Little River Pictures has made an art film out of an art project.
With time-lapse photography playing a big part, this creative short film tells a story of the work and love that went into the transformation of an old rusty tugboat into a World War One Dazzle Ship.
Initiated and led by Jersey artist Ian Rolls, the boat has been painted over a period of two months with the help of Matt Daly and fellow Jersey artists.
The ex-US Army tugboat Elektra, situated in Jersey Channel Islands, is owned by Lee and Kayli Rainbow who have both dedicated a huge amount of their time into restoring her. facebook.com/tugboatelektra
