Gorgeous Video Captures Everyday Life in Tasmania

Three young filmmakers from Melbourne, Australia heard about a man named Phipps who lived on a lake in central Tasmania. Phipps was a fly fisherman so the three set out to create a short film about the beauty of the serene sport. Once they met Phipps, however, that all changed.

As Drew Dunlop, one of the three filmmakers explained to us, “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.”

The video was released four days ago. It quickly caught the attention of Vimeo who chose it as one of their Staff Picks. Now, enjoy these beautiful stills, and then the gorgeously shot video, below.
