aul Swadel showcases his knack for creating

artistic, eye-catching and award-winning work

as a director and producer with nearly three decades

of experience in all areas of the film industry. Paul

graduated with a Master of Fine Arts from the Elam

recordings, he began collaborating on short films

such as an experimental piece, “Supercollider,” and

“Accidents,” a thriller about a work gang that won

screenings at film festivals in Venice, Italy; Clermont-

Ferrand, France; and Melbourne, Australia. He has

also applied his directing talents to music videos

and commercials, including award-winning projects

for Sony and Nike. Paul has made his mark in arts-

related programming, directing a significant number

of award-winning documentaries, including “The

Understudy,” which went behind the scenes at the

Metropolitan Opera, and a six-hour series entitled

“The Big Picture,” declared best series at the 2008

New Zealand Screen Awards. He is currently

developing seven feature films and producing shorts

with the NZ Film Commission while teaching 3-D

animation and visual effects courses at Media Design
