‘Bathtub IV’ by Keith Loutit is a stunning short film that shows a day with the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service using tilt-shift and time lapse techniques. The piece is a labor of love that depicts an ocean rescue when a fisherman is pulled into the water by a rogue wave.

The filmmaking techniques, however, are what make this video sensational. The tilt-shift lens captures the action in a way that makes the viewer question whether it’s all real or just a well-executed stop-motion animation film that actually takes place in a bathtub.
