The PASS~PORT dudes didn’t really have a plan going into their section of The Cinematographer Project, World View, which is sometimes the best plan of all! Initially, a few fairly elaborate ideas were put forward, but due to everyone's impending schedules filled with "Australian summer time, beach selfies" (and wallets filled with moths), they decided to keep it simple and film as much as possible. The end result was a perfect visual representation of what PASS~PORT is all about. Check their edit here online for the first time ever and be sure to get the full-length on iTunes!

Excerpt taken from Cameron Sparkes's interview in our Feb '17 issue:
How has it been filming this?
It's been amazing! I'm still under the impression someone at TWS accidently emailed me, was too embarrassed to say anything and now my involvement with this project is purely based upon "dumb luck". I guess I should say "amazing and somewhat surreal!" I can now push the little red button without looking at it first so, it's been quite a journey filled to the brim with self- improvement.
What was your guys' plan going in?
We didn't really have a plan. Initially, a few ideas were put forward which were fairly elaborate but due to everyone's impending schedules filled with "Australian summer time, beach selfies" and wallets filled with moths, we decided to "keep it simple" and told the boys to just "film as much as possible right up to the deadline". Well, that's what the text message Trent sent all of us said. He's still in the Bahamas with the other company owners involved in this project. It's pretty funny they had to compete in the "TransWorld budgee smuggler/sexy beach guy" competition and we just had to film the video parts! The joke is definitely on them! George Kousoulis and I played "digital pervert" with the guys based in Sydney with a little help from veteran pervert Su Young Choi and young, up and coming pervert Brendan Gardoll. We also had our friends Dylan Bruns and James Cruickshank document Callum Paul and Geoff Campbell's strange sexual/skateboarding relationship down in Melbourne. Geoff [Campbell] also filmed a large portion of this section when he wasn't skating or making completely inappropriate sexual gestures toward poor Callum.
