Octopus Pictures is a New Zealand production company making world-class films and documentaries.


In 1999, Dan Salmon & Tash Christie founded Octopus Pictures, a film and television company specializing in high-end documentaries and drama. 

We continue to produce and direct successful projects for other production companies, but Octopus Pictures exists to give us the freedom to develop, pitch and produce projects we believe have international appeal.

We have both won awards for documentary and factual series both in New Zealand and overseas - Best Popular Documentary (Qantas Film & TV Awards 2009), Grand Jury Prix and Prix du Public (FIFO 2007), Best Director, Documentary and Best Documentary Series (NZ Screen Awards 2003), Best Lifestyle Series (NZ Film and Television Awards 2002).
