Rodney Cook
SGNZ Coordinator

I have had the privilege of working throughout the world with industry icons such as Peter Jackson, James Cameron, Oliver Stone and Jane Campion. Working with such visionaries allows me to challenge myself and my colleagues to deliver breathtaking scenes that enhance the storyline.


I strive to provide a calm safe working environment for cast and crew, allowing my team to provide memorable action sequences regardless of budget and inhospitable locations.


My creed is a strong work ethic, creativity, careful planning and treating others with respect..
