Mary-Jane Brock-Smith

Having grown up on a diet of Disney movies and sci-fi flicks, it is no surprise I have always been fascinated by the idea of one day working in the film and television industry. My time studying at the New Zealand Broadcasting School has only strengthened this passion and ignited my love for directing and producing.

From vision switching Metro News to directing music videos, I have consistently embraced every opportunity to learn and develop skills relevant to both the studio and the field. This diverse range of experiences has allowed me to acquire invaluable traits such as organisation, creativity, and the ability to thrive in a collaborative environment. In addition, these experiences have not only broadened my skill set but have also equipped me with the adaptability and versatility needed to excel in various situations.

My strong work ethic and constant readiness to lend a hand provide an advantage to any team. I am easy to get along with and will always bring a positive attitude to set.

I am on track to achieving my full driver's licence. I currently hold my learner's licence and should have my restricted by the end of the year.

I am always prepared to take on new challenges and am excited to see where 2024 takes me. I look forward to hearing from you!
