Work Mate

Work Mate
2014 – Writer/Director
16 minutes
Client – Australia Post


When an introverted office worker is invited by his work mate with a vision impairment to go cycling, he tries desperately to find a way out of it.

A piece of branded content I wrote and directed for Australia Post’s Real Stories Project.

This film was inspired by the true story of an Australia Post employee with vision impairment who lives life to the full. It has been used as a training resource to raise awareness about the importance of inclusion in the workforce, as well as this, it has been showcased at various community screenings and film festivals to give voice to the importance of inclusive employment.
