MW Creative has a reputation for producing quality video resources and products in the area of Indigenous health promotions, arts and education.
The principals Gaby Mason and Lotte Waters bring together many years of filmmaking and project management in the arts and culture sectors with a strong practical knowledge of working with Aboriginal people and communities.
The quality that marks our health videos apart is our ability to convey complex medical information in a way that is both engaging and easy to understand for our Indigenous audiences. We achieve this by using personal stories to share information, rather than the more conventional narration driven health videos.
We use animation in our work to visually explain complicated medical concepts.
We pay attention to the details of the product in the areas of design, packaging and music to make sure that it is appealing and culturally appropriate for our target audience.
Consultation is key to our working process.
We enjoy collaborating with health professionals and Aboriginal community members to clarify the information that needs to be conveyed in the video and to ensure that the style of storytelling, packaging and overall feel of the product are working for their target audience.
MW Creative is based in Sydney and has been operating since 2009. We work across all levels of projects and client liaison.
