SURF DIVE 'n SKI - Red Ocean Mystics

SURF DIVE 'n SKI - Red Ocean Mystics


WTS spent a few memorable days with SDS filming models Avril Alexander and Anna Tunhav on the run in the Australian Outback for their 2013 swimwear campaign 'Red Ocean Mystics'. We delivered a 30 second national TVC, Cinema Ad, and extended short film for use across various channels. Shooting on the RED Epic we captured the simple beauty of the surreal outback and washed it with a pulled-back, mystical aesthetic.
