Whilst travelling along the east coast of Australia, I decided to put my skills to use and volunteered to create a promotional video for the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary after seeing an advertisement on their website. As a keen wildlife photographer and filmmaker, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to immerse myself in the world of Australian animals, animals I’d always dreamed of seeing. The filming itself went well and despite the 35C + heat and humidity to contend with, we captured kangaroos sunning themselves, koalas clambering around in their branches and many other beautiful creatures. It was an incredible experience getting to combine the things I’m passionate about, animals, film and travel and I feel that the resulting film is some of my best work. At the moment it it is being shown on screens in the cafe and will be used online in the future to promote the sanctuary.
