Warrnambool P.S gets Strategic with a video

March 15, 2016 // Colleen Hughson // No Comments // Posted in Blog, Our Work

Part of Warrnambool Primary School’s updated strategic plan is to create a clear and efficient way for conveying its goals and vision. A video, with a simple message told by the people who love the school – the students and staff-, has been a great tool in explaining the strategic plan to the school community.

I created this video for Warrnambool Primary School in 2015 and it has been launched on their new website in 2016.

About Warrnambool Primary School from First Ladies – Colleen Hughson on Vimeo.

“Communicating to parents and the wider community is something that all schools work very hard to achieve, especially to a level where parents can easily articulate what is happening in the day to day running of the school. Involving First Ladies in developing the narrative of Warrnambool Primary and to help us tell the story of our new Strategic Plan has helped us enormously in making that become a reality. Colleen’s work exceeded our expectations. She has a knack of accurately depicting our values and bringing out the best in our students. Her work certainly speaks for itself.”

Community Service Videos

Brophy and Family Youth Services work with vulnerable children, young people and their families. They run a number of programs to support people in the community. I was engaged by Brophy and Family Youth Services to create a four videos to shine a light of the some of the these programs and services.

Brophy felt that video would be a way to engage with clients and an easy way to promote their programs on their social media channels.


Koala health assessment at Cape Otway

October 12, 2015 // Colleen Hughson // No Comments // Posted in Blog, Our Work

The first week of the September school holidays saw with me driving to the beautiful Cape Otways to film Koalas being captured, health assessed and released back into their habitat. It is jobs like these that make me feel lucky to be doing what I do. To be working in a beautiful spot, meeting really cool people (who climb trees for a living) and documenting a project that I wouldn’t otherwise know about, really makes freelance filmmaking all worth it.

I filmed and edited these two films for DELWP in September, 2015. To read and learn more about what DELWP are doing with the koalas, read here.

“Victorian Government vets and wildlife officers have returned to Cape Otway to carry out welfare actions to manage and protect the local koala population.”
