VAM loves working with passionate creatives to help tell their story and find their audience. We believe in the power of the Arts and the value it holds for all of us. So let’s share that around. From music videos to live performances, mural installations to animations. We absolutely love the process of creativity and the impact art in all its forms has on our everyday. We also play with some of our own art projects and events in amongst making some sweet vidz.
We hope you enjoy a selection of our projects below. In the main video player is Djinda Djinda Kanangoor, a Noongar version of Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star. Written and recorded by Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse as part of Community Arts Networks ‘Lullabies’ program. The video was the winner of best Indigenous video at the 2020 ATOM Awards and was directed by Danni Booth.
SAN CISCO | Music Video
As Covid-19 iso-restrictions began to ease in Perth, San Cisco gave us a call with a loose idea for a music video for their new single ‘On the Line’ with a super tight turn-around. We went for a fun and heartwarming vibe and a slightly over exposed but warm polaroid look. It’s a coming out of iso love story.
PETER BIBBY | Music Video
What a day we had shooting this music video around Jarrahdale and Serpentine near Perth. Director Brendan Hutchens worked closely with musician Peter Bibby on the concept. A hitch-hikers love story with a twist. The cast nailed their roles, superbly captured by DOP Jim Frater ACS and edited by Steve Hughes. Love it.
CINEMA PRAGUE | Live
CP reformed especially for the 10 Nights in Ports Festival 19th July 2019. Here’s the first song. Thanks Brendan Hutchens @ Vam Media for filming and producing this. A great thank you to Stu McLaughlan for the live sound and audio mixdown. Also maximum thank you and respect to Dave Pensabene @ Hopping Mouse Studio. Please enjoy and MUST ROCK.
THE FIELD GUIDE TO HOMEMAKING | Public Art
Davey Craddock plays ‘Keep On Waiting’ live on a boat in Kings Square Fremantle for the temporary public art project The Field Guide To Homemaking by Andrew Christie. A former timber cruiser beauty named Cooinda was saved from rotting at a local yard with the idea to turn it into an art project. It became the centrepiece for the Fremantle Festival in 2015 and was home to performances, workshops, dinners and conversations.
FREO DOORS PROJECT | Small scale street art
A little colour can go a long way. VAM Media pitched an idea to building owner Silverleaf Investments to commission Fremantle mural artists to paint dark, tired and tagged service doors at a couple of properties in Fremantle. There were 5 doors and 3 artists that carried out the work. We wanted to show that art can address these sorts of issues and also brings vibrancy to street level while providing local artists with a platform.
ANYA BROCK | Mural Installation at Louis Baxters Cafe
We love making install and process videos with artists. Anya Brock is an inspiring artist and impressive business professional. She is incredibly focussed and her works, both big and small, are well known and loved. This piece is at Louis Baxters Coffee in Subiaco. Rhys Jones nailed the shoot and edit.
