Bachelor of Creative Media Production

VAKA is a 20 min. documentary about the remote island community of Tokelau, a Pacific leader in action on climate change. The story reveals the inroads that Tokelau is making toward long-term solutions, as the community weaves together customary wisdom and collective resilience with scientific knowledge and modern technologies. Celebrating the Tokelauan people's dedication to preserving their islands, VAKA aims to inspire the world to follow their environmental leadership.

Working on a client project that provides an international platform for indigenous voices was both a privilege and honour. From health and safety, to accounting and post-production, producing VAKA was a fulfilling experience. It has allowed me to explore my potential as an emerging creative practitioner and follow my passion for emotive storytelling.
