Jim Booth

An upbeat and hugely positive character, Jim Booth is best known as the Film Commission boss who gave Peter Jackson his big break. He later became Jackson’s producer, completing three films before succumbing to cancer in 1994.

His influence on me was so great, I know that for the rest of my life, every professional decision I make will be prefaced with the thought, 'What would Jim do now?'
