Otis Carey. A video portrait.

As part of ‘The Common Thread’ documentary series I DP’d earlier this year, we spent a few days in Coffs Harbour shooting with Otis Carey for the ‘Coast’ Episode. To coincide with NAIDOC week and the release of the series, Director Darius Devas made this extended piece on Otis. A simple piece, with a small crew, and an honest and important offering from Otis. Proud of the end result of this one. Frames and video below.
