Geoff Jamieson

Grip

Geoff Jamieson was working as a mechanic in Queenstown when he was asked to help out on landmark 70s television series Hunters's Gold. So began a busy career as a camera grip on a run of classic TV dramas, as well as the ambitious shoots for movies The Quiet Earth and The Piano. Jamieson passed away on 24 May 2016.

Both Geoff and Vic were country boys who got the film and TV bug, and the New Zealand industry was better for it. Hunter’s Gold director Tom Parkinson, on Geoff Jamieson and Vic Yarker
