JMC Cast & Crew
This project was an outreach project of sorts. Director Thomas Baricevic worked extensively with the Sudanese community and at the time JMC Melbourne campus had a range of Sudanese students studying in the FTV department. Thomas Baricevic
approached Peter George to collaborate on this project and the story was developed. Thomas physically wrote the script. Peter then sought to engage various students in a host of Cast and Crew roles that connected working professionals with existing students on a professional short film production.
