Rachel O’Brien, FRSA of the prestigious RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce), visited Australia to speak an RSA Aus and NZ event called Enterprising Justice, it drew a high powered panel and audience members involved in this area.
Our brief was to produce three videos from this important event – one of the event, speakers and panel, one interview with Rachel explaining the project and also one of her talking about her role as editor of the RSA magazine.
The event took place in the Justice and Police Museum in Sydney which gave us the fantastic opportunity of have the setting reflecting the subject matter of the event.
Rachel O’Brien spoke of her involvement in a UK based pioneering project, setting up an alternative prison system that connects prisoners into the local community, while they are serving their sentence, and builds them new skills to use on release. The stated thesis of this approach is that being imprisoned in the punishment and therefor the goal needs to be giving prisoners the means to build a different life on release.
This was a great production to be commisioned to make, as the content was so meaningful, informative and important to capture.
