like National

   He attended Te Awamutu College before obtaining
a Masters in Film and Television studies from Wintec
and a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) from the University
of Waikato, where he also used to teach.

                                       LANCE FIELDER - DIRECTOR
                                       I was born in Te Aroha and was raised on a dry stock farm in Turua on the Hauraki
                                       Plains. I attended the local primary school and Hauraki Plains College, I played many
                                       sports and helped out on the farm at every possible opportunity. I particularly enjoyed
                                       rugby and was part of the Hauraki Plains College 1st XV rugby championship winning
                                       teams in 1995 and 1996. I also made several Thames Valley Representative rugby
                                       teams and represented Hauraki Plains College at the National Secondary School
                                       In 1997 I attended Waikato University and decided to pursue an accounting career,
           completing a Bachelor Of Management Studies, majoring in Accounting and Finance. Following the completion of
           my degree in 2001, I moved to Auckland to work for Deloitte and explored the field of auditing. I had the pleasure
           of being exposed to several big companies such as; Air New Zealand, Pacific Retail Group (Bond and Bond,
           Noel Leeming), Carter Holt Harvey and Spotlight Stores.
           After qualifying as a Chartered Accountant and 4 years in Audit with Deloitte I moved to Te Awamutu to work for
           Gyde Wansbone. Since moving to Te Awamutu in 2005 I have married a local Te Awamutu girl, Haley (nee Morris)
           and we now have two children, Annabelle and Max. I am now a spectator of rugby and enjoy the challenge of golf
           and having fun with friends. I am also on the executive committee of the Te Awamutu Chamber of Commerce and
           have taken up the role of treasurer.
            I was appointed as an Associate with Gyde Wansbone in April 2007 and enjoy working with commercial operators,
           tradesmen and farmers. Through my experiences of growing up in the rural community of Hauraki Plains, working
           in Auckland and my various team sports, I have the ability to communicate with a broad range of people. I believe
           my role as an accountant is not to simply crunch the numbers but is to work with you on your business and provide
           you with the knowledge and the tools to be able to manage a successful business.

                                                                             GARETH JINKS – ASSOCIATE
                                                                             I grew up in Bury in the North West of England, not far from Manchester.
                                                                             I attended Bury Grammar School, enjoying cross country running and playing
                                                                             cello in the school orchestra. I also played for the local authority Youth Orchestra
                                                                             which gave me an opportunity to travel around the country as well as in Europe
                                                                             to compete in competitions.
                                                                             In 1990 I attended Lancaster University, which has a renowned Business faculty,
                                                                             and completed a Bachelor of Science in Management Sciences, majoring in
                                                                             Economics. In 1993 after university I joined Hurst & Co, a small Accounting
                                                                             Practice in Stockport and completed the three years of exams and training necessary to join the Institute of
                                                                             Chartered Accountants in England & Wales (ICAEW). My time at Hurst & Co gave me invaluable experience of
                                                                             working with a range of clients, problem solving, providing taxation advice and carrying out audits, and I was

                                                                             In 2000 the world of commerce beckoned and I moved to be the financial accountant at Blemain Finance, a large
                                                                             independent finance company in Manchester. After two and a half years of great experience there, I took a year
                                                                             out to travel across Asia and through Australia and New Zealand. It was on this trip that I met Cath who would

                                                                             On returning to England I worked for United Utilities, the largest provider of power to the North West of England
                                                                             at their head office, before moving to Te Awamutu with Cath, joining Gyde Wansbone in 2005 and completing my
