Not so long ago I was approached to supply photos for a short film that was being submitted for “Lights! Canberra! Action!” a short film festival based in Canberra, where you make a film in ten days.
The producers of the film Captain of the Team were highly interested in photos that I had of indigenous personalities such as Cathy Freeman, Ernie Dingo to name a few.
Never being involved in a film festival however attending some of them I though that this would be something new and uncharted territory that I could venture into.
Since supplying the images I have learnt that “Captain of the Team” came in the top 12 from 49 entries, however I do have to say that the video was excellent quality and I am very proud to have been involved in some manner. Further from this the film has been picked up by a well known current affairs program possibly to be used in a major debate.

Until the next photographic adventure, Thats all for now
