Shining a light on community heroes

Nimbus was born from a desire to tell stories through video, and they particularly enjoy the opportunity to support valuable community projects. Director, David Woodcock, shares their story of giving back to our community.

“A highlight this year has been our involvement with Pirongia Te Aroaro o Kahu Restoration Society and their mission to bring the kokako back to Pirongia. We donated time to put together a story sharing this project with the wider community.”

Kokako are very dear to David’s heart, and their return to our local maunga symbolises hope for the future of our environment.

“It was tremendously exciting to see the fundraising target reached, and later watch the first kokako pair flying into the canopy”, David said.

“We have an ongoing relationship with MESH Sculpture Trust, creating a mini-documentary about each artist and the sculptures, which will become a larger documentary work in the future. This has been a fascinating immersion in the people and the process behind the scenes.”

With David being a track cycling fan and colleague, Dawn Tuffery being a passionate bike commuter, support for the Te Awa River Ride and the Avantidrome Home of Cycling have aligned naturally for Nimbus and they’re keen to promote cycling in the Waikato.

Videos have included social media pieces for up-and-coming cyclists and participants in the World Masters Games, as well as profile-raising clips for the “big guns” who are some of our unsung sporting heroes on the world stage.

“We also produced promotional and highlight pieces for Cambridge Twilight Cycling Festival - a fun charitable event, and for Momentum Waikato’s Vital Impact Programme”.

It’s a privilege and pleasure to contribute to projects that are enriching our region, and we look forward to telling more of these stories in the future.
