Millet says: “Matthew brings a wealth of experience and expertise to our Screen Auckland team. Matt has worked as a locations manager, produced short films, documentaries and feature films, and was Development Executive and Industry Training Executive for the New Zealand Film Commission.

Horrocks says of the new role: “International production companies recognise that the combination of world-class cast, crew, locations and infrastructure that Tāmaki Makaurau offers, are amongst the best in the world. We have a can-do attitude and take pride in seeing our work screened around the globe. So I look forward to welcoming even more international productions to the Auckland region.”
