Enough to freeze….Brass Monkeys!

Drift recently worked with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation on a piece which profiled the Brass Monkeys Winter Speed Challenge. The 2 minute segment was produced for for ABC Open, and features interviews with a bunch of windsurfers at Inverloch who chase the fastest speeds on the coldest day.
The segment will be compiled with other sport profiles in a project called 110%.
Drift Media is profiled in the ABC Open Gippsland blog as part of the project.

The Brass Monkeys segment was also picked up by ABC News 24 and screened on October 31 to a National audience.

Drift “Shakes That Thing” with the Voodoo Swamp Daddies!

Drift recently filmed a gig of local swamp/ surf/ rockabilly band The Voodoo Swamp Daddies.

The 3 piece played a great set at Lucky 13’s Garage in Moorabbin.

Camera Op- Michael Green approached the gig with a unique outlook.  “we’ve been using go pros for a long time- especially for high action content” he says, “and so I thought why not try them in a band environment?…I mean they are light, have a nice wide angle and can capture continuously for 90 mins.”.

Michael teamed the go pro footage up with a SONY Ex1 chase camera.  “Essentially as a single camera set up, it gives me heaps of different angles to chose from”.

Chasing the light at the 2012 KA Moth Nationals

Drift Media was involved at the 2012 KA Moth Nationals, held at Mornington Yacht Club in January.

After working with sail company Zhik on the 2011 World Moth Sailing Championship at Lake Belmont (NSW) in 2011, Mornington was a different story.

Big winds, and a big swell, did not deter the competitors……All up, a great week of racing.

We were engaged to shoot and edit Daily Highlights as the regatta unfolded.  Dan Thomas has put together a fantastic compilation of the event.

Automobility

Drift Media has recently been working with Automobility- a local Victorian business which specialises in customised wheelchair access vehicles.  The conversions are amazing, and give people with mobility issues a chance to gain some independance….awesome stuff!

Paradise Blown Exclusive Screening

On 19th April, the crew at RPS opened their doors and had an exclusive screening of “Paradise Blown”- a windsurf adventure doco about  two blokes from Melbourne who designed and built their own touring windsurfer, and then toured the islands of Fiji.

It was a case of BYO chair as over 30 people attended to watch the doco,  drink some beer and eat some pizza.

Windsurf Adventurers, also Matt Tonner and Adrian Rowe gave a brief chat about their Fiji trip.

and contrary to rumours that windsurfers are tight wads…over $250 was raised for the Fijian Flood Relief.
