In partnership with storytelling agency Enthral, AFL legend Kevin Sheedy has voiced a ‘Love Letter to Victoria’ using visuals to showcase the state’s natural beauty and culture.
Victoria has been hit with the worst of the coronavirus pandemic compared with any other Aussie state, experiencing four lockdowns.
Sheedy partnered with Enthral to share a love letter in hopes of reviving the passion for his home state Victoria.
“Victoria is still the jewel in Australia’s crown, but everywhere I look, whether it be on the news or social media, all I see is negativity towards our great state,” he said.
“The Botanic Gardens, Olympic Boulevard, the Shrine, MCG and a magnificent cultural and arts centre, spread-eagled by the best restaurants in Australia; that’s what I love about Victoria and Melbourne.
“Love conquers everything – even a pandemic.”
Enthral’s managing director, Cameron Smith, said: “No matter if you are a visitor or you’re lucky enough to live in Victoria, you can’t help but fall in love with our special state. We wanted to remind people why it is special, and the perfect way to do that is with a love letter.
“We thank Sheeds for sharing our vision and volunteering his time to be a part of this passion project.”
