Photos. Video. Content. Stories.
Here are some past and present collaborative projects that's I've done.
Using photography and video to build a story of welcome.
oxfam comedy gala sketches
One of my favourite gigs at Oxfam was producing content for broadcast and social media for the Oxfam Comedy Gala, a part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
We had comedians ready to lend their funny, and projects that were helping fight poverty around the world. The trick was to marry them up. So Oxfam — with help of talented comedians and production people — developed the "Imagine if" series, broadcast on Channel 10 and later used to support $1 day.
Using fresh approach to deliver new fundraising materials.
capturing the strong voice of the diaspora
Bringing to together all the key players — diaspora groups, the Australian Government, large international NGOs and the academic word — for the first Diasporas in Action conference was a key moment for Diaspora Action Australia, so we captured it in a way that strengthened and amplified the voice of the people they work with. A fast turn-around wrap up video to maintain momentum, a series of illustrated case studies showcase their work, extensive quotes from people photographed and lots of action shots of the conference.
our community stories project
This was a six-month community storytelling project for Whitehorse Manningham Libraries to help the community connect to their local history, heritage and each other.
Working closely with library staff, patrons and community groups we identified the key audiences, and some juicy local stories that would appeal and then developed a 12-month content plan.
The first project up was "Remarkable Women" an art-card series telling the stories of kick-arse trailblazing women from the local area. We launched on International Women's Day and exhibited a four local events. The series was supported by addictive time-lapse video, community exhibitions and a very special event with master storyteller Kate Lawrence. People just loved it.
The next cab off the rank was for the National Trust Heritage Festival called "Here's to the StoryMakers", a big thank you from the library to local creatives. We profiled ten of these story makers with words and photographs. The content was launched Facebook, printed in booklets and reached record numbers of people. The grand finale was a special storytelling day at Doncaster Library. It was run in four languages, there was laughter, tears and a whole lot of connection.
