Artist Hego has combined with filmmaker Tim Anastasi and line producer Kimberley Low to work on the documentary Black Anzac, about Hego's attempts to tell the untold story of Indigenous service in WW1 through his street art.
Hego - street artist
Hego is an artist practicing in Australia and internationally, currently focusing on telling local stories with images, specifically with the process of 'wheatpasting' (large scale postering). He has previously worked with Stationary Movement Films on the short film #magneticstreetart and has recently completed his first stateside mural of the 'Black Cowboys' of North Philly. Hego studied architecture for three years at the University of Sydney before quitting to personally manage the first American cricket clubs' tour to Australia - a club which was formed as a gang intervention program in South Central Los Angeles.
Tim Anastasi - filmmaker
Tim is a full time video professional, working regularly with Destination NSW, SBS and NITV as well as various private clients as director, cameraman and editor. Having worked with NITV for nearly four years, he has seen the disparities between Indigenous and non-Indigenous cultures, and more importantly cultural engagement be it through music, film or TV. The Black Anzac film is close to Tim's heart and his personal contribution to bridging the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australia. You can see Tim's work at www.stationarymovement.com
Kimberley Low - photographer
Kimberley Low is a professional photographer based in Sydney, focusing on documentary and food photography. With a wealth of social media and community engagement experience from her days as president of the University of Sydney Photographic Society, she is working on the Black Anzac project to provide both images documenting the mural's story and also support for the Pozible crowdfunding campaign.
