A Story of Melbourne Locked Down - Directed By SARAH HICKEY
Telling the story of Melbourne Locked Down
As a Melbourne-based video production company, we at Monster & Bear have had our film production services completely locked down under Stage 4 restrictions. During this period of isolation, our team started to think about ways we might be able to document and capture the thoughts and feelings of the people in the city around us.
In short, our thinking was “why not use this time to give a voice to the people of Melbourne and their everyday experiences of coping with Stage 4 lockdown”?
“Like most businesses in Melbourne, Monster & Bear has been completely locked down under Stage 4 restrictions. During this second period of isolation, our creative team started to think about ways we could document this extraordinary time in Australia's history, which was very different to the first lockdown. We felt the rest of Australia needed to understand what Melburnians were going through - their everyday experiences for better and for worse.”
