This amazing tilt-shift film was made by Keith Loutit, a photographer based in Sydney, Australia. The location may be recognizable to some surfers as ‘Ours’ on Cape Solander, at the entrance to Botany Bay, as seen on the cover TSP Issue 71. See more of Keith’s work at: http://keithloutit.com
Here’s what Keith says about Bathtub IV: “This is a personal project that would not have been possible without the support of the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service. Thanks to the entire team for their generous access during training exercises and patrols this Summer. Since the Service began in 1973, it has carried out more than 21,000 missions ranging from urgent patient transfers to dangerous search and rescue missions.
The Service depends entirely on the generous support of sponsors and the community to stay flying. Donations can be made here:
This film is 100% ‘real’, but there are some new techniques for me here, such as using time lapse to create the illusion of forward movement for the helicopter ocean scenes. These flight sequences would not be possible without the skill and patience of Chief Pilot Peter Yates. Thanks also to Trevor Cracknell (for getting wet!) and Family.”
