South Australian Tourism Commission have asked local filmmakers to give their take on a favourite spot in SA. I was born and raised on Yorke Peninsula and Black Point is a lovely beach on the east side of the peninsula known for it’s holiday shacks, crabbing and calm beach. It was a place I frequented many times in my youth so I thought it might be fun to hire a shack and take my own kids there along with some friends. My idea was pretty simple, shoot the kids having a good time and then let them retell the story over the phone and skype to their grandparents. Kids come out with some great lines and I am sure the words “people are not like, too worried about their jobs so they don’t get phone calls and stuff” would hit home to a lot of parents as we race from one thing to the next.
Also, kids don’t really need much to keep them happy, it’s the simple pleasures that give them joy like “going for long walks on the beach, playing beach cricket, playing in the sand…..yeah!” and who doesn’t love “pee-ing in the water”?
