the laps tv - reality tv series
How can we consume less? Live our dreams? Meet new friends? Adventure more? And have a bloody good time doing it? ‘The Lap of Tasmania’ is a documentary, following Dustin Hollick and Rhian Slapp, two ordinary fathers with the survival skills of well-trained house pets, on a two-week journey around Tasmania with not much more than the clothes on their backs.
The rules are simple: No cash, no car, no technology and just 10 personal items each. These scruffy surfers from the East Coast of Australia leave home to learn the secrets of a well-balanced life and aim to get back a connection with nature that has been lost with the advent of modern convenience.
They re-connect with nature but it is the goodwill and generosity of the quirky humans that inhabit this remote island that make their journey and survival possible.
US Premiere Jan-Feb 2019. Details coming soon.

double barrel - lead up video
An element of Double Barrel Film's side projects was to introduce alternative surfing concepts to the kids and locals of Lobitos and Peruvian surfers in general, so we teamed up with Andy Wells to create some original handmade hand planes.
Angie and Dustin called up Andy on a sunny Sunday, taking along local filmer Jy Johannesen to document the process of shaping a hand plane from start to finish, then surfing them in super fun waves.
They created eight unique hand planes from local paulownia wood, coating them in oil made from 100% natural plant oils, and Angie will take them to Peru to surf with Harold Koechlin and the local kids of Lobitos.
The boards were donated to both kickstarter donors and the kids of Lobitos.
