These are some short films made by Jack Penman.

140 Pots, 6 days in 60 seconds.



This is a new time lapse film I shot at Mahara Gallery. It shows the process of setting up the exhibition of local potters Jan and Wilf Wright. The time lapse takes place over 6 days and includes the opening.



60,000 Books in 60 Seconds


I made this short film to show people how much work goes into preparing the hall for the Lions Book Sale each year.
This is an annual charity book sale which has raised $450,000 since 1998.





Twister North of Waikanae July 2011

This film was made using images I took the day after a twister ripped through farmland North of Waikanae New Zealand on the 9th of July 2011.  The original images my be viewed here


The twister went through on late Saturday and I arrived 9am Sunday and spent the day documenting the destruction. Later on the land owners said they were glad I was there taking pictures as they were so busy dealing with the events that they had no time to do so.

After I took the images I went back and interviewed the various people so that I could show the story behind the images as opposed to just having pictures. This short film is the result. The originl images may be viewed here I would like to thank all of the respective land owners for allowing me free access to their properties.
