Director's Statement

This documentary to me represents a homegrown true blue Aussie story in the community. 

 

The topic explored in this documentary is one that is universal to all in which is diversity in the workplace centred around differently-abled people. I wanted to show that anyone regardless of what they are born with - can pursue their aspirations and give it a "red hot go". 

 

The future of this documentary is that I want it to become a platform piece in which people can relate to and can activate change in the workplace in the coming future. This documentary highlights the universal story of aspiration and diversity - you might have a "Josie" in your local community! 

 

I'd like to give a special thank you to our interview subjects. without you all, we would not have the stars of the show! Thank you very much Sonya, Amanda, and especially to our leading lady Josie. 

I enjoyed making and creating this documentary but I would not have done it without my fellow team members. I would like to give a personal thank you to Brendan, Nino, Kiani, Adrian and Adam for creating this documentary.
