Reggie’s Case Files is a web series which follows the mildly psychotic private investigator who thinks he’s in a classic noir thriller. We follow him on his cases, ranging from domestic drama to in-depth character profiling, as he verbally narrates his life and belittles the people he encounters. The show explores classic noir tropes such as femme fatales, corrupt officials, and mysterious missing persons cases.

Game Over is an eight part web series following the lives of four odd ball girls who bond together from their shared hate of computer games. In a quest to stop their addicted boyfriends from gaming their lives away, the four girls start up a secret club. What follows is a comedic and trivial journey into four very different lives. It is silly, unpredictable, sad and a little bit wacky.

Loading Docs 2015
Loading Docs is a unique initiative that produces short (three-minute) documentaries that captivate and inspire audiences locally and internationally, while developing and promoting New Zealand filmmaking talent.
In 2015 ten new short documentaries all with an overarching theme of ‘connect’ were chosen for the initiative. Filmmakers took part in professional development workshops and received support from Loading Docs producers as they developed their projects, undertook a crowd funding exercise on Boosted, produced and then launched their short docos to the world.
