When The Big Anxiety comes to town a group of women are inspired to tackle the devastating effects of suicide and trauma. The transformation they experience raises a bigger question: do we as a society need to change our ways when it comes to mental health?

A feature documentary completed late 2023 and currently entered into film festivals internationally. We are currently seeking conversations on distribution for this important documentary.

I’d Rather Die (than go into aged care) follows Forgotten Australians as they investigate the reality of ageing, their options for residential care and the fears that are reignited….

Cultural heritage is under threat. 

Rio Tinto’s destruction of rock shelters at Juukan Gorge in 2020 prompted a global outcry, the departure of top executives and a parliamentary enquiry that recommended an overhaul of Australia's Aboriginal heritage protection laws. Yet many sites are still threatened, facing mining, tourism, resourcing and developmental pressures. We were honoured to work with the Alliance to produce these stunning advocacy films to support their campaigning for different approaches to heritage management.

Short films with simple mental health support messages made with people who have lived-experience

Nash's story shares his passion for Nature and how when he's stuck in the middle of a pain-induced depression period, finding ways to get himself into the bush can really help him see things differently and understand how to better care for himself.

After losing two children, Andrea's story celebrates the way that connecting with people online through forums really helped her to grieve and accept the hardships she was experiencing. Each film was developed, written and filmed in close collaboration with Nash and Andrea and we're excited to support them to share the films and continue their advocacy work around mental health.
