Landscapes and Locals

‘Landscapes and Locals’ is the collaborative film that was created through the Peterborough Snapshots Project. The nature-style film captures the stunning beauty of the Peterborough area, from the striking cliff faces, the pounding southern waves to the smaller details such as rock-pool habitants.

‘Landscapes and Locals’ was independently filmed by ten participants on numerous cameras including smartphones, iPads, GoPros, DSLRs and Drones over the course of a few months. The resulting 40 hours of footage was collected, sorted, selected and edited into a 15 minute film by Colleen Hughson.

Contributors to the film include Natasha Johnson, Alex Nesic, Christine Norton, Wendy Couch, Barry Pike, Cath Bell, Gary Boehm, Coralee Askew, Luke Foster and Colleen Hughson.

Synematic (John Hudson and Mat Hewson) composed an original musical score for the film. The duo performed the score live at the official screening of the film in Peterborough on the Australia Day weekend (2015).

Colleen would like to thanks the Moyne Shire, the Peterborough Residents Group and the Peterborough Golf Club for the generous support of this project.
