Craig Anderson has just been everywhere of late, hasn’t he? Between Hawaii, California, Tahiti, and dancing up and down the east coast of Australia, he’s been logging madly to finish off his new film, Slow Dance, a Marine Layer Production. Those travels recently found him in Wollongong, a town south of Sydney. Craig most likely feels comfortable there because it ain’t so different from his hometown of Newcastle. Same distance from Sydney (two hours if your foot’s heavy), except on the other side, being south, and like Newcastle, the two main commodities are the university and the coal industry.

Now, you may remember a certain spot in Wollongong that’s blessed with the backdrop of a energy conversion generator. Which is where we find our photographer perched in this instance. “To score a couple of the behind shots I had to climb up onto the old rusty wave generator,” says Chris Phillips. “But that was no trouble, ’cause that’s where my mates and I hang out in the summer. Climb, jump, make swings off it into the water, so fun.”

So, anything remarkable happen? “Nah, it was just a perfect Autumn day. The sun was out, the wind was west, there was waves and Ando was going skitz at my local with no one out. He’s super nice and chilled, too. We tried to get him to come out and get pissed with us, but that failed (laughs).”
