After polytech studies in photography and film, Fiona Gunter-Firth began working behind the scenes as a props buyer on commercials and TV shows. Gunter-Firth went on to a run of design jobs, including the lead job of production designer on Cover Story and cop show Shark in the Park. Long active in various screen organisations, she helped negotiate The Blue Book — a guide to working conditions in the Kiwi screen industry — while chairing the Wellington Technicians Guild. In 1989 she initiated the inclusion of technical awards in the local screen awards. Gunter-Firth has gone on to work in arts management.
I love creating as part of a team, working with all the wonderful characters on and off screen. I consider film to be the highest art form. Fiona Gunter-Firth
