Aaron Morton


Aaron Morton began shooting music videos and shorts with director Jesse Warn, while working his way up the camera ladder on Xena:Warrior Princess. In 2002 they made their debut feature in Canada: moodily-lit thriller Nemesis Game. Since then Morton has alternated TV (Spartacus, Canadian show Orphan Black) and films, including two very different movies shot around Auckland: Sione’s Wedding and a remake of The Evil Dead.  

Shooting in sequence was actually a practical decision to help the art department. There is so much blood and carnage throughout the movie that shooting in sequence was the only way to protect the set.
