Tātaki Auckland Unlimited is Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland’s economic and cultural agency. Committed to making Auckland region a desirable place to live, work, visit, invest and do business.
Part of a ten-year smart energy partnership between Vector and Auckland Council, Vector Lights is an experience and a destination, giving Aucklanders a focal point for celebration and recognition.

The objective was to capture high-quality video and photography to use to showcase the beautiful Vector lights and SkyTower light show to celebrate New Years Eve. The footage was broadcasted on TVNZ durning the televised New Years Eve countdown. 


Auckland Council and Auckland Unlimited came to us with the request to capture the Auckland Harbour Bridge lightshow. Due to COVID-19, there was no fireworks on the SkyTower this year and they had moved the celebrations to the bridge in form of a lightshow.

We got the reputable drone team from Ariel on board to help us capture dynamic shots of the Waka Hourua, Auckland Harbour bridge , Sky Tower and Auckland CBD.

Special thanks to the team from Lifeguard and safety who kept the team safe during the shoot. and the Waka Hourua team.
