Great Ocean Road

Short film: Artillery Rocks by Glenn Dixon

This is a short film I created over two evenings while exploring the abstract textures of Artillery Rocks along the Great Ocean Road. My self prescribed assignment was to visit a location multiple times over a weekend to allow myself an opportunity to see familiar things in a new way. It was an interesting exercise to look back through my material in the edit and see the progression of shots as I worked with the location. Initially I shot a whole series of wide angle perspectives exploring the sweeping coast line in warm afternoon light. Over time my experiences evolved to focus on the lines, textures and light found within the eroded rock formations. I cut between extreme close ups of textures and long lens shots of fisherman framed through the landscape to create conceptual contrast and visual impact.
