It all began with two creative minds who dreamt of starting something exciting and new. Lioness Film Productions is a company dedicated to Writing, Producing & Directing movies with heart felt storylines that challenge belief systems and take you on a journey of self discovery. The ability to synergize with the storylines and characters are Imperative when storytelling. It is a rarity when films contain both. What's evident in almost all of the projects Lioness are bringing to the global marketplace is a need to evoke change in the world, and find the purpose of life. To combine these rare qualities, allows the viewer to take a journey of cinematic artistry.

We look forward to sharing our creative adventures with you.

LIANA TAIAPA

CEO/Producer/Director

My love & passion for Film & Television started over 35 years ago when first saw the movie ET.
By the time I completed grade 10 I knew that School wasn’t for me, and within 6 months I had enrolled in my first Film & Television Course and was en route to Hollywood working with the 2nd Unit Assistant Directors on the HBO film “The Last Outlaw” starring Mickey Rourke.
On return to NZ, I spent the next year honing my skills across all areas of film production under the watchful eye of the late Don Selwyn of He Taonga Films.
To gain a deeper level of understanding in film theory I moved to Sydney, Australia to study my Diploma in Film and Television. During that time, I wrote, directed, and produced my own 16mm film entitled “Te Rakau” also working as the producer on “Pool Player”.
For several years, I worked as an assistant director on Music Videos, TV commercials, Stage Manager in stage productions and produced on multiple freelance projects.
After years of working in the Film Industry, noticing that the world was going digital, for the next 10 years I stepped away from Film and Television and leapt into digital marketing, SEO optimisation, sales & marketing, customer service, disability employment services & communications development.
Having obtained many skills over my career journey I longed to be back home. 2022 I launched “Lioness Film Productions” with my business partner and writer friend Lepeka Lynn. November 2022, we completed our first 26-minute short film called “Inward”.
With multiple TV series and feature films written and ready to produce we are ready to take on the world! We make Movies that Ignite, Inspire & evoke change.  We look forward to sharing our creative adventures with the world.

LEPEKA LYNN

Writer/Producer

LePeka’s love and passion for film began in the mid 80’s where her beloved Nana worked at the local movie theatre in a small town. Movies being a luxury at that time for most families, LePeka and her siblings had the fortune of viewing movies more than once and on occasion where the movie was a new release and a big hit, in reserved seats. Lepeka is an experienced and seasoned writer/ editor in the vocational education space. As a creative outlet she has in the past 8 years, turned her pen to the art of writing scripts independently or as commissioned. This includes various genres, from sit-coms, dramedy and action comedy. LePeka continues to work on projects as a key part of Lioness Productions vision.
