Nikki Castle

Kia ora I'm Nikki, a director from Auckland, New Zealand. I've spent the last ten years carving a career in documentary filmmaking. I've edited award-winning series (Whare Maori, Whare Taonga and Radar: Across the Pacific), and the award-winning documentary The Green Chain.

I've directed music videos, commercials and short documentaries for the not-for-profit sector. Loading Docs is an exciting initiative for me at the beginning of my directing career - to play with more abstract interpretations of the documentary format, but also to attract and develop a network of film lovers.
