Short film showcases the beautiful Blue Mountains

A couple of film-makers from Sydney have created a short film showcasing the beauty of the Upper Blue Mountains and they're hoping tourism bodies will pick it up.

Amie Perry-Thorne and Abdull Nurdin-Hussein moved to Sydney last year from the United Kingdom and were so struck by the beauty of the Blue Mountains they decided to make a film.

They spent a day filming around Wentworth Falls and the Three Sisters in November last year.

"It's an amazing place. When we first came around the corner to Wentworth Falls by National Pass the scenery was incredible," Ms Perry-Thorne said.

"We were fascinated by the Blue Mountains, and wanted to make a film to capture its remarkable untouched beauty and vast landscapes. 

"The tranquility and timelessness of the Blue Mountains was a big theme for the project too - we wanted to look at how time somehow seems to slow down and stand still when you're in nature." 

The couple, who operate June Films, have approached Destination NSW to see if they would be interested in using the film in marketing the area.

Mr Nurdin-Hussein, a documentary maker, was involved in the production of the documentary Sea of Shadows, about the critically endangered vaquita porpoise facing extinction off the coast of Mexico. The film won an award and premiered at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival in the USA in January.
