The Hum

Short Film (Full Length) – 1974

On Making The Hum

Cameraman Rory O’Shea was the driving force behind this documentary being made. A keen yachtie himself, he suggested the Wellington to Picton yacht race would be a good background to a story about Geoff Stagg.

Cameramen Graeme Cowley, Keith Hawke and John Blick in chase boats, and Steve Locker-Lampson in a helicopter joined the crew of Rory and myself on board ‘Whispers’, for the trip across the straits. Elton John’s music featured on the sound track.

Fortunately for the film, Geoff won the race.
