I love living in this part of the world. An endless escape for adventure and creativity awaits those willing to venture out of the comfort of their offices and homes. I was fortunate enough to move here a little over a year and a half ago after convincing my partner it would be a good move to get away from the busy city life. I'd like to say it's been a relaxing change, but to be honest, it's been more hectic than ever over the past couple of months. It's a different kind of grind though....for a change you actually look forward to it.
I was recently commissioned by Australia's South West to develop a series of clips to be released over the next 12 months to explore the different aspects that the region has to offer. This is the first....The idea 'to take a different demographic for a weekend away, and do something that they wouldn't normally do in the South West'.
I mean let's face it, who of us between the age of 20-35 would consciously come up with a plan to check out the Art, History and Culture of a region? Most of us would rather go surfing, fishing, camping, sky diving, wine touring or one of the many other aspects of a place that cures our primal craving for living life to the full.
Fortunately though Ash and Jonny had an absolute ball doing what they did, and I have to say...so did I. It definitely opened my eyes to what else is out there in this magnificent region.
