The Bridge - 3:37min
A piece of cinéma verité on what happens to a swing bridge during the massive floods of June 2007 as waters rise in a small creek in the southern Snowy Ranges of Gippsland, Victoria. The ingenuity and engineering of humans up against the power of nature. Who wins the struggle?
This short film (3.37 mins) was the Winner Best Film My place: Our Place (Open) Category at the Wellington Shire Short Film Competition conducted as a part of the 2008 Briagolong Film Festival.
The Briagolong to Dargo International Bike Race 1973 - 7:43 min
The story centres on a challenge between an Aussie, a Yank and a Pom as to who can ride from the Briagolong Hotel to the Dargo Hotel in the fastest time. Original Super 8 footage was digitised, captions were introduced to give a 'silent movie' feeling and an appropriate sound track was added to produce a memorable piece of story-telling.
