At Why Documentaries our aim is to Question. Question Everything. Find. Find the real story and Share what we find with the world. We work locally but always with a global view.
We see our work as important on a number of levels. To raise empathy. To enable equitable access to information. To showcase the positive.
We work on projects with all communities with culturally appropriate and in-language videos. We have worked with over 30 different communities. We do video, digital stories, animation, youtube videos, documentaries, short films and any video content.
We target audiences - sometimes the hardest audiences - to create positive behavioural change, whatever the message, there's a way to reach audiences effectively.
Some of the organisations we have worked with include University of Wollongong/University of NSW (Dementia/Homelessness Awareness Documentary), Wollongong City Council (awareness and education videos from surf safety, to living books, cross cultural awareness and history) Cancer Council - in Hindi, Vietnamese, Cancer Institute - Arabic, Cantonese/Mandarin, English, SES - If it's flooded, forget it campaign, Fire and Rescue NSW, NSW Department of Education, Dementia Australia (11 languages) and many others. Over 20 twenty years we have produced hundreds of hours of content.
