At Mulong we aim to bring the power of film to healing our communities and country. We have developed film methodologies to assist community programs to educate and revitalise culture, and promote wellbeing.
There are many ways to apply film to community projects. Film is a powerful way to promote change and help individuals, families and whole communities.
Our filming techniques have been developed through Indigenous knowledge learning processes. Film is the closest thing to the traditional transfer of knowledge, where we can see and hear what is happening and learn in a practical way. We have applied these practices to support programs for health, education, and cultural survival.
Our projects to date have involved creating resources in the form of drama, scripted acts, documentary, and music.
Every project is different and each one needs to be tailored correctly. Planning is important. Getting your project story board sorted and people involved is just a small part of the logistics needed to prepare for such programs. If you need help getting started, we have valuable list of partnership communities and organisations that may be able to support your initiative.
