Be Dragons seeks crowdfunding support

By | business, Football | No Comments

Producing Be Dragons TV series has been an inspiring journey. Enriched with new friendships and one filled with gratitude for the players and all those who have supported the team and TV series. It’s your story and one that we are proud to be bringing to life and to audiences across Australia.

So far, through the tireless efforts, talent and enthusiasm of Luke Massey and his production team, the six part series has been produced and edited with donated time and resources.

But now we need help from the community, friends and family to get Be Dragons ready for national broadcast.

Our crowdfunding campaign is now live util May 26th, and it’s success means we can cover the out-of-pocket costs associated with the post-production process. Without which, this story of our courageous team may never be told…

It’s an all or nothing campaign so we need to hit our target to ensure success.

From all of us at Be Dragons, we thank you so much for your support.

Luke, Lisa and Marilyn

PAPUA NEW GUINEA DOCUMENTARY

 

World class documentary, Wantok Meri, focuses on the lives of the women of Papua New Guinea and has been selected for the ABC Australia network.

The documentary follows the stories of seven women in the lead up to the 2017 election, which they hope will prove a pivotal point for their nation, currently entrenched in a patriarchal society.

“When we come out of the house, when we come to work. We are the strongest women, we can do our work, we can stand and make decisions at the place of work.”

Betelnutsellers Simbu

The films’ stars come from a variety of callings; Entrepreneurs, Tourism professionals, Teacher’s, and Police Officers. These women whole-heartedly speak of their early struggles, the turning points they have reached and their current motivation to improve the lives of their families.

Paupa New Guinea is different, the clash of cultures is stark and dramatic. It’s common to see woman selling produce on the side of the road, next to the latest mobile phone cards. What impact will the technology have? According to some; no one is spending time learning the traditional ways, they are all on facebook!

 

Wantok Meri, available for international rights from Meadow Media. To find out more please email us. sales@meadowmedia.tv
