Watch Short Film About Oli Tweddell - Australian Finn Sailor
Ben Hartnett, a young Australian sailor and media studies student decided to base his final year film project on the sport he is most passionate about.
Over two days he filmed Australian Sailing Team member Oli Tweddell out on the water in his Finn. He then got Tweddell to record a voiceover explaining in detail about the precise movements that make or break his speed while racing. The aim of the film was to present the sport in a fresh and exciting way.
My main idea was to create a film that would appeal to sailors who understand the sport, and want to see it in a way that has never been documented before, while also teaching people who may not know the sport that well, how it works, and what sailors are doing in their boats and why they are doing it.
