New Zealand Bar Crossing Series

Winner of 2014 Sealord New Zealand Water Safety Awards

Even for the most experienced boaties, bar crossings are a high-risk activity. This video provides information on how to make safer bar crossings.

This project took over 15 months to complete. It is the most challenging project Indiefilm has ever taken on. There are many parties involved, mixed with tide, weather, swell, wind and everyone’s day schedule. We produced 5 films in total, covering Raglan, Maketu, Pauanui, Bowentown and a generic Bar Crossing video. Each 12 mins long educational video will be used as a part of Coastguard boating education training.

Produced by Waikato Regional Council and Bay of Plenty Regional Council, with funding from ACC and Maritime NZ.
