As a producer, Amber Easby has worked on acclaimed shorts, music videos and TV series. Her CV includes three consecutive Best Music Videos at the NZ Music Awards: in 2011, 2012, and 2013 with The Naked and Famous, and Lorde. Lorde's Royals video also won a MTV Video Music Award. Easby produced award-winning short 43,000 Feet and co-directed Kusuda, a short film about a Japanese winemaker.

Our filmmaking process very much mirrored the experience you see on film. Getting our entire crew to the Wairarapa on short notice, to then shoot in heavy rain and strong winds was challenging, but like [winemaker] Hiro, we had to give in to the weather and let it lead our process.
