Your Dunedin City Manager is Miguel Nitis

Miguel Nitis

 

I'm Miguel, your friendly Dunedin Manager. I've been film-making for 13 years, starting with some pretty awful shorts if I do say so myself (They got better eventually).

Now I've made over 50 short films, music videos, and promotional videos while squeezing in a little acting as well. 

Otago and Southland are some of the most beautiful areas in New Zealand, so we have a distinct advantage over most of the other areas for cinematography.

Call me with your questions, let's get you into it!
