Wedge-Tail Pictures has an environmental documentary in development on water - to that end we are searching just the right person to host it - there's a gig description below:

The team behind an environmental documentary in development are looking to meet someone passionate about preserving the natural world, interested in the hosting and shared scripting of a documentary project on water use. She or he may be someone with a scientific/academic, activist, or agricultural background or simply a strong interest in water, farming, energy, the environment, First Nations water rights or activism, from any background or corner of Australia.

Murrumbidgee: Big Water is an impact documentary in development which charts a path through one river system, the Murrumbidgee, to ask how we might better balance the competing demands on our water supplies across the world. It seeks to highlight the things Australia is getting right – and wrong – with regards to water and the natural world in a cinematic, informative, and nuanced way. Media/film experience is useful but not essential - the key is being informed and passionate on the topic, being able to present to camera, and being open to new ideas and perspectives.

If the project continues into production, then it is paid, creative work on a documentary with a professional and accredited team.

We were really pleased to assist Full Stop Australia with video production on their latest powerful video campaign in the field of domestic and sexual violence.

Wedge-Tail Pictures shot and post-produced a series of videos with Lisa Madden from Sydney's Clever Content for the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based violence campaign.

A 4k video shoot, three point soft box lighting, using a Canon c300 mark ii camera and using the Blackmagic 12g monitor as both a monitor and extra recorder, with participants aided by autocue.

This video production was shot, somewhat miraculously given the amount of participants, in a single day in a Sydney studio and edited quickly to deadline in Final Cut X.

A big week coming up in the life of our critically-acclaimed documentary The Lake of Scars; we're heading for a national broadcast on NITV on Monday 3rd October, at 9:30pm!

There'll be a daytime replay on Tuesday, as well, plus a place on SBS On Demand.

The Lake of Scars is an environmental story of reconciliation told by the late, great Uncle Jack Charles, a tale of allyship from Dja Dja Wurrung Country in Victoria. Made with the the irreplaceable help of several members of the Yung Balug clan from this corner of Dja Dja Wurrung Country in NW Victoria, it tells the story of their fight to protect and recognise scarred trees

and other heritage, with the dedicated help of a local white couple, Paul and Cathie Haw.

It's great to finally get the broadcast - after hitting up 35 cinemas in six state and territories, this film, made on a very small budget with an even smaller team, will reach further into schools and universities with the help of new impact partners.

Educators wishing to screen the film can copy using their institution's Screenrights licence and use the fantastic resource created in partnership with ATOM - which is available for free! It contains great discussion starter points for students on reconciliation, heritage, scar trees, cultural burning, frontier history and more. The DVD is also available for pre-order (dispatch after October 3rd) from our distributor friends at Ronin Pictures.

A massive thank you to all involved from me (Bill Code, director) in this team effort; in remembrance of the wonderful Uncle Jack who provided an unmatchable spark, passion, wit and integrity in the latter stages of filming.
