VAM loves working with passionate creatives to help tell their story and engage with a broad audience.
Our videos have consistently done just that for artists, musicians, performers, festivals and exhibitions over our 8 years in operation. We have worked heaps with the Fremantle Festivals team, Perth Festival, Melville City Arts & Events, Heathcote Gallery, Freo. Social and a whole bunch of beautiful creatives 😉 We also play with some of our own Arts projects and events in amongst making sweet vids. VAM is incredibly passionate about the power of the Arts and the value it holds for all of us. Let’s share that around!
Fremantle International Street Arts Festival
What a thrill it is to be amongst the crowd on the streets of historic Fremantle as the world’s best street performers do their thing. It’s one of our absolute favourite times of year and is such a buzz to be a part of.
VAM Media’s ability to deliver high quality, engaging videos super fast is a real advantage as content can be distributed as the festival is happening and this encourages people to come and join in. The videos distributed across social media platforms engage thousands of views and in the last two years we have produced a ten second loop for displays at Perth Train Station. Don’t miss the next Fremantle International Street Arts Festival.
West Australian artists Tom Mùller and Ned Beckley (Agency 296) collaborated to present the 2019 ART IN PLACE project. Their artwork Sonic Hill was a site-specific audio sculpture that invited audiences to ‘hear’ a renewed sense of place from 12 April to 28 April 2019 at Wireless Hill, Ardross.
The City of Melville engaged VAM Media to produce promotional videos. Our approach is always one of creative storytelling and we used the voices of the artists underneath visuals of the work with the live soundscape design enlivening the abstract ambience. It worked well and was greatly received.
Watch the install video as well. It’s cool – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YkP4uw8PbBg
Djinda Djinda Kanangoor is a Noongar version of one of the most loved children’s lullabies – Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star. The song was written and recorded by Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse as part of the Community Arts Network ‘Lullabies’ project – a music art and language program designed specifically for Aboriginal families to encourage language revival.
VAM Media was engaged to produce a creative and imaginative storybook style lyric video for the song. The team we brought together put a huge amount of love into this project and we all feel it worked out beautifully.

Often street art is about large scale walls with lots of exposure but street level can be a missed opportunity. We took that thought and worked with building owner Silverleaf Investments and Fremantle BID to engage local artists to create work on heavily tagged service door areas where constant painting over of tagging was costing money. VAM organised and produced this project and also captured the process with some short videos. Small scale street art brings interest to street level spaces.
Brendan from VAM was really keen to produce a major public artwork and had just the seed of an idea to plonk a large boat in the port city of Fremantle’s town square. After acquiring a large 1960s timber vessel Brendan approached artist Andrew Christie aka A Good Looking Man and he came up with the concept The Field Guide to Homemaking. Funded through the City of Fremantle’s temporary public art program the work made a huge impact during Fremantle Festival 2015.
GREAT WALL OF FINE CHINA
Street art process videos have become a genre in their own right and are so captivating to watch as artworks take shape. As a documentary film maker the story behind the work and the process involved provides such an interesting narrative so when approaching art videos focussing on more than just a visual representation is of great interest. We like to produce a suite of videos. The story which is more like a short documentary. The install which is like a music video and a shorter version good for socials. What a package! So much fun to shoot as well.
