Film PR

NSPR has done an incredible amount of film PR over the years, ranging from documentaries to a “Pavlova” Western (New Zealand’s take on a Spaghetti Western) through to feature films and the launch of a television station. Below is a snapshot of our work in this area.

“NSPR is a standout PR and events firm. I have worked with them for almost 10 years on several movie premieres. The creative, enthusiastic and hardworking approach this team gives our movie premieres is second-to-none. I recommend them to any business in need of PR and event management. I’m based in Australia and can honestly say that NSPR is the best of the best”

NSPR has worked with international film director Taylor Steele for his movie premiere in New Zealand Proximity, which stars Kelly Slater.
This surf film has premiered around the world and Taylor Steele commented that he was “blown away” by the professionalism and relationships NSPR had with New Zealand media. It was very flattering coming from such an iconic director, who has worked with the biggest PR companies in the world.

Good For Nothing

Good For Nothing was a ‘Spaghetti’ Western made in New Zealand, so termed a “Pavlova Western”. We feel very proud of the work we did here because literally, no stone was unturned. Any angle possible was leveraged to gain PR coverage and it was everything including a TVNZ Sunday documentary.

Director Mike Wallis said, “NSPR delivered for us, what has been described by people in the industry, as one of the most impressive publicity campaigns for a New Zealand movie. Given our limited budget our primary marketing angle was to utilise publicity and NSPR was beyond outstanding. They were passionate, dedicated and willing to fight for us and the film and delivered something truly remarkable. When looking for a new team member we look for extraordinary people who will lift our project, business and profile to a place that we cannot. NSPR’s passion, ideas, dedication and networks lifted our publicity campaign to a place far beyond our expectations and I doubt there are many others in New Zealand
that could match what they have achieved. One of the best decisions we made was having NSPR join our team.”

The Last Ocean

PR for The Last Ocean required considered thought because not only was it an informative documentary, it had huge political implications not only in New Zealand but internationally. The PR needed to excite people to go and see the film but also be politically motivating. There was a huge sense of pride being involved from a PR perspective influencing the outcome of fishing in the Ross Sea, Antarctica.

“NSPR is awesome to work with. I released an environmental/political feature documentary called The Last Ocean. It premiered at the New Zealand Film Festival and with little budget to play with I decided the best option to promote the film was to invest in PR. I met NSPR and was taken by their energy and enthusiasm so took them on. We had a wonderful premiere and a fantastic result with the media, right across the board – print, television, radio and online. The NSPR team worked very hard with a professional but fun approach to the project and importantly they gave some great advice along the way”
