Day 55 aka Day 9 of our Study Break - pt 2: And of course we also had to visit some more rainforest while on our way back down to Cairns. Besides the Mossman Gorge we visited Daintree Village and Port Douglas, both towns which are not too exciting or picturesque.

🌏English explorer Captain James Cook discovered the Great Barrier Reef in 1770 the hard way -- by running aground on it. Cook's ship, The Endeavor, was stuck fast on the reef for an entire day. The crew finally freed the ship by throwing overboard approximately 50 tons of cargo and other items. The badly damaged ship was quickly repaired so that Cook could continue his search for the fabled "southern continent." #GreatBarrierReef #Whitsundays #Queensland #Australia
So here’s my creative process... it always starts with sound. I often spend hours listening to bootleg tracks and remixes on Soundcloud. I find an artist or song that makes me feel something, in this case nostalgia, find something I can connect to and then use that connection to draw correlations and identity to the story I’m trying to tell. .
This little video makes up a huge part of my childhood. Growing up in Kuranda, Far North Queensland, the GBR(Great Barrier Reef) was at our doorstep. As much I’d love to say that swimming with turtles was a past time or I had a pet crocodile or Steve Irwin is my uncle, my connection here is drawn from locale. The colour undoubtedly makes me feel at home. The crunching sound of diving into water reminds me of all the times I spent swimming as a kid, occasionally here on the reef but often in the natural creeks or swimming pools that surround the region. .
Point here is that my creativity is often sparked from emotion. If we feel something as artists we channel that energy into our work. Making content like this is never for anyone other than ourselves. The process, the connection to sight and sound and how that makes us feel is always what keeps us coming back 🏝🙏🏼 #lovetheprocess
