Behind the Scenes of Leaving Allen Street Episode 4

After three years, our latest documentary 'Leaving Allen Street' is nearing the end of production. The episodic documentary is about a group of charismatic, intellectually disabled people leaving their institutional home and taking the reins for the first time in their lives.

The photos below are from behind the scenes filming Episode 4 of the series. Recently we filmed Greg having a play with some of the adore-able and adoptable pets at The Lost Dogs Home. Owning a pet among a great list of things, has become a possibility for Greg since we began shooting the doco three years ago. His story, along with the other stories we’ve captured have been absolutely wonderful to follow and we've met so many brilliant people along the way through our partners at OC Connections.

‘Leaving Allen Street’ is set for release later this year.

The Bridge campaign in 2018

We're very pleased to be continuing our work with The Bridge in 2018. The Bridge is a leading disability services provider in Melbourne's South-East and we've been telling the stories of the organisation for the last three years. Recently we visited the three branches of the organisation, The Bridge Employment, The Bridge Connects and The Bridge Works. Below are some moments we captured showcasing the organisation's commitment to empowerment, choice, support and advocacy. 

This year's video campaign will focus on two of these services, The Bridge Connects and The Bridge Employment. We're looking forward to working closely with the team again to develop some new stories and share the successes of the organisation and the people they support.

VCA Greats - Richard Frankland

Richard Frankland is the head of the Wilin Centre for Indigenous Arts and Cultural Development; a member of the Faculty of Fine Arts and Music; and the subject of our third instalment of our VCA & Conservatorium Greats campaign. 

Richard is a prolific creative. A poet, musician, author and filmmaker, he's written, directed and produced over fifty video, documentary and film projects. A highly acclaimed activist, Richard was nominated for Australian of the Year in 2013 for his work with Indigenous community groups and work on lateral violence and community awareness. 

In June, we met and profiled Richard at his property in the southwest of Victoria. We were captivated by his story and look forward to sharing it with you in the coming month.

VicHealth Active club Campaign

Our latest project with VicHealth is taking us around Victoria to tell the stories of the clever grant recipients that are keeping their communities active. 

"VicHealth’s Active Club Grants provide funding to increase the opportunities Victorians have to participate in community sport clubs." - VicHealth

We travelled to South Gippsland to film with Swell Mamas, a mother’s group bringing together the unexpected world’s of surfing and childcare to the beaches of Inverloch. We then journeyed out west to the You Yangs in regional Victoria to film with Escaping Your Comfort Zone, a body-positive hiking club for women.

We are looking forward to our upcoming shoots, capturing the incredible locations and communities assisted by VicHealth’s Active Club Grants. We'd like to thank everyone who has been involved so far.
