Ever been to a crab festival? Mandurah WA holds one every year across 3 days, called Crab Fest.
It includes music, food, fireworks and carnival rides. It is just great day out for the whole family. We were hired by the City of Mandurah to produce a 60 second video of the massive event.
It was a full on day for Craig and myself, working for 12 hours on our feet with a quick 15 minute lunch break thrown in the middle between events! Lots of fun though and we were thrilled to be part of it. Especially being able to see the amazing Montaigne perform.
The Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation put on a thank you day for all staff and patients of Princess Margaret Hospital before it closed in June last year.
This is a highlight video we put together showcasing such an emotional day. There was a photo booth, face painting, choir, sausage sizzle and much more!
The hospital first opened in 1909 and has been a part of most West Australian’s lives at some point.
GoPro Fusion 360 Camera
We recently purchased the GoPro Fusion 360 camera and you may recognise some shots from this when we give it to Stitches the bear. Pretty cool stuff! It allows you to capture every angle all at once, giving the editor the freedom to choose what they want to work with. Would definitely recommend this camera, such a different way to view the world!
Being a Nurse At PMH
In the lead up to the closing of the hospital, we were asked to produce a video on what it was like being a nurse at PMH. They wanted to show this video at upcoming events as a thank you to the nursing staff past and present at the hospital for all of the energy and effort they have put into their roles over the years.
PMH’s 107th Birthday Celebration
Here is also a video we did a couple of years back for PMH’s birthday , which we were lucky enough to became a finalist in for the Australian Video Producer’s Association Awards for best highlights of an event.
Recently we visited the Comedy Lounge in the city to film a cinema advert. It was so difficult to keep the camera steady from laughing so hard at the comedians!
Do yourself a favour and go check it out, I promise you it is worth it!
Every year The City of Mandurah holds a Stretch Arts Festival which showcases art and music in a free event. We were hired to create a highlight video of the weekend of activities. Craig and I enjoy videoing these types of events as you are able to capture people naturally having fun without being aware of the camera.
Throughout the two day festival, participants experience and enjoy performance, dance, music, visual arts, theatre and outdoor activities with events being delivered by renown and upcoming local, Australian and international companies and artists. Check out the video we made showing the highlights of the weekend. Definitely worth a visit if you can make it in 2019.

So Craig is up to his inventions again! This time it is a DIY Drone Cooler, a flying Esky!
This is a tongue in cheek video so unfortunately it cannot carry a whole carton of beer and there isn’t really a cooler drone app, but the rest is actually real and it really does fly (I have flown it myself!).
This video has been 6 months in the making. The filming was an huge undertaking shot entirely with just 2 crew (apart from some “Extras” for scenes) – and often only 1 person. We shot it completely out of sight from the public- to keep it under wraps until we could complete the whole video. This meant some tricky locations had to be used. The drone build took about 4 weeks alone, literally Craig’s whole summer break – and then some. We aren’t sure if this is an invention, an artwork or a short film. I guess it is kind of all three? Yes Craig really did throw the bottle(s) at me but I’m kind of used to him doing that now, I feel like it is part of the filming process! Make sure you check out the blooper reel, pretty funny stuff!
It was built using DJI parts, mostly the DJI Phantom 3. More information and build pictures on Craig’s blog
and you can also watch the build video here.
So we were lucky enough that this short film was a finalist for Australia’s Funniest Shorts for 2017. It was awesome to hear live reactions from the public.
Here is a vlog of our adventures attending the live judging in Bunbury.
Of all the work we do and all the videos that we make, this is the most important to Craig and myself.
Our son Nate was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder when he was 3 years old. He attends a mainstream school with the help of a special needs aide.
The school holds an Awareness Day every year to teach children about the disability and difference.
Through education comes understanding and through understanding comes acceptance.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if all school’s embraced this?

We couldn’t have done it without the help of Rockingham Shopping Centre who donated a $500 gift card and a brand new bicycle that we successfully raffled off.
Thank you so much for everyone who donated and for the wonderful mascots from Chipmunks Port Kennedy who gave up their time to help a special girl.
The 6 year old dance girls from Pure Beat Dance were there all day selling books and cricket sets and being so cute that nobody could walk past them yelling “would you like to make a gold coin dalmation???”
Rockingham Shopping Centre created an under 18 Instagram Film competition with the theme ‘This Is Rocky.’ We were hired to help promote the competition, so we came up with the idea to create a series of 6 videos that can help the entrants produce a higher quality product. Have a watch you might pick up on a tip or two!
Behind the scenes filming Craig’s piece to camera
We even helped Rockingham Shopping Centre pick the winners and were there to capture the awards night. What a bunch of talented kids they were. Very proud to be part of this production.
A highlight video of an event is a great way to have social media interaction. It just needs to be fun, upbeat and short in duration. Let your followers know what you are up to. By utilising video it gives the audience an idea of what the event was like and encourages them to attend the next one. A great way to advertise your next event.
