Jeremy Macey followed up studies in Russian and German and work as a Moscow ad man, by directing documentaries on Jewish folk music and the National Youth Choir. After a development role at the NZ Film Commission, he worked on short films including the Loading Docs short Gina and the Berlin Film Festival selected I’m Going to Mum’s. In 2011 he co-produced Shane Loader and Andrea Bosshard's second feature film Hook, Line and Sinker. He collaborated with the duo again in 2016 to produce The Great Maiden’s Blush, which would win Best Self-Funded Film at the New Zealand Film Awards.
One of the great things about making film in New Zealand is that you get the chance to work with and learn from iconic veterans as well as giving opportunities to newcomers. Jeremy Macey interviewed by Screenz ahead of The Great Maiden's Blush premiere, 29 April 2016
