About Us_

Founded by some of the Pacific's most experienced Producers, SunPix creates content for Pacific and Mainstream audiences.

Our Story

SunPix was founded on the Pacific Island values of Fa'aaloalo, Fa'atasiga and Fa'amaoni. We are experienced at producing broadcast quality content at a high level which can be used across multiple platforms. SunPix has extensive networks with independent Pacific freelancers, directors, journalists and creatives in Aotearoa and the region. The company is also deeply networked across the Samoan, Tongan, Cook Islands, Niue, Fiji, Tokelau, Tuvalu, Rotuma and Kiribati Communities, as well as the emerging NZ-born Pacific demographic. We were thrilled when we were selected to continue the legacy of Tagata Pasifika. It is an honour.
