Every Australian Counts
I was commissioned by National Disability Services to produce a video as part of their 'Every Australian Counts' campaign, which was responsible for successfully delivering the NDIS to parliament and seeing it passed by both the Labor and Liberal parties. The video was the central video component of the campaign; it needed to convey information that would confront viewers about the present state of the disability industry, but also inspire them to campaign for change. The video also had to be accessible to people with disabilities, particularly the visually and hearing impaired.
To do this, I based the video on Kurt Fearnley's Australia Day Speech, and designed an animation and motion graphics typography based production to bring the speech to life in an accessible way.
The resulting video was very successful, it was featured on Channel 10's The Project and was tweeted by then Prime Minister Julia Gillard.
Being Invisible is a short documentary I produced in partnership with Amy Brown. It sought to make the subject of youth homelessness real, by focusing on the stories of two young women who had experienced homelessness.
The video used a mix of animation, music and direct to camera interviews. The result was a video that was stark, confronting, but also sensitive to the experiences and lives of the young women.
The video was screened by Price Waterhouse Coopers, as a fundraising initative as part of their commitment to ethical business practices. In attendance was Rob Stokes as a representative of the NSW government, as well as many other business leaders from Optus, ANZ, Fairfax and Rabobank.
Refugee Day Video
For Refugee Day 2016, I produced this journalistic video piece about the impact of Australia's off-shore detention program. The video uses a powerful interview with the former director of the Nauru facility, as well as overlay sourced from news sources and animation that I created.
The video was viewed over 200,000 times across social media platforms and Youtube, and was retweeted by many influential organisations who work in the refugee advocacy area.
NDIS Announcement Video
To celebrate the beginning of the NDIS, I produced this video with National Disability Services and John Ajaka, the NSW Minister for Disability Services. The tone the brief called for was celebratory, to encourage the campaigners who had fought so hard for the introduction of the NDIS.
The video also had many sensitivities in its production, as it featured minors with disability, and needed to be timed with political announcements.
I produced this video for the Memory Link product, an audio device designed to help people with memory related disabilities connect with moments from their past. The photography and editing was designed to show the dignity and joy that can come through memory.
