'The Common Thread'
Earlier this year I had the pleasure of hitting the road with good friend, and long time film project collaborator - Director Darius Devas. This project took us as far north as Arnhem Land in the northern Territory, to the far west of NSW, and as far south as Melbourne - with a whole lot of regional towns in between.
“The Common Thread is a six-part documentary web series in which Australians from all walks of life share their journeys with mental health, and tell us about the tools and tactics that have supported their recovery.”
Pretty proud to be on DP duties for this special project, and super pleased with the results. This one has been released weekly through the Being Here Facebook and Youtube channels, with a 30 minute version being screened on the ABC to launch mental health week in October.
