Camp Gallipoli – 100th Anniversary of ANZAC/Gallipoli

By | Engine Room, Online video, Video Production | No Comments

At the end of 2014 Engine Room was engaged by BNM Waterfront to produce a suite of content for Camp Gallipoli events around Australia.

The films featured all of Australia’s past and current Victoria Cross recipients (Keith Payne, Daniel Keirghan, Mark Donaldson, Ben Roberts-Smith, Cameron Baird – represented via his father Doug), television legend Ray Martin, ambassadors Shane Warne and Shannon Noll, and Ben Roberts-Smith also presented. We also conducted spectacular drone shoots at Sydney’s Hyde Park War Memorial and Turimetta Beach.

One of the highlight pieces was the below “Together at Gallipoli” film. On Saturday 11th April, 22 children, representing many of the cultures that fought together at Gallipoli, came together to shoot a beautiful, evocative celebration of the multiculturalism behind the Anzac Spirit. The children not only each performed a piece of dialogue to camera, but remained a unit as a drone hovered nearby for 10 minutes with crew and parents out of shot.

Camp Gallipoli events were held on Anzac Eve in all major Australian capital cities. Engine Room was proud to be a production partner for such a noteworthy event.

The film premiered on board the Starship to a select group of investors, media and special guests and was then released online via Crown’s home page and social channels. Within four hours of release, Crown secured a sell-out of its apartments, and we were honoured to have been involved.

Thanks to Ensemble, we travelled to RAAF Amberley (the largest base in the Southern Hemisphere) to document the RAAF Flight Camp, a program offering young women the chance to experience a working RAAF base.

The resulting two-minute video appeared across social media channels and, to reach its core target audience, on Dolly’s website.
