It was important for me personally to make my short film “Come Back Australia”, shot during a recent visit to Bali.
I wanted to capture the beauty of the people and the island.I felt that Bali had been getting hammered by the Australian media in regards to bombings, high-profile drug cases and so on.
That’s probably why my mother was a bit nervous about me going over there – she was worried I’d get all my camera gear stolen or wouldn’t return at all.
I was convinced that all couldn’t be doom and gloom over there, so when my sister and her husband ( also mother and father ) decided on a trip over there in the New Year, my partner and I jumped at the idea to join them, with me sensing an opportunity to shoot some footage as well as soak up some culture!
