Point Blanks Films is a filmmaking cooperative based in Wellington, New Zealand. It was formed by co-directors Matthew Mawkes, Justin Young and Mark Willis. Our goal is to inspire each other, make our own movies and collaborate with like-minded individuals.
We love genre films of all varieties, providing pure, unadulterated entertainment. By entertainment we mean engaging, great storytelling - whatever the genre might happen to be. We are not realists - we believe movies exist to provide escapism. This does not, however, mean movies shouldn't provide emotional realism.
We believe in co-writing - two brains are better than one! We believe in stylization - but also believe that the best director is the one you don't see. And we believe that the audience is never wrong.
