One of the videos was shot in a first-person perspective with the use of a go-pro fixed to talent. We also filmed a three minute vox pop video featuring customers that we interviewed at three locations across Sydney.

We helped inform the creative approach and the logistics for all shoots, as well as providing shot-list and storyboard planning. Our inhouse production team shot all videos for the project and directed all videos in partnership with Sydney Trains.

Editing involved the inhouse creation of graphics and sound design/sound effects to aid the narrative and provide the videos with a humorous and playful tone.

33 Creative used their strong community connections to recruit and facilitate consultations with Aboriginal Health Workers and the community, in order to gain insight into the community knowledge and needs of the resources to be developed.

Cancer Institute NSW were open to early conversations to ensure that their approach to developing resources was as effective as possible, ensuring Aboriginal Health Workers and the community were informed, equipped and supported in navigating cancer prevention, screening and treatment for Aboriginal communities in NSW. Cancer Institute NSW later looped back with a second round of consultations to test the draft resources, based off the findings of the first consultations. This early and continuing dialogue is vital in creating resources that are of effective use and interest to target audiences.

We thank all consultation participants for their input in creating useful resources to support services for mob.

Visit the website to view the toolkit, share it with family and friends so that its availability is known. Together, we can help find, treat and prevent cancer in our communities ensuring our mob lead Healthy Lives.

 

Blak & Deadly: The First Nations Gala Concert

33 Creative were proud to support our friends at the Company We Keep who produced Blak & Deadly: The First Nations Gala Concert at the Sydney Opera House as part of Sydney WorldPride in March 2023. A big and bold celebration that took place on Tubowgule – ‘a place where Aboriginal people have feasted, sung, danced and told stories for many generations’, the event aimed to showcase Blak excellence in the Arts and highlight the future faces of First Nations LGBTQIA+ talent and artistry.

Mayrah, Chelsea, Emily and Denise helped out backstage on the night, a space they were familiar with having previously all worked on the legendary Deadly Awards. It was an honour to be involved in bringing a celebration of Blak excellence to the concert hall stage once again, and with it a bittersweet nostalgia.

The night was a huge success with an excited crowd and performers filling the iconic space with an uplifting and positive energy, from the buzzing foyer and glamorous Blak Carpet event to the inspiring performances.

‘Faboriginal’ comedian Steven Oliver was MC for the night and kept the crowd entertained with his trademark cheek and powerful spoken word poetry between performances from Electric Fields, Mo’Ju, Samuel Gaskin and the Merindas, special guest Indigenous Canadian tenor Jeremy Dutcher, and Jessica Mauboy supported by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and Sydney Philharmonic Choirs.

Ru Paul’s Drag Race Down Under star Kween Kong also graced the stage as did the fabulous World Pride’s Miss First Nation Supreme Queen contingency and winner, Torres Strait Queen, Cerulean!
