CHILD: This year, the 4th of August is all about me. Sometimes we find things tough, like going between two worlds and stuff. So we made a day to celebrate all the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander kids. Some ways we’re same, some ways we’re different. But my family, my community and my culture all keep me strong – so can you! To step up and show you care, visit the website. www.snaicc.org.au/children
In 2013 National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day was all about standing up for child rights. It’s about creating a space for people to come together and discuss children’s rights issues, to work together to improve mutual understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children’s rights, and to band together to protect these rights.
To get the message out there SNAICC produced beautiful animated 30 second Television Advertisement. Set against the music of Paul Kelly’s “From Little Things Big Things Grow” the ad tells the story of one Aboriginal boy and the things that keep him strong.
The ad was directed by Nick Butera, artwork design by Caroline Mudge, animation by Georgie Pinn, sound design by Mnemonic Audio, and most importantly brilliantly voiced by the deadly Lelly Cooper. Music was provided by Sony/ATV Music Publishing Australia
