Michael & Lorrae’s home is nestled deep in a rainforest of their own making near Maleny, Qld. The land (previously a disused cattle farm) has been carefully restored over 20 years using much of the rarest flora in Australia. Constructed using only hand tools and recycled materials, the open style of their home embraces the landscape and it's wildlife, connecting it’s occupants on an intrinsic level to the environment around them. Hence, they create a remarkably small carbon footprint. This film hopes to inspire the viewer to contemplate this central idea of our inter-connectedness, and to consider how to apply that to better home designs.
I made this film back in April 2012 with the help of my lovely wife Alana. It was shot entirely on location with an Olympus EP3 (micro 4/3 format) in about four hours. Editing took a little longer. I submitted it to the 2012 Eco Flicks film festival based on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland Australia. Thanks to Mick & Lorrae, and also Glenn for helping to organise everything.
