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.

http://www.geoffstevenphotos.co.nz/

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?

Lovely photographs in his gallery.

Seems a shame that a man with such talent is no longer part of TVNZ.

They need all the help they can get.

This blog doesn't need to reinvent TVNZ.

Sky TV will do that if it goes ahead with plans for a free-to-air channel to delay broadcast some of it's currently pay-to-view product like rugby tests.

No wonder TVNZ sees it as a hostile move.

TV3 and Prime must also be sweating.

Obviously someone thought he did not have talent but I guess TVNZ is riddled with internal politics and if ya don't get on ya move on out.

TVNZ won't worry. SkyTV is pushing the UHF channels to move all its paid subscribers to digital, where it can get more revenue. TVNZ will launch a digital service onto their own dish, and the only real competition four years from now will be in the field of DTV... analogue is on the way out.

Anyone that's ever worked in TV knows that people have their day in content/commissioning then move on; that's normal industry practice. I thought this webiste was meant to be for real debate...

Geoff Steven used to be a half decent film maker back in the 80s with a couple of feature films and a raft of docos to his credit. The sometime in the 90s he sold out and became a television wanker with long lunches and a clapped out Porsche.

There's a number of people in the industry who credit Geoff as being a major player in the dumbed down television we have today. He was moved sideways within TVNZ a few years ago.

Good luck to him in his new career... and good riddance.

Mr Steven did not comission Once were Wariors nor did he contribute to the production. While at TV3 he purchased the NZ Broadcast Rights for a small amount. This is probably the case with Scarfies and Stckmen. As for Popstars he was long gone before this appeared on the radar, let alone televison.
