We love making films – for fun, to communicate, to educate and to empower. See below for a sample of some of the great films that have been made for clients or as part of a specific project.
We love making films – for fun, to communicate, to educate and to empower. Since starting out in business in late 2009 we have made over 500 commissioned films for an incredibly diverse range of clients/projects. We have worked extensively with non-profit organizations, government, corporate clients and the community sector. We have worked on projects big and small and while we are based in Melbourne we have rolled tape far and wide including in Alice Springs, Townsville, Palm Island, Tasmania, Adelaide, Sydney, Darwin, Nepal, Geneva, Papua New Guinea and regional Victoria.

Storykeepers is a unique multi media and community development initiative of social enterprise Youthworx and indigenous storyteller and author Boori Monty Pryor. Celebrating 10 years of Youthworx, and the 20th anniversary of Boori’s acclaimed autobiography MAYBE TOMORROW this project is the fruit of an ongoing collaboration. The project will be spearheaded by a feature length documentary following Boori as he comes to the tail-end of three decades performing in schools. A further series of community stories will be produced in collaboration with individuals and
communities who have worked with Boori.
‘Jebena Genie’ is an online web series being developed by comedian/actors Sam and Sami and produced in partnership with Youthworx. Jebena Genie infuses Ethiopian culture and the streets of Footscray into an age old tale. This humorous and insightful tale truly is a case of ‘be careful what you wish for.’
Brown Paper Bag
‘Brown Paper Bag’ was self produced by Youthworx and is the story of a young indigenous boy who has been ‘acting up’ at school until he experiences a story session at school with acclaimed author and storyteller Boori Monty Pryor. His interest in reading develops with the support of the school principal who smuggles Boori’s books out of the library for him, hidden in brown paper bags. It is a heart warming and endearing story that will serve as not only a beautiful film but also as a fantastic resource for schools.
Warrima is about dance – warrima – and how ancient ways still move the feet of young indigenous men across Australia.
From the train lines and graffiti walls of urban Melbourne, Koori Youth Will Shake Spears travel to the rainforest of Far North Queensland to dance alongside their ‘cousins’ Mayi Wunba.
Written and directed by Rali Hamasalih, ‘REFUGE’ is an incredibly powerful story set on Australia Day. The film gives us a little window into the experience of an asylum seeker waiting on a visa application, and reconciling his past with a sense of hope for the future despite his ‘status’.
This production is one of the most important stories we have ever supported at Youthworx so we implore you to watch, enjoy, reflect on, discuss and please pass around to your networks as we think this film should be widely viewed, thought about and hopefully studied.
The film was also developed with the support of The Spectrum Migrant Resource Centre,
