A visual ode to local landscape from June Films

The Haze has a chat with acclaimed videographer/editor Amie Perry-Thorne (UK) to discuss her recent experiences while shooting in the Blue Mountains for June Film’s latest project ‘Blue as The Mountains’.

The visually stunning short film uses the euphoric natural beauty of the local environment found in The Blue Mountains to challenge viewers conceptual views of time and space. This abstract project was brought to life from the creative minds of Amie and her fellow June Film filmmaker, Abdull Nurdin-Hussein. Together, the collaboration leaves viewers transcending, best described; "before we are through, I think you'll agree, that truth is stranger than the strangest fiction" Amie Perry-Thorne.

The use of environment as a source of inspiration:

“Walking along the cliff paths of the Blue Mountains, and the National Pass in particular, is an incredibly humbling experience. As you pass each corner and more of the view is revealed it puts into perspective just how immense the vast landscape is.

“The tranquility and timelessness of the Blue Mountains was a big theme for the project - we wanted to look at how time somehow seems to slow down and stand still in the presence of ancient landscapes. Wentworths Falls was also an incredible place to film because of the sheer scale of the waterfall, and the beauty of the tumbling water makes it an almost magical place to be.”

“From the long winding trails of ants in the red dirt, to the flocks of birds soaring past the cliff faces, and the ancient rock of the mountains themselves, this is a place of harmony where life occurs simultaneously without the concept of time… Here in the vastness and haze of Blue Mountains, time seems to both stand still and flit past all at once. We really wanted to show the untouched beauty of the Blue Mountains.” – Amie Perry-Thorne.
