Bachelor of Creative Media Production
Space Mates is an animated sci-fi comedy that follows the out-of-this world escapades of a steely young Māori woman and her low-fi DIY robotic mate. The dynamic duo from Aotearoa are swept through space on adventures with the ultimate quest to reach the brightest star. With a corrupted taniwha hot on their trail, they are confronted by a mysterious and seductive button.
I'm the Head of Story, main character rigger, 2d animator and a storyboard artist on Space Mates. Being one of the project creators has allowed me to combine my passion for animation and my Māori heritage. I aspire to realise Space Mates as a series and bring more Māori themes to TV. I've learned so much on this project and want to keep improving my skills.
