A Life of Extremes: The Life and Times of a Polar Filmmaker.

Max Quinn is a nature filmmaker. His workmates include chimpanzees, penguins, tigers and whales. He grew up in Te Kuiti but was destined to be amongst more exotic animals, in far-off lands, a long way from heartland New Zealand and its sheep. Max is an expert at working in cramped spaces, inclement weather, dark, cold places and remote locations. His life has been a long romance courting tarantulas and burrowing owls in the Tibetan plateau, emperor penguins in the Antarctic, sled dogs in the Yukon, and whales and polar bears too.

Max will speak about his career and recently published autobiography; A Life of Extremes: The Life and Times of a Polar Filmmaker
