Hans Bouter aka The Flying Dutchman

The Flying Dutchman

I am an expert audio visual (AV) technical creative based in New Zealand’s mighty Waikato.  With problem solving skills second to none, I have often been called the MacGyver of the production industry.


It is with more than 25 years of broadcast experience in the region that I am now privileged to be the ‘first port of call’ to meet many businesses’ AV needs – both locally, nationally and internationally.


Currently, I own and manage HB Productions Ltd; an AV consultancy in Hamilton. Here, I work alongside both small and large businesses to project manage their diverse AV needs.  I do everything from teaching corporates basic iPhone testimonial filming skills to covering large scale international sporting events.

While my services are numerous, I specialise in providing AV project management services to the corporate market. Essentially, I help businesses produce the highest quality company videos, cover live events and meet their technical conference needs - and more.
While corporate AV services are my speciality, I am also an expert in producing radio and television commercials, media training, and working in the LIVE Outside Broadcast (OB) environment (check out our event photos).

My services are backed up by extensive experience. For over two decades, I have produced hundreds of hours of live television for some of the biggest events in New Zealand and made hundreds of businesses ‘look their best’ on corporate videos. I have also produced more than 1000 television commercials, countless quality recordings of live productions, and many CD and DVD commercial releases.
