Tasmania the Movie

I was writing an article about film locations and Australia the Movie, when I discovered this little playful promo for Tasmanian tourism:

It's all part of this satirical campaign that takes a pot shot at the big budget Baz Luhrman epic, but really does a good job of the movie trailer spookiness that promises so much (Lofty mountains! Bendy rivers!) and delivers less. The map with the rest of the world tiny in comparision to the grandness of Tasmania is another cheeky swipe at Australia always under-estimating the island state.
