WHITE ISLAND DELIVERED30th July 2018
For the fortunate few involved with the New Worlds shoot, White Island delivered definitive Gunn Guy stuff.”
Accessing the volcano by helicopter is one of life’s memorable experiences and the only practical method to fully access the dramatic and diverse scene. As Henderson points out, there’s no other way to capture the majesty of the place.
Beyond the crater, an entirely new world waits. The extended coast is vibrant and alive - dolphins, tuna, gannets, and whales set in an azure liquid backdrop. A larger juxtaposition to the life-erasing crater is difficult to imagine.
To have such expertise on hand, via the helicopter operator, makes an immeasurable difference
And it’s more than the viewpoint the machine allows. His presence is reassuring, and his management of the many safety considerations of shooting in a live volcano would be difficult to replicate.
We’ll leave the last word to Derek… “New Zealand is a spectacular place, to be sure, and I’ve worked in most of it. Honestly, I rate White Island by helicopter as the number one experience for any international visitor”.
