Holden Finds “New Light” in Tasmania

No doubt time-lapse films are everywhere these days and some say the time for time-lapse has lapsed. But director Timothy Melville and cinematographer Nathan Kaso are out the convince you otherwise with this sweeping branded film for Australian car maker Holden, shot over seven nights across the wilderness of Tasmania.
