Building Cane Rods

I had a young guy from Melbourne called Jack McCowan visit me last week.  He wanted to shoot some video of me working and interview me at the same time.  I nearly said no, but I had a look at a film he'd done before (called Three Two One - on his website - http://www.adventureproject.org) and he looked like he had a lot of potential.

He has been working as a Ski Instructor and Outdoor Event Coordinator in Vic (Mt Baw Baw), and been traveling overseas too.  He's headed back to Melbourne, looking to do some freelance video and look for other work at the ABC etc.
Best Regards, Nick Taransky
