Malachi joined Ira in 2020 when he started his Visual Effects and Animation degree with the Auckland University of Technology. Under the mentorship of senior creatives, he’s now contributed to many of our award winning projects.
Malachi has worked alongside Storm Smith, who has mentored Malachi in the creative process, design, storytelling and motion graphics and how to develop his personal talents and passions to deliver excellent work. However, like the whakataukī “by my basket and your basket the people will thrive”, Malachi was bringing just as much as he was learning.
Like many rangatahi, Malachi brings a fresh, digital first, global perspective which has been a highly valued lens to bring to our work. He is inspired by Directors such as: Satoshi Kon, Sergio Leone and Wong Kar Wai. Musicians such as: Chet Baker, João GIlberto and Masayoshi Takanaka. Artists such as: Vivian Maier, Francisco Goya and Pia Riverola
We love having Malachi in our Ira whānau and cannot wait to see the heights he will reach as he progresses in his creative education.
