The Clarence Community Volunteer Service connects volunteers with people 18 to 64 with a disability and people 65 or older (or those 50 years or older and identifying as an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander) who need support to live independently in the City of Clarence.
This year they ran some focus groups to gather information on how best to move forward with new promotional material.
During this process Journey Film Studios, from Mosaic Support Services, took up the challenge to produce a video that could be used to promote the service. After researching other advertisements they decided that they would use humour to capture people’s attention.
Judy Smith, the Coordinator for the Clarence Community Volunteer Service, recalls how everyone banded together to create a story that was both filmed and produced locally and featured community members:
“It was great fun to make, and we were delighted to keep it as close to home as possible. The result is a great example of the benefits of partnering with others in our community and we look forward to future opportunities to work together”, said Ms Smith.
The end result was a collaboration between CCVS clients and volunteers, Mosaic Support Service’s Journey Film Studio, Evolución Media and Edge Radio 99.3 FM.
