Sam Clark

My name is Sam Clark, I'm a second year screen and television student at the New Zealand Broadcasting School, looking at getting into camera operating / editing in the future. I have loved creating content since I was little, making stop motion LEGO movies, videos for my primary school, and making short films with friends.

As I have got older, I have been able to gain many skills and connections by working in the industry. Some examples of my industry work experience include working as a camera assistant at the New Zealand Golf Open at Millbrook Resort, a camera operator and assistant at the Queenstown NZIHL (Ice Hockey) games, and shooting / editing a local Queenstown wedding video. I’m easy-going, friendly, and hard-working with a good work ethic, and always keen to push myself to learn more.

During my time at the New Zealand Broadcasting School, I've honed in on developing my skills using cameras in both a studio and field environment, as well as learning how to edit on AVID. As well as working on my skills in these preferred fields, I have also tried out things such as floor management, producing, and directing, which has given me a greater understanding and appreciation of the other roles and aspects of a production.

I thoroughly enjoy travelling, experiencing new and interesting places, and being given the opportunity to meet new people and broaden my personal knowledge.

Having held a full drivers licence for almost two years, I’m planning on applying for a P-class licence in September. I’m comfortable driving most types of vehicles, but particularly confident with automatic vehicles.

Changing the image of Croquet

When you think of what sports appeal to young people, croquet's the furthest from your mind. Now, Croquet New Zealand wants that to change and are trying to spread the word that croquet is cool.
