WILD STUDIOS

WiLD Studios is the short-film production arm of global production house and multi award-winning wildlife and documentary filmmakers NHNZ (Natural History New Zealand). Established in late 2017, WiLD Studios produces cinematic content – from 30 seconds to 30 minutes – strengthening connections between brands, wildlife and our big, beautiful planet. We don’t just film wildlife, but that’s definitely where our passion and expertise lies.

We tap into NHNZ’s production units, 80+ directors and camera crew, located in key wildlife and stunning nature destinations. From Antarctica, mainland China, Siberian desert, Brazil, Sahara Desert to the Amazon Jungle. No matter how extreme the conditions, whether its -45°C temperatures in Antarctica or +45°C  in the Amazon jungle. Fixers in all these locations, with  local knowledge and connections. Back in our offices down in the South Island of New Zealand, there are 16 state-of-the-art online and offline editing suites, sound studios, editorial suites,  and world-class technicians.
