The NSW government is attempting to lead the nation when it comes to states driving towards the clean energy future which Australia is - slowly, hallelujah - starting to embrace.


We had the pleasure in June of heading to the centre of this beautiful and varied state with the newly formed NSW Office of Energy and Climate Change, working on drone and video production for the new team. Promisingly, the new office sits in the Treasury cluster, meaning it should theoretically help be able to drive government policy in this area.


Travelling in and around Albury, Wagga Wagga and up to Lake Cargelligo, drone and camera operator Bill was on hand to photograph and produce videos on carbon sequestration projects - wide-scale eucalyptus plantations - as well as native seed nursery and first nation ranger programmes.

It's been a mammoth couple of months for our documentary on environment, heritage and reconciliation, The Lake of Scars.


After premiering at Antenna Documentary Film Festival in Sydney in February, the film has gone on to be screened in cinemas in every Australian state and territory (apart from Tasmania and W.A. to date). From Darwin's beautiful Deckchair cinema to Canberra's National Film and Sound Archive, Gold Coast Film Festival to sold-out screenings in Bendigo, near the film's filming location on Dja Dja Wurrung country,


The reviews have been great - not least the four stars received from everyone's favourite half of Margaret and David, David Stratton, who sang its praise in the Weekend Australian.


A coming highlight for us is our showing at the Castlemaine Documentary Festival in early July - coinciding with NAIDOC week. Uncle Jack Charles, our storyteller, will be in attendance with director Bill Code and cultural advisor Ngarra Murray, so get down if you can on July 3rd.


Tickets to all of these screenings are linked to from our screenings page here.


We've been blown away by the passion of people who want to put screenings on themselves; charities, community groups, government agencies and more have all shown interest. If you'd like screen in the local town hall or similar, drop us a line - hello@wedgetailpictures.com.


Above all, if you would like to help us get this film where it needs to be - changing hearts and minds in schools, universities and more, please consider a tax-deductible donation to our educational impact campaign to pay for the resources which will get it in front of teachers ands students.

In our work with disability services company Hireup, we've had the pleasure of working on a range of video production formats to best support their needs; communication and marketing, user updates, report dissemination and 'doco-style' storytelling videos.


Training videos are a staple in the video production world; when done well they can save a company time and money by succinctly wrapping up directives, raising awareness and providing updates to staff; it's something Wedge-Tail Pictures has been doing for years.


Late last year we stretched that concept; what if a video could be produced as a recruitment tool for medium and larger-scale companies? Take developers - IT workers. They're in hot demand in the work from home-driven economy, and finding the right team-member is becoming trickier for companies that need to compete as never before for the best talent.



In this recruitment video, we created an employment tool which the company was able to use to show off why Hireup is such a great place to work. The staff who featured in the recruitment video did not need to be trained in reeling off a script or blurting out the company mantra; it's all natural. With our journalistic background we're adept at working with everyday people to put them in a position of comfort and simply work on choosing the best lines to fit for each project. It's fast, affordable, and effective.
