Louis Sutherland

Louis performed in many award winning works after graduating from Toi Whakaari in 2004 with a Bachelor of Performing Arts. Having branched out into writing and directing over a decade ago, Louis found international success with his award winning short films Run and The Six Dollar Fifty Man, and his feature debut, Shopping. Those films were featured at a multitude of festivals around the world including Cannes and Sundance as well as Berlin International Film Festival where Shopping won the prestigious Grand Prix. Following this success Louis has been in high demand behind the camera creating work for clients including McDonalds; Ikea and HSBC.

After a recent guest starring role in Wellington Paranormal , Louis once again caught the performance bug and has been spending more time in front of the camera ever since.

Known for his believable and grounded performances Louis is just as interested in exploring the funny as he is in playing scary monsters.
