Marco Polo Aged CareThe campaign features seven young people talking about life when they are old. We concentrated on feelings and outcomes rather than bricks and mortar. We also include a gay couple talking about life for them when they might need aged care.
Beautiful Minds - Cirque du BerzerkEvery year the Beautiful Minds volunteers create a memorable night all in aid of mental health.
Book Fair - Lifeline MacarthurEach year Lifeline Macarthur holds their Book Fair. It is a major fund raiser for the Crisis Support Line. Utilising Social Media to drive our message we created a music clip with some funky music - and we asked local identities to dance and to be the "stars" of our communication. Prior to releasing the clip we released individual shots of the dancers for their Facebook pages. So the simple video had lots of pre release publicity.
Best in Beds - TV Commercial
Woolstar TV CommercialThis TV Commercial was created for Wool Products Australia. The client wanted something unique to help build his brand. The commercial will run in regional Australia to start and is looking to be dubbed in other languages. Programs used in this production include FCPX, Audacity, Adobe Audition, Affinity Designer and Crazy Talk.
Lifeline Macarthur - Hold Me Close Music VideoWe were approached to create a song and music video for Lifeline Macarthur on a sensitive subject - youth depression and suicide. It has been a very lengthy but rewarding project. We brought Fred Day (X-Factor & 3-Wishes) to create the song and also appear in the film clip. Our client's goal is to use the video clip and song to open dialogue about this issue. The song "Hold Me Close" - is an incentive of Lifeline Macarthur in response to the increasing incidents of depression and suicide by younger Australians. The song was written and performed by Fred Day and features Olivia Macarthur and Campbelltown's Performing Arts High School Choir. The project was funded by the the NSW Government, Rotary and Lifeline Macarthur. If this song causes schools to open the doors to discussion on depression and suicide, it has been worth it. If it creates more dialogue amongst younger Australians it was worth it. If it saves one life - it has been well and truly worth it.
