Profile

Sci Fi fan, futurist thinker, online broadcaster and comic book aficionado Grae Burton is a familiar face on stage and screen. When Grae is not on set he is behind the camera as a writer, producer and director using cutting edge technology such as 360 panoramic video as a new form of online storytelling. He recently worked with ATEED in Auckland to support the creation of their AR/VR hub, a one-stop shop for virtual reality technology support. During his career Grae has toured Shakespeare to South East Asia, been lost in the Australian outback searching for the legendary Crocodile Harry and was almost in a car accident with Julia Roberts’s brother on the streets of L.A. He has built theatres and cinemas, toured outdoor and children’s theatre around the country, interviewed two prime ministers (the good ones), been hit on by Sir Ian McKellan and had a hand in bringing to life the hit film Hunt for the Wilderpeople (insider tip – Sam Neill is a fantastic dancer).
