We're in the edit on our latest project with wine retailer Vinomofo. This video will tell the story of their Homeless Grapes initiative, which started in South Australia's McLaren Vale in 2015. Now in it's fourth year, Vinomofo, along with three local winemaking communities - including growers, pickers, winemakers, label designers and bottling companies - have come together to make a wine that Vinomofo goes on to sell. All the proceeds are donated to three charities that support people experiencing homelessness. It's a fabulous project with a great story that we've been thrilled to capture over the last few weeks at De Bortoli Wines in Victoria's Yarra Valley along with Inkwell Wines, Penny's Hill Wines and Chalk Hill Wines in South Australia's McLaren Vale. We're looking forward to the release of the film in a few weeks.
We're thrilled to share the trailer for our film 'Milly', a narrative project we produced this year with ARDS Aboriginal Corporation. The film is to be used as a health education tool for young Indigenous women. The project saw us shooting on location in Nhulunbuy, Biritjimi and Yirrkala in North East Arnhem Land with a wonderful local Yolngu cast. A comprehensive study guide was produced to accompany the film and we're pleased to hear that 'Milly' is being so well received by the young women and also by the health educators.
Thank you again to our clients at ARDS: Executive Producers Joy Bulkanhawuy and Emma Murphy; our fabulous lead cast of Zowie, Rachel, Roberta and Caitlin; and our fantastic crew: Cinematographer Sky Davies, Co-Producer Noni Eather, Sound Editor Tfer Newsome, Colourist Martin Greer and Animator Steph Comfort.
'Milly' was produced, written, directed and edited by Yarn.
We're very pleased to share our latest video campaign for The Bridge Employment, an organisation in Melbourne that assists young people with disabilities to prepare for work and find employment. For this campaign we worked with three young people - Lucy, Campbell and Vanitta - who very graciously shared their personal experiences of preparing for work and gaining employment. We produced one video story on each participant as well as a campaign trailer.
A big thank you to the team at The Bridge, particularly CEO Phillip Toovey, GM Ausra Wells and staff members Cindy Warren, Martina Netto and Fili Polataivao.
Scroll down to view the campaign trailer and the three video stories.

We've just completed a new campaign trailer for our 11-part series for Victorian College of the Arts. The series profiles recently graduated alumni from the disciplines of Visual Art, Theatre, Production, Film and Television and Dance.

Filming is underway on our latest project with the City of Greater Geelong. We are documenting the construction of a very innovative project - an Artificial Reef off the coast of Portarlington, Victoria. Designed to mitigate tidal events, the approximately 100 metre long Artificial Reef will be constructed from steel cages filled with organic matter: scallop shells recycled from local restaurants. Work has commenced on the steel cages and several tonnes of scallop shells are being turned intermittently in a sunny paddock in St Leonards, waiting to be packed into the cages. It's anticipated that the reef will be 'greened' in order to offer a complementary benefit to the local ecosystem and encourage sea life to infiltrate the structures.
The deployment of the reef will take about two days and will occur later in 2017. We are looking forward to capturing underwater images and aerials of this very exciting event.
