On-Set of Hightail

Bachelor of Creative Media Production

Hightail is a 13 min. short film that follows an ex-military father on a road trip with his young son through rural New Zealand. The road trip isn’t what it seems, however. This is a pair of outlaws on the run, committing armed robberies at rural business along the open road. Karma eventually catches up to the wanted duo, and ultimately recklessness leads to their demise.

The Editor for Hightail, I'm an emerging filmmaker passionate about crafting compelling stories through the marriage of striking visuals and dynamic editing. Something I love about editing is the challenge of capturing and executing a creative vision to the highest standard. This in mind, Hightail has been my most challenging yet rewarding project to date.
