The first One River documentary is now online! Throughout the course of this project, we will be gathering material created in the preparation and delivery of all ten local projects and creating short documentary films. These will serve as a strongly visual and informative record of what happened. They will also capture the impact of the project on the local community and perhaps more importantly, they will provide a long-term resource for anyone wanting to find out more about the multi-faceted community engagement project that is One River in the years to come.
These short films will provide invaluable support to teachers throughout the Murray-Darling Basin (and any riverine area in Australia) who will be using our new Education Resource Kit.
With the help of the Local Project artists, their stakeholders, contributors, participants and audience members, I have added locally sourced photos and film footage to my own images from the event to create a visual record, which is supported by all involved telling the project’s story in their own words. All of this material has been expertly edited by Andrew Howie and the soundtrack is by The Cad Factory.
You can watch the first of these project docos, Conflux, here.
