By the Lake, Tasmania

  • A beautiful video portrait of a quiet, simple existence in Tasmania

  • Tags:

    Australian creative house Betty Wants In blew our minds a while back with  Experience Zero Gravity, a super slow-mo, adrenalin-fueled look at crazy fools basejumping off of cliffs. Now the team has blessed us with a new clip, this time from the opposite end of the vibe spectrum. By the Lake, Tasmania is a lovely portrait of a man named Phipps, who lives the simple life on a lake in central Tasmania.

    Drew Dunlop, one of the three filmmakers, spoke to My Modern Met about the project: 

    "Phipps lives in a fisherman’s shack that his family’s owned all his life.
 His front garden is a giant lake, brimming with 9 lb trout; his neighbors are wedge-tailed eagles and possums and tiger snakes.
 We set out thinking we'd make a short film about the beauty of fly fishing but soon found out Phipps was the real star. The end result being a snapshot of Phipps' beautiful, quiet world."
