My 2013 foray into the South Australian film community connected me with many passionate writers and filmmakers. A creative world fuelled primarily by love and little money, announcements of further government funding cuts to the already impoverished arts world riled me so much that I couldn't resist writing a script to accompany this pre-made video clip.
Filmed in Girrakool, NSW, Australia, super short film Chasing Waterfall Fairies is designed to inspire children to reconnect to the magic of nature. Girrakool is an Aboriginal word meaning 'Place of Still Waters' - although this enchanting area is dotted with beautiful waterfalls.
‘Chasing Wave Fairies’ was shot on my smartphone in the gorgeous surrounds of Putty Beach, Bouddhi National Park, NSW Australia. It is the first in ‘A Fairy’s Life’ series of nature-inspired short films.
80% of Lima's population live in shanty towns. These communities may be poor in the material sense, but are incredibly rich in spirit, gratitude and giving. This short video is a tribute to the brilliant Haku Tours team and their humanitarian soul.. I look forward to visiting Peru again.
The unusual photographs featured in this video were taken in the Carnglaze Cavern located near Liskeard, Cornwall. The cathedral sized cavern was hand carved by men and their sons. We were alone in the cavern when the photographs were taken.
