Kristian Eek


Since making 2003 short Blood and Bone, Eek has worked in various production roles, including line-producing features A Song of Good and The Most Fun You Can Have Dying. In 2009 he produced ambitious short Manurewa. Largely self-funded, it won the Crystal Bear in the Generation 14plus section at Berlin 2011. Eek also helped shepherd shorts via the NZFC 'premiere' shorts scheme, as part of Robber’s Dog Shorts.

I truly believe that, apart from a great script, passion is the one thing that can make all the difference ... in a way it’s the most tangible thing you have when trying to make a film while, bizarrely, having any money at all can sometimes work against you.
