Late last year 2019, I was contacted by Tennis SA to film a promotional piece for the new Adelaide International Tennis tournament. They had an idea to try and showcase how close the location was to the rest of the CBD. Here is the finished video.
The 5 x 5 minute online documentary series for whimn.com.au explores the loss and grief surrounding miscarriage, and the impact it has on individuals and families. Following the stories of those with firsthand experience, the series will also feature perspectives from obstetricians, researchers and support organisations and will also explore isolation through miscarriage in some of the most remote regional areas of Australia.
You Are Not Alone, produced by local production company Redman Media was recently successful in receiving much needed funding towards the production of the series by Screen Australia. The all-female production crew includes Director/Producer Lyndal Redman and Producers Caroline Winter (ABC) and Lauren Hillman (Pohs Kitchen, The Daters ABC).
“It has been two years developing the project and to have the backing of such an important funding body such as Screen Australia was truly amazing” said Lyndal.
whimn.com.au editor Eliza Cracknell said: “We are honoured to be able to provide a platform for Lyndal's documentary. Miscarriage not only impacts one in four women, but can also have a wider reaching influence over all society and family units. Stories like these are powerful to start conversations that make us think, challenge and change taboos."
The series will be released later in the year on the With Her In Mind Network, Australia’s leading digital women’s network, and has received principal production investment from Screen Australia.
