Earlier in 2017 I was fortunate to be asked to shoot all the water sequences on Rhiannon Bannenberg’s film Riptide. After working on a commercial with the amazing DOP Tania Lambert, she was kind enough to give me the opportunity to work with her on the film. It was all shot at one of my favourite locations on the south coast of NSW and we had a great time as a team in the shooting process. If you get a chance, get along to see it and support Australian filmmaking. In Cinema’s now.
Here is the official trailer synopsis:
When fashion model Cora (Debby Ryan, Disney’s JESSIE, Radio Rebel) suffers an embarrassing “fashion faux pas” there is nothing else for it but to head down under to Australia for some peace and tranquillity.
However, life out of the spotlight is not what it is cracked up to be. Expecting a five star holiday with her Aunt Margot (Genevieve Hegney, The Kettering Incident), Cora realises all too late that her idylic beachside retreat has no internet access and is a long way from the nearest city.
With the thought of the vicious world awaiting her back home, Cora feels trapped, but as time goes by, friendships bloom and romance sparks between Cora and local Tom (Andrew Creer, Tomorrow When The War Began). Still keen to return home and resume the career she left behind, Cora is torn between her welcoming community and the bright future and potential fame that awaits her back in America.
