International Day of People with Disability

International Day for People with Disability is a very special landmark where we celebrate disability with the aim to increase global awareness by shinning a light on a sometimes avoided subject.

It was an absolute joy to produce this film with the TelstrAbility team. Telstra is very proud of the incredibly talented and diverse range of employees they have and welcome all their abilities, passion and contributions that help their organisation.

Filmed in the height of yet another Covid-19 lockdown, it was a real privilege to sit with members of the TelstrAbility team who courageously stepped forward into the limelight to illuminate some of the confronting questions and biases they face into on a daily basis.

Beautiful and thought provoking are the three words echoed internally within our business and across socials regarding this video.
Taste nailed the tricky balance of keeping it bold while respecting the hearts and minds of those involved. So inclusive!
Never had so much fun and joy making a piece like this with such a strong message.
