A promotional video for the 2018 Unconformity Festival; a Tasmanian contemporary arts festival that explores the paradoxes of Queenstown - an art mining community on Tasmania’s rugged and remote West Coast.
The festival, which started in 2010, has since grown to garner more and more national attention - and with its setting in the wild and isolated former mining hub of Queenstown, it really is unlike any other arts event in the country. Angus Ashton Film was commissioned by the festival to cover the 2018 event and create a showreel of the national and international artists who attended, along with their works, performances and installations.
The busy 3 day shooting schedule involved video coverage of an amazing range of artists and their works, both throughout the town and among the rocky mountainous surrounds - the later of which offering many interesting angles for drone videography. After covering the event the video was compiled into a 2 minute showreel. The clip features 'the confluence' - a breathtaking location where the contrasting waters of Queenstowns' King and Queen rivers converge. Along with creating the video showreel Angus Ashton Film also captured a birds eye perspective of the confluence that was used as the thematic poster image for the 2018 festival - . The final video edit was delivered for use on web and social media platforms to showcase an amazing 3 days that was the Unconformity Festival 2018, and to promote the upcoming 2021 event.
