The Bush to Belly Documentary project Opportunity for partnerships displaying corporate social responsibility REDgum Communications is offering businesses and government the opportunity to align with a high-profile enablement program for indigenous youth. Bush to Belly is a practical framework creating demonstrable positive outcomes in education, engagement and financial independence. In the lives of indigenous people in Northern Australia, identified critical issues include health, education, employment and overall wellbeing. In order to address these areas in and around the concept of ‘closing the gap’, it’s important to share success stories. And Bush to Belly is a ripper. Corporate partners will benefit from being associated with an informative, world-class television production that will highlight the Bush to Belly educational model and its impact on the remote Yiyili community. The film will capture the success of the sustainable Bush to Belly business model and the highs and lows of mobile café life; bulldust, bikes, coffee and culture. It’s a story of engagement through laughter and lattes, and empowering one of the remotest communities on earth.

The Bush to Belly documentary – Synopsis A fancy Italian espresso machine lands in a remote community in the Australian outback. Indigenous students learn how to make ‘city-style’ coffees for tourists. They put the machine in a four-wheel drive and make lattes and macchiatos for the bike riders on a week-long race on the Gibb River Road. They learn to communicate with the formerly intimidating whitefellas. They learn how to run a sustainable business. And now they make the ‘deadliest’ coffee for hundreds of kilometres. ‘…bulldust, bikes and rich cultural exchange, as a group of indigenous kids shape their destinies…’ In May 2014, REDgum Communications will film a documentary to be screened on national television, that captures the life-affirming adventure of ‘Bush to Belly’ on the Gibb River Road in Western Australia’s incredible Kimberley. In and around the remote Yiyili community, then over a week in the dust and mud, we get to know a shy but enthusiastic group of skillful indigenous kids. They’re budding barista entrepreneurs crafting lattes, macchiatos and espressos for ‘Gibbsters’ - lycra-clad cyclists tackling the 700+km Gibb Challenge on the famous outback ‘highway’. The young baristas learn how the bikers like their crafted caffeine, how to entertain and relate to them, and ultimately; how they can shape their own destinies.

The Yiyili community is 170 kms south east of Fitzroy Crossing in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. The Yiyili Aboriginal Community School (YACS) was established as an alternative to the hostel located in Halls Creek. It’s one of several Aboriginal Independent Community Schools in Western Australia, and is governed by a board comprising the principal and elected community members. The school operates a bus to transport children from 6 out-station communities in the area.

The Bush to Belly documentary – About Bush to Belly Bush to Belly began with Yiyili students learning how to source and prepare a wide range of foods, using both blackfella and whitefella methods. Hospitality teacher at Hamilton District Skills Centre in Victoria, Anthony ‘Gilly’ MacGillivray, trains Yiyili students in nutrition, food preparation and barista skills. Equipped with their new knowledge and confidence, students set up a successful café for tourists, which they named Bush to Belly. Yiyili school students engage with busloads of tourists during the dry season, who stop to browse local art at the Laari Gallery. The Bush to Belly kids then go mobile - transporting their espresso machine along the Kimberley’s ‘super highway’, making the best coffee for hundreds of kilometres in any direction for caffeine-loving cyclists on a great adventure. It’s one of the gnarliest mountain bike rides on the planet - the 700+km Gibb Challenge - and in May 2014, we’ll be there to film two cultures working together for the enrichment of each other.

Word of the young baristas making ‘city coffee’ spread through tour companies, and Bush to Belly has become a regular stop-off that enriches the experiences of tourists and the students alike. The Yiyili youngsters develop workplace skills – including food and coffee preparation, service skills and small business operation – in a supportive environment. They build confidence and self-esteem and engage with people from around Australia and the world. The Bush to Belly documentary – Outcomes Producing an engaging, entertaining and ultimately joyous documentary for television will enable Bush to Belly’s remarkable achievements in student engagement and empowerment to reach a wide audience, showcasing the value of a collaborative, experiential approach to indigenous education. This will help Bush to Belly to continue to grow at Yiyili and into other communities, changing lives and cross-cultural understanding for the better. Having the Bush to Belly documentary screened on national television will bring exposure to a positive model of social and financially responsible development. It will also bring joy to people who love a good yarn, amazing scenery and inspiring characters! We are happy to have Genovese and KeepCup supporting our project providing rewards for our wonderful Pozible.com/bushtobellydoco donors!

Reasons to make the Bush to Belly documentary Apart from the fun and characters that this story will bring to the screen, there are some sobering reasons we think enabling projects like this one are important. Indigenous Australians continue to experience devastating affects of colonisation: • Life expectancy is 17 years less than that of non-indigenous Australians • Unemployment rate is three times higher • Indigenous students are half as likely to complete high school. • The infant mortality rate is triple than that of non-indigenous Australians and • Indigenous Australians have significantly higher rates of mental health problems, chronic diseases and disabilities. Many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people live on their traditional country. Forced migration into urban areas has proved to be detrimental to health, education and cultural identity. It’s important for grassroots projects to provide sustainable educational and employment opportunities that enable communities to have the same choices that most of the population takes for granted about where to live and how to support themselves independently.

The Bush to Belly documentary – About The Gibb Challenge The annual Gibb Challenge is a mountain bike relay along 700+ kilometres of the unforgiving Gibb River Road through the Kimberley. Participants ride in teams, taking turns to each ride a stretch of the rough road. The principal aim of the event is to raise community awareness and money for charity. In 2013 the Gibb Challenge raised over $310,000 for The Royal Flying Doctor Service. Riders embark on this grueling journey at the port town of Derby, heading up through the guts of The Kimberley and finishing at the world acclaimed El Questro Wilderness Park. The Bush to Belly documentary – Corporate social responsibility partnerships REDgum Communications is offering businesses the opportunity to align with a high-profile enablement program for indigenous youth. It’s essentially a visual story based on a positive case study. The first collaboration has been established with Swinburne University of Technology (SUT) - which is active in indigenous programs in Australia’s north - to support the development of visual, digital and communications technology. A crowdfunding page established at Pozible.com/bushtobellydoco, was successful in raising $15,000, and building a strong network of social media advocates and supporters for the project. There are four Corporate Social Responsibility partnerships available: 1 Primary Bush to Belly documentary partner $20,000 2 Bush to Belly documentary supporting partner $10,000 3 Bush to Belly documentary supporting partner $10,000 4 Bush to Belly documentary supporting partner $10,000 Please direct all enquiries to James Freemantle: james@redgumcommunications.com 0411 592 299 03 9690 0102 Studio 303/87 Gladstone Street South Melbourne VIC 3205

The Bush to Belly documentary – How the funds will be used The Bush to Belly documentary will be a professionally produced, broadcast-quality film made for television and the costs include: • Writing • Multi-camera filming on-location in Victoria and Western Australia • Script editing • Video editing • Audio and visual equipment • Still photography • Musical score • Production management and administration • Audio post-production • Production launch • Distribution • Incendiaries: travel and accommodation The Bush to Belly documentary is being produced on a frugal budget with high expectations of quality. Crew are working at a reduction to commercial rates. Risk and challenges With any outdoor filming project, we’re at the mercy of the elements, which brings some risk. Our distance from Yiyili presents communications and logistical challenges, however all communications, permissions, arrangements and plans have so far progressed smoothly, and we are tremendously motivated to make this production entertaining, insightful and useful. There’s a risk the film might not be screened widely. With a meticulous plan and sophisticated shoot, edit, score, promotion and distribution strategy, we are maximising the chances of securing broadcast on national and international screens.
