Brumby doco emerges as surprise front runner

Two 2006 graduates of the SCCI Bachelor of Arts (Television production) – now known as the Bachelor of Stage and Screen (Television production) – have found success as crew members in a documentary about wild brumbies called The Man From Coxs River.

Kathryn Ward, on camera, and Matt Loft, on camera and stills, were key members of the documentary’s crew, which focused on a mission to save a mob of brumbies in an inaccessible wilderness.

The low-budget documentary was first screened at a cinema in Roseville in Sydney, and then in March 2014 at the Byron Bay Film Festival. It has collected more than $100,000 at 140 screenings around the country, as well as winning a 2014 National Trust Heritage Award in the Education Interpretation category in May.

Following its success, the film will now be screened by Event Cinemas more widely around the country.
