Film students across Australia have been struggling to make films while locked down in isolation. The lucky ones are living with actors. QUT noticed that this is a moment in history, and went meta-doc on the times.
US government images of COVID-19 are getting even creepier.
What to do with 63 film students trapped away from each other? Make an eight part web series on ways in which COVID-19 has affected people.
According to the release, 'The result, From Home was launched on YouTube on the weekend (21 June) and includes episodes about the impact of COVID-19 on homelessness, international students, finding love, and teachers struggling to work online, as well as a beautiful ode to grandparents.'
These are third year films, the final project before graduation. They are:
- Near and Far (international students stuck in QLD during the lockdown)
- Put To The Test (teachers working from home as all schools shut down)
- Double Crisis (supporting those below the poverty line during COVID-19)
- A Better World (the effect of COVID-19 restrictions on senior citizens)
- Online Connections (Online relationships can be as powerful and meaningful as those in the real world)
- Over the Fence (A family whose child has a rare health condition shares their experience of lockdown)
- Swiping Through Lockdown (finding Love during Lockdown)
- To the World (a collection of creative submissions from around the world)
The first half are already on Youtube. Here is then trailer:
