A short documentary examining the thoughts and motivations behind 6 Royal National Lifeboat Institution volunteers. The story takes place around Poole lifeboat station, Dorset, UK.

We wanted to find out why these people are so dedicated to volunteering and what drives them to undertake actions which can often be life threatening.

Taking a personal approach to filming, we built up strong relationships with our subjects in an attempt to convey realistic character representations.

Produced & Directed by Jack Collins & Elliott Trent // Music by James Bonney // Archive footage courtesy of the RNLI.

With special thanks to Rob Inett, Anne Millman, Simon Mumford, Dave Riley, Andy Salmon and Paul Taylor.

Created as a part of our final year at the Arts University College Bournemouth studying BA(Hons) Digital Media Production.

Shot on Canon 7D w/ Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 & GoPro HD Hero.
