Talking about local productions...
Via the comments:
Geoff Steven, the former TVNZ executive has now left the building and is trying to resurrect his photography career.
His bio page on the site says:
"As a television executive he has Executive Produced many of New Zealand's most successful and innovative programmes and series. These included launching the first international broadcast of the New Zealand created 'Popstars' TV phenomenon. He commissioned 'Once Were Warriors', the highly praised New Zealand feature film and the feature films, 'Scarfies' and'Stickmen'. He recently received an Industry award in recognition of his work in Executive Producing and promoting the documentary in New Zealand television culture."
Question - if he was so great, why isn’t he still working at TVNZ?
