Wash Your Hands Before and After Touching Someone’s Feet!

Last year we filmed an instructional video for the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), looking at infection prevention and control in a podiatry setting.


Filming a scene in the podiatrist’s rooms

The video starred Sonya Suares as the hygiene-aware podiatrist, and Linden Compassi as the patient with an unidentified foot problem. It was filmed in a secret location in Melbourne’s southeast, which was deemed appropriate to stand in for all of Australia.

We filmed the video with the Canon C100 mkII using the 24-70mm 2.8 lens and recorded to the Atomos Ninja Flame recorder in Pro Res HQ. We recorded audio with the Rode NTG-3 mic and edited the footage on Adobe Premiere Pro.


Here’s the crew giving much consideration to the next shot (or possibly thinking about lunch)

The video was directed and edited by James McArthur, produced and scripted by Michael McArthur, shot by Clancy Walker, audio by Ash Jones, hair & makeup by Marg Annesley, voiceover by Steven Sheeren and voiceover recording by Sonic Playground (see below).

If you’d like to learn more about the infection prevention and control protocols in a podiatry setting, just sit back and watch the video.


Event Videos

Event videos are something we’re regularly asked to produce for clients, and we do them really well. We’ve been covering small to large events for the best part of 20 years, filming speakers, networking, entertainment and social aspects of meetings, conferences and exhibitions, and delivering highlights videos (often edited on the run and played during the final plenary session), promo videos for the following year’s event, as well as full speakers’ presentations.

We normally shoot the conferences using a number of cameras (wielded by between 2 and 5 crew depending on the size of the event) including  a Canon C100 mkII, a Sony FS7, a DJI Osmo, a GoPro, a Phantom4 drone and a Rhino slider.

The following videos are examples of some recent work.

Film Victoria Screen Leader Awards

Film Victoria recently held their Screen Leader Awards where they honoured 5 leading industry practitioners.

We were lucky enough to produce the video testimonials for the night, which you can see here below (via the Film Victoria YouTube channel).

Film Victoria supplied the film & television footage, while we conducted the interviews with our Canon C100 Mk II with some fast prime lenses (the 50mm and 85mm from memory) and recording to the Atomos Ninja Flame, with the exception of the 3 Greg McLean testimonials which were filmed by the speakers themselves.

Community Program Videos for AusPost

Over the past couple of months we’ve travelled around the country filming various community groups who have been the lucky recipients of Australia Post grants.

We’ve travelled far and wide to Alice Springs, Murray Bridge, Bendigo, Dandenong, Campbellfield and Preston (not that far) interviewing representatives of community groups who, respectively, support immigrants, the elderly, the disabled and indigenous basket weavers!

We’ve used a variety of video equipment during the project, filming interviews with the Canon C100 Mark II, and capturing overlay with the Sony FS7, the Phantom4 drone, the GoPro Hero4, the Canon 5D, the DJI Osmo and the Rhinoslider.

It’s been a lot of fun and we hope to travel farther and wider over the coming months.

You can watch two of the videos below, namely the Old Church on the Hill (Bendigo) and the Murray Mallee Aged Care Group (Murray Bridge).

Exclusive Interview with Santa

Santa Mail 1

Commissioned by Javelin Australia, we recently had the opportunity to conduct an exclusive interview with Santa. Not some half-arsed, drunken imitation, but the real thing.

Santa was in Melbourne to explain how kids can get in touch with him via the old-fasioned method of writing a letter.


“Send your letters to Santa,” urged Santa, “at North Pole 9999. Put a 70c stamp on the envelope and write your name and address on the back.”

He promised to reply to every letter. Quite a task, but he’s up for it.


We then chatted to some children at Newport Lakes Primary School in Melbourne, who completed the task with little effort and also told us what they were hoping to get for Christmas.

Watch out for the resultant videos on Auspost’s social media pages and various news networks as we approach Christmas.

Filming and Eating for Grill’d


We’ve had the opportunity to eat our way through the Grill’d menu recently, while filming interviews with award nominees and B-roll footage at various Grill’d restaurants around the country. With a license to be creative and arty, we captured some great images of new restaurants and outstanding staff.


We also filmed Grill’d’s conference in Melbourne earlier this week, and edited a conference closing video on the fly, working around the clock to ensure the tight deadline was met. This is a great way to reinforce business strategies and have a laugh about good times just had.


We celebrated a job well done with a Grill’d burger.  (Try the Glorious Goat’s Cheese lamb burger.)

Yut Art & Film Victoria Working on the ‘Behind the Screen’ Series

Yut Art is currently working with Film Victoria on the ‘Behind the Screen’ documentary series. The series focuses on the opportunities available in Victorian to produce high quality films, tv shows and game development.

So far we’ve heard from Robert Connolly (director of the Gallipoli TV drama) and Marion Boyce (costume designer for Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries). The next in the series is an interview with Many Monkeys’ game designers Matt Ditton and Timothy Best.
