WHO WE ARE
We are Moments Productions, established in 2016, founded by the dynamic, award-winning duo: Byron and Meagan Taylor. Before 2016, we had worked together for 10 years on video projects in South Africa – including our own television series – airing globally, including on TVNZ.
We’re a husband-and-wife team, embodying a unique blend of artistic vision and technical expertise, leaving an impactful mark on the video production industry.
At Moments Productions, we don’t just create videos; we capture moments. Each frame, each project, is an opportunity to tell a story and encapsulate a brand’s essence. It’s a philosophy that has earned us the trust of many corporate and government clients.
Excellence is not a goal, but a commitment. We are renowned for our precision, organisation, and unwavering dedication to meeting deadlines.
Our clients love working with us because we don’t just deliver videos; we craft moments that resonate, bringing their brand and narrative to life.
Founder | Creative Director
Meet Byron Taylor, the founder of Moments Productions. With a career spanning over three decades, Byron’s journey through the world of media and entertainment is nothing short of remarkable.
Starting his career in South Africa as a television presenter and actor in 1991, Byron quickly made a name for himself by interviewing world-renowned figures, including Nelson Mandela and starring in TV ads and films.
Byron’s passion for the art of filmmaking led him down an exciting path where he embarked on a journey to learn from some of the industry’s most incredible directors and film talents. This immersive experience provided him with the insights and expertise that would later define his career.
Armed with a thirst for knowledge and a relentless pursuit of his creative vision, Byron earned a Bachelor of Business degree, adding a strong foundation of business acumen to his creative arsenal. He then embraced his love for travel and filmed his global escapades. The result? His self-produced TV series, “Travelling Unplugged,” which captured the hearts of audiences worldwide and in New Zealand. This remarkable feat is a testament to his dedication to storytelling, no matter where it takes him.
Byron Taylor’s story is one of passion, perseverance, and an unwavering commitment to bringing stories to life. His journey from a television presenter to a celebrated filmmaker and founder of Moments Productions is a testament to the power of following one’s creative instincts. Through his journey, Byron aims to inspire and transform the way we see and share the world through the lens of video production.
Byron works hard to give his family a good life, is an awesome, fun dad and is disciplined at boxing training (ask about any upcoming fights he has lined up if you’re keen to watch him dominate in the ring).
