Writer

Andrew Gunn spent 13 years working for TVNZ’s Children’s Unit. His writing credits range from extended contributions to What Now! to 1998 award-winner The Beginner’s Guide to Space Travel. In 2009 Gunn (who is brother to entertainer Jason Gunn) co-wrote trolley derby tale Kiwi Flyer with director Tony Simpson. 2014 saw his second feature 3 Mile Limit, based on the early days of pirate station Radio Hauraki.   

The most challenging thing was making sure that this was more than a movie with comical gags, stunts and action. I’ve worked in children's television for many years so I'm used to that sort of stuff, but to make the movie more cinematic we had to give it a heart and a spine and something with a little more depth.
