SBS Creative has engaged production house SPLINTR to create a film for SBS VICELAND’s Take Me There short-form series that tells unique, Australian stories.
The series connects people with real themes and issues that affect everyday young Aussies through an intimate personal story. The idea is to tell a range of diverse short stories over a journey, each resolving at an unknown location that acts as a pivotal turning point.
SPLINTR’s episode, written and directed by Gavain Browne, features Wani Lado (pictured above), a 19-year-old Sudanese rapper living in Western Sydney whose passion for music provided an escape from a potentially volatile domestic situation.
“Spending time with Wani and his crew and being able to contribute to telling his story was a real privilege,” Browne said.
“Collaborating with the guys at SBS VICELAND was an absolute pleasure, and I’m really proud of what we created.”
Derek Best, creative lead at SBS VICELAND, said: “Gav has an incredible knack for creating engaging and cinematic films, and an amazing ability to bring a story to life through the lens.
“We are thrilled with his contribution to SBS VICELAND’s ‘Take Me There’ campaign.
