Updates from Maritime Film UK’s Rob White, TV producer, reporter and camera operator with 30 years’ experience at the BBC, Channel 4 and ITN


16 February 2022

That shuffle was captured brilliantly in time-lapse by our stills and time-lapse specialist David Botwinik. David, who hails from New Jersey, has a great love of ships. He’s proved that over and over, not least by serving as a volunteer on the Gazela, a barquentine preserved in Philadelphia. David worked with us on LCT 7074 of course, as well as on our HMS ‘Victory’, and the WWII Fairmile RML 497 films, among others – producing stunning work loved by our clients. Look out for him in our films – he always appears somewhere in shot, just like Alfred Hitchcock did! But sad to relate, we no longer have him here to work with us – he’s moved back to the USA with his wife Gretchen, two of the nicest people you could meet. We’re plotting to lure him back for future projects.
