Arborfilms wins the 2015 Peoples Choice

Friday, February 20, 2015

The Taranaki Tree Fest (Tree Climbing Film Festival) 'Peoples Choice Prize', sponsored by Treetools, is awarded to the film which generates the most enthusiasm from the audience on premier night (at the Kings Theatre in Stratford)… and there was no contest for the 2015 Peoples Choice Award - 'Tree Recon' by kiwi film makers Arborfilms won hands down.

The short film, shot single-handedly by Arborfilms director Tumai Laybourn, received a standing ovation from the Kings Theatre crowd. 

Tumai, who happened to be in the audience filming a documentary about the film festival itself, was caught completely by surprise.  "We're blown away by the reaction to the film".

'Tree Recon' had over 3500 views in 24 hours on YouTube and its easy to see why. 

Arborfilms won a GoPro Hero 4 Silver from Treetools for their outstanding effort.
