The Challenge

Focus on Education

October, 2011

37 South Films recently produced an educational film for Metlink called ‘Metlink Adventures – The Challenge’.

This film is being used to educate primary school students on how to use public transport.  Apart from getting the important messages across, our biggest challenge was engaging an audience ranging from Prep to Grade 6.  We managed to achieve this with a great script, a great cast and a great production.

‘The Challenge’ has been nominated for the 2011 ATOM (Australia Teachers of Media) Award for Best Primary Education Video Resource – good luck to us!

37 South Films was engaged by Metlink to develop a DVD to assist in the delivery of key public transport safety messages as part of the Metlink Adventures primary school program. Since its launch in July the feedback from both teachers and students has been overwhelmingly positive. Teachers and students consider the character Arlo to be  ‘a great ambassador for public transport’.  The DVD is an excellent way to consolidate lessons learnt during the session.”
