Ryan Beaven, Diploma in Screen Production

After graduation of the EIT Diploma in Screen Production Ryan chased down jobs including hanging from a helicopter filming the Genesis Energy Lake to Lighthouse Challenge and working in Christchurch post-earthquake for TV One News.  Now he has a coveted job with TVNZ in Wellington as an Operations Assistant.  “I do a bit of everything which suits me.”

Featured Staff


Peter Baker

From London based studies in sculpture my practice developed and was supported by studio experiences of fabrication and architectural installation when assisting renowned sculptors William Pye and Richard Deacon. This formative background contributed to my ongoing research into the development of visual languages and materials within the disciplines of sculpture and photography. Relocating to Aotearoa, my research has also enabled a collaborative practice to emerge that investigates and supports dynamic bi-cultural working spaces and values, focusing on Te Reo.
