ELWIN Productions is an award winning boutique production company based in Dunedin, New Zealand. Formed by  Scott Mouat in 2006, ELWIN Productions creates high quality visual content for corporate, commercial, documentary and drama projects. Working from a talented pool of camera assistants, grips and gaffers we work with directors and producers from around the world to match good looks to good stories.

Dunedin is the greatest small city in the world.  From here we have access to a variety of stunning landscapes, fascinating wildlife and innovative businesses.  We strive to ensure we're using the latest and best equipment and offer options for a variety of budgets.

In quieter moments we turn our attention to stories about wildlife and conservation and occasionally dabble in drama.


Latest Work

Big Pacific is a major series created by NHNZ for PBS in the states.  We spent a few weeks filming some delightful Yellow Eyed Penguins and their chicks.  


 Broken, our latest short film, premiered in Dunedin in August.  Set in the depths of Fiordland, it's the story of an old man forced to confront his past and share a secret he's kept for over half a century.
