SHOOT DATES: 20th to 22nd of November | Ages over 18+ First Nations Only

For the Sydney Mob!

My name is Kerrod Meredith-Creed and I am emerging filmmaker based in Sydney and currently studying at the Australian Film Television and Radio School. As a proud man of many nations throughout Queensland including Gunggari, Kalkadoon and Darumbal, I am proud of culture and use the art of film making to bring social issues within First Nations people. My career started in broadcasting media and journalism and then transitioning into filmmaking. I've successfully created a short form documentary called ‘Between Worlds’ which aired in 2016 as part of the Our Stories series on NITV. Now at AFTRS I have worked as a Sound Recordist/Designer on numerous AFTRS and community based productions and has directed his owns documentary ‘Young, Black and Queer and podcast ‘I Was 14’.

As for my end of semester production, I’m creating a pilot proof of concept, in the form of a podcast. I’m looking for mob who’s keen in doing voice acting, to help bring these characters to life! Here’s what the story is about!

Logline: A group of high school graduates are ready to start their transition into adulthood but must face their own inner conflicts.

The story is a coming-of-age story following the members of ‘The Tribe’, who are Eddy, Dion, Kira, Imogen and Ash. Raised up in North Brisbane suburbs, all except Dion, they defy the odds that society puts against them by graduating high school. They soon realise that graduating was only the first step and now they have a chance to leave the community while transitioning into adulthood. Before they can leave, they have to conquer their own conflict that they haven’t dealt with before venturing into a huge wide world.
