Bruce Morrison

Director/Writer/Producer

Bruce Morrison's extensive career as director, producer and sometime scriptwriter has crossed the gamut: from innovative arts programming and pioneer music videos, to the long-running Heartland series — plus feature films variously involving fast cars, riotous teens and a glamour-struck Donogh Rees.

The basic rules for making a film about rose pruning are pretty much the same as for any subject! That’s how I got my training: gardening [films], current affairs and making some of NZ’s first rock clips. Bruce Morrison
