Protecting Waterbirds

VEWH

The Victorian Environmental Water Holder (VEWH) is an independent statutory body responsible for holding and managing Victoria’s environmental water entitlements.

THE CLIENT’S BRIEF

VEWH wanted a video summary of their annual report with a particular emphasis on their contribution to the protection of waterbirds in the context of climate change.

THE STORY REIMAGINED

We reimagined this story as best communicated by a waterbird expert with extensive field work experience alongside comment from the Executive Officer of VEWH. Reimagine Films sourced all the non-interview footage and photos through associated water agencies and organisations.

THE RESULTS

This short film bolstered recognition of VEWH’s regional partnerships with Catchment Management Authorities and increased community appreciation for why environmental water flows are needed. VEWH re-commissioned Reimagine Films the following year.

“STEVE WAS VERY EASY TO WORK WITH AND INCREDIBLY THOROUGH. WHEN THE PROJECT CHANGED DIRECTION AFTER THE INITIAL BRIEF, HE ADAPTED QUICKLY TO ENSURE HIS FINAL OUTPUT WOULD MEET OUR EXPECTATIONS AND HIS OWN HIGH STANDARDS OF PRODUCTION. HE CRAFTED A SCRIPT THAT COMPLETELY ENCAPSULATED THE MESSAGES WE WANTED AND SOURCED A WIDE RANGE OF IMAGES TO HELP TELL THE STORY. THE RESULT WAS A RICHER, MORE MEANINGFUL VIDEO THAT IN FACT EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS.”
