Working With 4WD Action

During 2014 I had the opportunity to work on a adventure travel documentary DVD series for 4WD Action magazine. My role was to shoot and edit 45 min program as part of a commercial dvd that is distributed online and at news agencies nationally every 3 weeks. I’ve done alot of travel in Australia but during my 6 months working for 4WD Action I got to work and travel to some of the most remote and beautiful places in Australia. It wasn’t long before I took on the role of producer and director. This was a challenging but rewarding role, pre-production of shoots back in the office , location scouting, In the field I was managing up to 9 crew members, having to think on my feet when plans changed or unforeseeable circumstances arose which they always did! Every DVD shoot was non-stop where a standard day was up at the crack of dawn for filming. Outside of getting content for the travel segments, there was  sponsor and commercial filming obligations and creation of branded content. The working day would go well into the night capturing, checking and backing up data. Hard work aside, it was an amazing opportunity and I look forward to working on many more projects like this one in the near future.
