Background

Production company WTFN asked me to bring to life some archival material that was to be featured throughout this documentary. We delivered approximately 30 shots.

On the evening of Monday, July 9, FOXTEL and The History Channel brought together some of Australia’s finest actors and musicians for one night only, to take part in a ground-breaking documentary special, THE PEOPLE SPEAK.

Filmed at Sydney’s historic Carriageworks site in Redfern in front of a live audience, THE PEOPLE SPEAK features Australia’s leading artists from stage and screen delivering the letters, songs and speeches of rebels, visionaries and protesters from Australia’s past.

These dramatic moments from our history were brought to life on stage by a remarkable group of actors including Alex Dimitriades, Chris Haywood, John Jarratt, Claudia Karvan, Asher Keddie, Peter O’Brien, Leah Purcell, Magda Szubanski, Jack Thompson, David Wenham and Dan Wylie and interspersed with haunting musical performances by Tex Perkins, Julia Stone and Christine Anu.
