Roz Mason

Director

Director Roz Mason has three decades worth of credits on television documentaries and TV series. She cut her screen teeth on TVNZ staples like Fair Go, Kaleidoscope and Crimewatch, before going freelance in the 90s. Subjects Mason has directed range from poets, drama students and assault survivors, to shipwrecks and sword swallowers — plus orangutans and pandas for company NHNZ. 

These days, a lot of my time is spent on Country Calendar. All thoughts of artifice and stylistic innovation are subsumed by what is surely the heart of the matter, simple, unadorned story-telling. In, out, simple, fast, honest. I bloody love it.  Did I mention, I can’t believe I get paid for this? Roz Mason
