Best place to build your
property career in Canberra

Do you know unique or special individual (a Canberran) who would make a great documentary film?

By Kerehona 29 August 2011 36

I am a Canberra based filmmaker looking for a unique Canberran to make a short documentary film.

I’m looking for a person’s story that hasn’t been told in film.

The person can be someone following a dream or working in the arts, a sportsperson, a refugee, a firefighter – if you know anyone at all from Canberra’s diverse multicultural community who you think that their story should be told, I’d be very interested in hearing about them. 

Your help would be greatly appreciated. Please email Kris;   kriskerehonaproduction(at)gmail.com

Thank you.

What’s Your opinion?

+1 for the soup kitchen lady. As old as the hills and still working to help people – wonderful lady.

I have to disagree – wonderful lady but not a unique story.

How about Ric and Josh from The Clubhouse? They’re supporting new, local Dj’s etc. When you speak to them they really show that they are passionate about the music and are trying to do something new in Canberra. You don’t have to be into dubstep and electro to find it interesting and their relationship with Krave (who they rent off) is hilarious. A great, weird duo who are funny and loveable.

First of all I’m another film-maker and would be glad to help out. More importantly, I’ve heard about a guy who has llamas who takes them into the hospitals and visits sick children etc, and that is his life. I would need to gather more information, but I’ve often seen him around the Griffith shops, just hanging out with their llamas! Contact me if you’d like more info…

That would be Nils and Linda Lantzke.
You may remember them as the domestic partners and transporters of Honeycomb the alpaca and a few other llamas.

Is does he drive a little mazda 121, with the llama sticking its head out the back window? Or is that some other llama lover ’round Canberra?

Does the person have to still be alive and if not, how long ago could they have died? More info on the type of doco, audience and what you want to achieve would be good. I know you have said that you want a Canberran but is the doco for Canberrans? Also, it sounds like you might want someone who would be inspirational to others rather than just famous.

My vote would go to a homeless person or who is on the verge of being destitute. I often wonder about their backgrounds and what they hope for their future. Someone who is not in that situation as a result of drugs or alcohol (although they might have turned to self medication) such as mental or physical health issues or a family breakdown might help address some common held beliefs. Although I don’t know her reasons, Limestone Lilly might even be viable since she is so well known.

Also, young people facing (or who have faced) life altering serious health issues such as strokes, cancers or who are or were on waiting lists for organ transplants. People I know and have known in this situation are very inspirational and humbling, their views and values of life and death often evolve.

Thinking about this again, a person who will turn 100 in 2013 (Canberra’s 100th year) might be a good subject, but I don’t know how you would find them.

Now why didn’t you ask me 😉 ! Actually if you contact me on my email cuz, I have a couple of suggestions…actually, I’ll contact you…LOL!

I want to see Mully’s epic battle against the reptoids.

Ben_Dover 9:36 am 30 Aug 11

Seriously though, a doco on Mully, would be wonderful.

“The decline and fail of human evolution”, could be a working title.
