Favourite Things: A short film on Arctic sailing filmmakers

Came across this beautiful piece, ‘White Whale

It’s a 3 minute short film about a sailing adventure in the the Arctic Ocean, featuring a traveling filmmaker Guille Cascante and Goroka.

Particularly loving the majestic voice-over by Orson Welles, reading Moby Dick:

“We ourselves see in all rivers and oceans. It is the image of the ungraspable phantom of life; and this is the key to it all.”

I think I need to watch it again.

Shooting in Tahiti* // タヒチでの撮影

Tahiti Film TV Shoot
Just look at that beach!

Spinnaker Films is based in Sydney, but did you know we also production manage shoots in magical places like the islands of French Polynesia*? We shot a background plate job for Japanese company last year in Bora Bora*.  Here are a couple photos taken by Tony Fry, a producer at Spinnaker Films.

It’s also dry season (May – September) there right now, so the perfect shooting climate.
タヒチでの撮影のベストシーズンは5月から9月の乾期の時期です。
この時期は雨も少なく美しい自然が撮影出来ます。

Practical Tip: The equipment and crew on the ground is very limited though, so if it’s a TVC you may have to consider sending gear from Sydney or LA. Don’t worry, we can help with that.

So if you need to film something that resonates a tropical beach, and miss feeling your toes, let’s shoot in Tahiti! Don’t hesitate to contact us at anytime; we’re here to help.

昨年とある企業のCMの背景の撮影の現地プロダクションを担当させて頂きました。
手に入る機材やスタッフはかなり限られているので、CMや広告の撮影の場合は
シドニー(もしくは日本かLA)から色々持って来る必要が出て来るかもしれません。

* For the geographically challenged, like myself, French Polynesia (aka Tahiti) is composed of 5 main island groups located in the South Pacific, including Tahiti (the largest island) and Bora Bora.
