Graeme Tetley

Graeme Tetley began his long scriptwriting career with Vigil, one of the most acclaimed New Zealand films of the 80s. He went on to co-create police show Shark in the Park, collaborate extensively with director Gaylene Preston (Mr Wrong, Bread and Roses), and co-write Out of the Blue, the story of the Aramoana massacre. Tetley passed away in March 2011.

Film is collaborative. Being able to manage that collaboration is as important and as difficult as being a good writer.
