Australia's Maritime Safety

Australian Maritime Safety Authority
Multiple locations

“Ensuring shipping is safe, our seas are clean, and lives are saved – AMSA, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority.”

Filmed at 23 locations at sea, on vessels, at ports and from helicopters, we travelled from the Torres Strait to Tasmania to tell the story of the Australian Maritime Safety Authority.

Working to AMSA’s script, our brief was to convey the breadth of the agency’s areas of responsibility – from the safety of commercial fishing vessels to tracking cargo ships along the Great Barrier Reef, and from the Australian Rescue Coordination Centre to improving boat safety in remote communities.

We’ve since gone on to produce a series of videos for AMSA including Port State Control, the Maritime Labour Convention, the Australian Shipping Register and Protecting the Marine Environment, aimed at helping international ship owners, masters and their crews to understand their responsibilities and obligations while in Australian waters.
