In 2014, I worked with Colleen Hughson and fellow Peterborough community members to produce a short film titled; Snapshot’s ‘Landscapes and Locals‘. During 2014 I held the position of secretary with the Peterborough Residents Group. The PRG were the successful recipient of the Moyne Shire annual community arts grant of $6,000. This funding was used to employ Colleen Hughson to work with our community to produce a short film that celebrated the local landscape and coastal environment.
Colleen’s level of professionalism, communication, delivery of tutorials and advice and willingness to go beyond what was expected and commissioned was highly impressive and greatly appreciated by the PRG and our community. The resulting film is a stirring snapshot of our environment during the autumn and winter months accompanied by an original soundtrack that Colleen commissioned and overlayed. Colleen’s approachable manner, personal integrity and professional knowledge ensured the process was not only smooth but also very enjoyable with many of the participants learning valuable skills in relation to taking film footage and using digital time lapse applications. The film was viewed by an equally impressed and moved audience on a balmy summer evening in January 2015.
