If there hadn’t been a Sam Hunt where I grew up, I don’t think I would have found my way to the things I ended up doing. He was the living example of someone I wanted to be.
– Gary McCormick
Look with Sam you never know which comes first — the reality or the attitude to that reality.
– Colin Hogg
I have known Sam Hunt since I was a young boy. He used to take me out fishing on the Pauatahanui inlet, and he is both a friend and confidante. Each time with Sam is special, commonly Sam the raconteur would recount a story and this would develop into a poem. I had a burning desire to be able to share this experience, to capture some of these moments on film for others to share.
– Director Tim Rose
