Working with kids on the Our Day Project

Right now Kelly and I are back in Timor Leste after an amazing week working with a primary school in the Northern Territory. The kids at the school are taking part in the Our Day Project, a film that documents a day in the life of children in different parts of the world.

Our Day is a collaboration between ChildFund Australia’s ChildFund Connect program and the Queensland Government, and will involve hundreds of children across South East Asia and the South Pacific. All the footage will be taken by children, using pocket video cameras.

We’ll be spending the next few weeks working with the kids in different countries – most of the children we’ve worked with before so it will be really interesting to see how their ideas and skills have developed.

The teaser below includes clips made by children in Australia, Vietnam, Laos and Timor Leste. It’s a great little promo of what is yet to come – a film about children, made by children. Check out the video and let us know what you think!
