An “ongoing reportage of Australia’s relationship with the ocean,” The Underwater Project has gained much acclaim in mainstream media. It’s Tipple’s wish, though, that recognition for the UWP will transfer to his documentary series focusing on social justice issues. “Some of the people that I’ve worked with in Fiji and Indonesia deserve a lot more recognition than a couple of guys splashing about in the ocean. Hopefully there will be a flow on effect from The Underwater Project to the documentary series,” says Tipple.
