City Finals  - TBC

Your Auckland City Managers are Anneliese Scheck and Morgan Stewart.

Anneliese Scheck


I studied abroad and interned (under Co-Manager Morgan Stewart!) in the Auckland film industry back in 2014 and had been yearning to return ever since.

So, I recently quit my job at a commercial production company based in Boston, Massachusetts, packed my life into two suitcases and bought a one-way plane ticket to New Zealand. Pretty dreamy, huh?

Since my happy return to the Land of the Long White Cloud, I've been freelancing in production and copywriting. I am stoked to support Auckland’s killer talent in the HP48Hours 2018!

Morgan Stewart


I have produced over 40 music videos, commercials and short films including festival hits The F.E.U.C (Four Eyes United Club) directed by Aidee Walker and Stick To Your Gun directed by Joe Hitchcock, which they took to the prestigious Palm Springs ShortFest in 2013 and 2016 respectively. I produced the Make My Horror Movie feature film Deathgasm (SXSW 2015) and digital short film project K Rd Stories.

I have worked in film festivals, industry organisations, and kids’ TV over the years.

I've been involved in the 48Hours since 2009 including reaching the Grand Final with an all-female team in 2015. Life mission: don't be a dick, and make good shit.
