Created For Stepping Black

Produced By Pluggas

Funded by The Queensland Government Tackling Regional Adversity through Integrated Care (TRAIC) Program

Project Brief

Sometimes internal battles lead us to feeling far more alone than we really are.

Working in association with Stepping Black, Pluggas engaged with Burnett State College indigenous students to highlight the message of personal isolation and depression. The Lonely Student is one of twelve films Pluggas created for Queensland Health as part of their Tackling Regional Adversity through Integrated Care program.

Written by the indigenous Australian kids from Burnett State College. This film was created in 60mins from initial concept to wrap.

This series has been featured on the Hitnet network, which is in 50+ remote and indigenous communities across Australia. It's currently within the top 10 performing videos on their system. Viewed in multiple national and international film festivals.
