Cheers my friends....
    We certainly made a great team with the four of us having fun. Christian, my man Shane, Buddy dog and myself catching the spirit of King Island from beach to bottle.
Through the skill you have driving that lens, conquering the challenges and creating a masterpiece taking us all to a new level.
Rushed in to be film stars for some spirit tasting action, Jessica Cox, George Cox and Justin Hamer.  Thanks guys.
We'll be posting you more cask strength whisky to celebrate with your all time favourite sensational handcrafted spirit @kingislanddistillery 🙏💞 hh♡

"So pleased to be able to share with you that I was honoured with a gold award from the Australian Cinematographers Society for "King Island Distillery - The Untold Story".
It's a real honour and means a lot to me, because Heidi @kingislanddistillery, her partner Shane, and dog Buddy and I were the whole box and dice on this one.
Shooting it was an absolute adventure and I'm so grateful to Heidi for putting her trust in me to bring this to light.
I flew into King Island on the littlest plane I've ever been on, with a minimal kit due to weight restrictions. A camera, stills lenses, some fleccies, a few tiny lights, and we just have at it for a couple of days. Long hours in the distillery certainly didn't feel so bad when you're being force-fed single malt whiskey straight from the barrel. Believe me when say that my "no drink 'till wrap" rule was quashed by client mandate. 
Can't say I was unhappy about it either. Good times were had.
Super grateful for the chance, Heidi. Thankyou deeply. And super grateful for the ACS, who punctuate each year with so many moments that all of us members, family, friends and clients look forward to.
And also, Katie.
