We have over 20 years experience producing compelling stories and beautiful visuals, from the ground and air.


VISIONCO was founded by award-winning film maker Dave Kwant
and evolved from West Coast Film.

Established as the market leaders on the West Coast and with years of broadcast and commercial experience new collaborations began across New Zealand.

The result was VISIONCO.



We guide you through a planning process that ensures that your video delivers. We'll make sure it is consistent with your business strategy and marketing aims. We'll help you create a tight creative brief and a realistic but watertight budget.

We can advise or do everything, your call. Either way you can be sure about what you will get and at what price. 


We have over 20 years experience making films. We know how to tell your story in and engaging way. We know how to connect with your audience. We know that sometimes it's not what you say but what you do that counts.

Using professional 4K cameras, high quality lenses, drones, gimbal steadycams and host of other gadgets we'll bring your vision to life.


We understand that video is changing rapidly. We know that for most clients the deliverables will need to be tailored to different platforms and used in different ways. And of course we know how to work to a deadline!

Using industry standard 4K post production tools we'll edit, colour grade and compose audio that will make your film unique and compelling.

At VISIONCO we keep things simple - focussing on creating videos that deliver for our clients.


Our small efficient crews ensure your budget creates value whilst ensuring high quality professional work.
