Chris Dudman

Director, Writer

Kiwi Chris Dudman studied film at Ilam and London’s Royal College of Art; his graduation short was nominated for a student Oscar. After working on arts documentaries in the UK, Dudman returned to NZ in 1995. Since then he has directed drama shows (the high-rating Harry), documentaries (The Day that Changed My Life), attention-grabbing shorts (Choice Night), and a number of high profile ads for his company Robber’s Dog.

"Affecting coming of age drama. […] Fine lead performances by Aaron McGregor and Pearl McGlashan locate this story firmly in the real world." Dominic Corry, 2010 Flicks.co.nz review of Choice Night
