Mission Australia asked us to develop resources for young people with ASD, the services working with them, and family and friends. We worked with a group of young people with ASD to develop artwork, animations, sound effects and interviews that spoke of their experiences and the benefits of having ASD. We produced a series of 4 postcards using participant’s artwork, and a DVD of stop-motion animations interspersed with interviews with material generated by the young people.
In partnership with Somerset Regional Council we delivered a digital storytelling project centred on disaster recovery. We worked with stakeholders across the Somerset region to celebrate community, develop skills, produce and showcase local stories, and provide on-the-job training opportunities for local young people. With the help of our young crew we produced a series of community documentaries celebrating the community’s recovery and resilience.
We produced a video for Artslink Queensland to promote the value of supporting the arts and cultural and community development in regional South East Queensland.
The Youth Advocacy Centre (YAC) approached us to develop a logo, social media and online presence, and short campaign video aimed at lobbying against the current Queensland law allowing 17 year olds to be placed in adult prisons.
The Create Foundation approached us document the views and ideas of young people in care at their National Youth Advisory Council Summit. We worked with two young delegates from each state and territory to produce a video that offered recommendations to improve the foster care system in Australia. The young delegates learned skills in media relations. They developed a presentation, produced a video and presented their recommendations to decision makers and business leaders.
