A video in which filmmaker Jack Harries documents a journey to Australia in order to surprise his girlfriend on her birthday has been viewed over 1.8m times.

Jackson decided to make an unplanned trip to visit his girlfriend Ella Denton in Sydney after she jokingly suggested he hop on a plane to celebrate her 19th birthday.

The pair had been separated for over three months as Ella travelled, with Jackson remaining in the UK.

“So the other day on Skype Ella jokingly challenged me to book a spontaneous flight and come out and see her in Australia,'" said Jackson in the video.


“Three days out from Ella's birthday and so I thought it might be a suitable idea to do exactly that.”


The film follows Jackson as he travels to Hong Kong and subsequently Sydney to see Ella, surprising her with an armful of flowers outside her garage door.

The short film entitled ' A Film for Ella' was shot last December.
