Three Capes Cinematic Poem Short Film Promo For Tourism Tasmania Directed by Justin McMillan in 2015

“(This)… commercial promotes The Three Capes Track – a stunning new walking track around the Tasman Peninsular, located southeast of Hobart.”

“As a coastal destination, Tasmania is stunning. It’s just as visually spectacular as some of our more well known tourism traps and I feel like we are revealing one of the country’s best-kept secrets.”

“New Light”: A Cinematic Time-Lapse Promo Short Film For Holden In Tasmania Directed By Timothy Melville (2014)

“New Light” is a cinematic time-lapse promotional short film for Holden Automotive  shot in Tasmania directed by Timothy Melville.

Earlier this year myself and director Timothy Melville were sent to Tasmania by automotive brand Holden with a couple of cars to make a time-lapse film featuring the new Cruze Z Series model. The southern latitude, high altitude and low population made this the perfect location to capture unpolluted night skies.

We travelled over 2,000km through the barren hills of Queenstown, to the vibrant streets of Hobart and finished on the dolomite plateau of Ben Lomond National Park. During the seven nights on location we captured nearly 20,000 still images, shooting from dusk until dawn and averaged just 4 hours sleep per day.

We used two Elinchrom Ranger RX kits to capture the car in total darkness on the banks of Lake Burbury. The consistency of light and long battery life made these lights ideal for capturing the car in time-lapse under the milky way.
