Eldon Booth

Since 2015, Eldon Booth and Alex Lovell have worked together developing film projects under the Run Charlie Films banner.

In 2016, they made the hit Loading Docs film 'Mister Sunshine', a documentary about Auckland’s flamboyant shoeshine man Larry Woods. The short film received a 'Vimeo Staff Pick' and 'Short of the Week' honours and went on to screen in short film competitions at Cinequest and DC Shorts, a showcase at Melbourne Documentary Film Festival and the curated Doc/Player programme at Sheffield Doc/Fest.

In 2018, Run Charlie Films produced the New Zealand Film Commission-funded short 'My Friend Michael Jones' (directed by Ian Leaupepe and Samson Rambo). Upon release, the film won the Moana Prize for Best Pasifika Film at Wairoa Māori Film Festival and was recently selected as a finalist for 'New Zealand's Best' Short Film Competition at the upcoming New Zealand International Film Festival. 

Recently, Run Charlie Films were commissioned by TVNZ to produce 'The Kid Who Could Dance', a short documentary film about Tony Pati (choreographer for 'My Friend Michael Jones').
