Wedge-Tail Pictures recently had the pleasure of working alongside Apostle Fund Management on a series of videos produced for the ethical fund management company, based in Sydney.

Scripting, shooting and editing a bespoke first video for the team, we were able to tell the story of what makes Apostle different to its competitors, using archive and fresh drone work to tell that environmentally-positive story; ie not having people's investments go towards things like fossil fuel projects or weapons. It's an ideal that goes into our work of video production at Wedge-Tail, too.

As well as being proud members of One Per Cent For the Planet, we recently took the Clean Creatives Pledge, too; pledging not to work in video production for fossil fuel companies, and prioritising sustainability.

Whether it is clean and ethical video production, licensed drone work, or documentary storytelling, please get in touch with us and see how we can work together in Sydney and surrounds, or right across Australia.

Last year Wedge-Tail had the pleasure with working alongside Sydney's Gujaga Foundation, based at the Aboriginal community of La Perouse on the shores of Kamay/Botany Bay. Gujaga has big plans around the regeneration of Dharawal language (a process underway for a decade or two already), the language spoken south of Sydney Harbour as far down as the Illawarra at the time of European arrival in Australia.

We produced a series of videos detailing specific vocabulary in Dharawal and brought the whole thing together in a short film fronted by Uncle Shayne Williams;

You can see the other shorter vocab videos here.

It was a real pleasure getting out there with filming the dancers in the fading light. The diverse Creamsource micro light helped keep that orange fireside glow on the faces for the C300 mark ii and the Sigma Art lenses (big fan right here - sharp images, fast speeds, blurry backgrounds on demand) worked a treat. Drone work was tightly controlled given the location but the Mavic 2 Pro got a quick run (Inspire 2 drone being a bit bulky for what was needed.)

Check out the video production, and give the language app a try. What's better than being able to converse in the native tongue of the land you're standing on (looking at you, Sydney!)?

Stay tuned for more creative video storytelling this year. We thank the Gujaga Foundation for the trust placed in us for this wonderful project, documenting a beautiful turning point in Sydney's history.

Huge news this week which we couldn't be more proud of; the Lake of Scars has been officially selected to show at the Antenna Festival in Sydney in 2022. It's the only Australian film selected to compete this year.

‘“A deeply moving, evocative and beautiful insight into how a battle to preserve timeless Indigenous culture found hope in a remarkable act of black and white conciliation.”

- Paul Daley, author and Guardian journalist.

Tickets are available here.

This film on environment, history, and allyship has been six years in the making and features a fantastic array of people; there's Dja Dja Wurrung elder Uncle Jack Charles telling the story, the passionate farmer and horticulturalist Paul Haw, Yung Balug elder Gary Wyrker Myrker Murray and daughter Ngarra Murray (both closely involved in production) and Jida Gulpilil, son of late and legendary actor David. Jida also produced a stirring score with acclaimed producer David Bridie.

Directed by Bill Code and produced by Bill and Christian Pazzaglia, the film will show twice in Sydney. Once on Sat 5th February at the Dendy in Newtown, and once on Sunday 13th February at the Palace Verona in Paddington.

Tickets are available here.

We hope you enjoy the film!

In a corner of Australia exists a place of astounding natural beauty, archaeological significance, and age-old culture. But the Indigenous scarred trees and artefacts found here are at risk – until an unlikely intergenerational partnership comes forth to save the site for future generations. The Lake of Scars tells a story of allyship, environmentalism and cultural rebirth; a picture of what reconciliation between Aboriginal and European Australians might look like. But is that idea harder than it seems?
