Profile image for Dave Gibson

Dave Gibson

Producer

Dave Gibson is one of New Zealand's most experienced producers. Under his command, company Gibson Group made programmes for local and international audiences for over three decades. In 2012 Gibson was made an Officer of NZ Order of Merit for services to the screen industry; in 2014 he sold his shares in Gibson Group, and began a four-year stint as Chief Executive of the NZ Film Commission.

We kind of like to make what we like to make, which is probably a strength and a weakness. From a business point of view it might be a weakness. From a point of view of having fun and lasting in the business and not getting burnt out and disillusioned, I think it's really important that you do things that push your button.
