The crew was very resourceful and always worked to accomplish the goals of the film production and the Australis is an incredible work boat. It’s comfortable yet capable of handling diving, topside filming and drone work at the same time. It was one of the best live-aboard shoots I’ve been apart of and that’s all thanks to the Australis, Ben and it’s crew. Thanks for the amazing adventure to Antarctica!
The Australis team created an incredibly welcoming home during our filming shoot. With an extensive knowledge of the area Ben was able to put the boat into highly challenging areas allowing us incredible access to film remote locations. The Australis team also have a broad knowledge of working with a variety of film crews and kit so always were accommodating to what was needed for the shoot. The meals on board were some of the best Iv had on any shoot. Exactly what you need after a long day filming outside.
Thank you for an unbelievable team effort
This was a demanding seven-week expedition on a high-profile film project for National Geographic. Australis was the PERFECT platform for our 5-person team & our 38 cases of equipment. The ship accommodated our large jib, drones, dive operations and gyro-stabilized shooting platform with ease. With Capt. Ben at the helm, always willing to go the extra 10 yards, we captured incredible footage, achieved all of our objectives & exceeded all our expectations. Australis is small enough to move around quickly & big enough to be safe and comfortable. More than just a work trip, Ben & his crew helped make this the experience of a lifetime.
