We recently conducted an aerial survey for East Gippsland Catchment Management Authority which looked at a stretch of the Mitchell River.
Working with Dale from Fluid Motion, we documented a 5 kilometre stretch of river and bank which will have willows removed, the banks destabilised and the area re vegetated.
We will be returning over the life of the project to document the changes.
Over the last 12 months, Drfit Media has been working with the West Gippsland Catchment Management Authority, South Gippsland Landcare and GippsDairy on a media project which focusses on Corner Inlet.
The project looked at the Inlet from a stakeholders perspective and reinforced the message that all users along the waterway and up in the catchment were interconnected.
As part of the process, the Agencies ran a Farmer and Fisher Day where farmers were taken out to the fishing grounds, and in return, fishers were then taken onto the farm.
There’s interesting things happening above and below the waves. Corner Inlet has experienced changes to its seagrass meadows and scientists are trying to work out why.
Drift Media recently completed a fantastic project which utilised GPS mapping and historical information.
In partnership with the West Gippsland Regional Library and the Wonthaggi Historical Society, the project focussed on 7 sites around the town.
Using portable devices such as iPads and Mp3 recorders, the Historical Society sourced images, wrote scripts and recorded their voiceovers to produce several short form movies.
These movies were then uploaded to a Youtube channel-https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdFPl5BdCinYfsTzLP_XUTA
From there, the Youtube movies were linked to GPS points around the town.
To access the tour simply follow the instructions below:

Drift Media in partnership with Mezzanine Productions recently produced a play called Out of the Blue. The play premiered in San Remo on the 3rd October and centred on men’s health and depression, with a specific focus on rural areas.
Working with some fine local acting talent, the performance was extremely well received, and was reviewed in the South Coast Sentinel Times.
On the success and reaction to the first performance, the play was also performed in Wonthaggi in early November.
It is hoped that the play can tour regional areas in the future.
A documentary outlining the process that the performers and agencies went through can be viewed below.
