A selection of short films written, directed, edited and produced by Andrew Dixon in his attempt to learn the art of the film making - from scratch with no budget and limited resources. Made possible by the enthusiastic involvement of a handful of Golden Bay locals.
Golden Bay promotional piece all recorded on a Samsumg S6 and edited on imovie. The sound track was supposed to sound more like Ian Drury’s ‘Sweet Gene Vincent’ but by the time I finally got it down to one minute exactly, I was so over it, the cheesy country version had to do.
LIVE BAIT. My first foray into script writing, story boarding and working with a camera operator. Also involved sewing a small pink dress and scuba diving.
Supreme award winner at the 2018 Allshorts film fest
CAPTAIN COOKER. The next step - dialogue and sound recording. This would have been much easier if we’d actually had a sound recordist!
Also working with lights at night and livestock.
Picked up the PEOPLES CHOICE award at the Golden Bay Allshorts film fest 2019.
Based on a disturbing idea.
Introducing Remy Kalma and Steve Wilkinson to the crew.

My personal fav so far.
Hello to all my Kiwi friends.
Looking forward very much to visiting your lovely country again and inflicting my songs on all of you who hope to attend one of my concerts, and probably on some innocent bystanders as well.
I’ve written quite a few new songs since I last toured New Zealand. And when was that I hear you ask? I can’t really remember, I never was good with dates, but I think it was when Piggy Muldoon was your prime Minister. No, couldn’t be that long surely, I think that was the first time I toured New Zealand, not the last.
Anyway, your taste in Prime Ministers has definitely improved since then, and I hope Jacinda comes to one of my concerts, she likes music so I hear. Might not like my sort of music though….. doesn’t matter really, my main hope is not that Jacinda attends one of my concerts, but that you still have hokey-pokey ice cream for sale in your country. Oh, and Bluff oysters as well……hopefully, Covid permitting, we (Pete Titchener, Emma Luker and myself) will see you October/November this year
