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
