The intention of the video “In the Heart of Auckland’ was to convey my strong relationship with the serene and spacious area of Bastion Point, leading to the vibrant, exciting atmosphere of the Kiwi culture found in Mission Bay and its dynamic beachside environment, a surrounding neighbourhood which I am hugely a part of.
My aim was to depict the diverse activities that cultural communities are involved in Mission Bay, an area highly valued for the beauty of nature, the community spirit and the café culture. When one may seek quality time, a peace of the mind and body or a sense of interaction and belonging Mission Bay offers it all, bringing together friends, families and loved ones. Being a part of the quiet, serene atmosphere or the inviting and interactive ambience, Mission Bay provides a sense of belonging and friendliness, a place for all cultures and communities to come together as one.
