Cameron Duncan

Director

The work of promising filmmaker Cameron Duncan was seen internationally, after two of his short films were included on an international DVD release of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. Son of Auckland cinematographer Rhys Duncan, Cameron continued to make films while battling cancer. He passed away on 12 November 2003, aged 17.

You see a lot of work from young filmmakers and this kid was the real thing. It was stunning, frightening how clever he was at that age. Peter Jackson, on Cameron Duncan
