Neil Stichbury

Producer

Neil Stichbury trained as a photographer. After a short stint directing for TV3 and Communicado, he began a busy decade making commercials with Republic Films partner Simon Mark Brown. His partnership with director Luke Nola resulted in a run of kids shows, including Let’s Get Inventin’, whose escapades spawned multiple seasons and overseas sales. Stichbury is now developing further screen projects.

The unbridled enthusiasm of New Zealand crews always amazes me. One day they’ll be shooting a high-end commercial with all the bells and whistles. Next day, on set at sunrise to get the truck out for a first time director on a no name band music clip with no money, in the pouring rain ... all with the same 110% attitude. Neil Stichbury
