From 2011 to 2016 I filmed and edited the stories of old boys who attended Wellesley College in Wellington and their teachers and family. The ages of the old boys covered nearly 100 years of the school, from it's origin on The Terrace during WW2 to Days Bay House where it is based today. I traveled to London and back, spent hours talking with people about their life work and learned what it takes to gather and construct a story from a sea of information and emotion.
With over 40 films, ranging from 2 to 35 minutes and covering both personal stories and commercial pitches, the Wellesley Story is a complete collection of memories that conveys the Wellesley College experience from the day boys arrive to the day they retire.
The stories are slowly being released through the Youtube account of the school and the main documentary which was produced for 3 screens has premiered at Te Papa, Wellingtons biggest museum.
