Focus on Celebrating 50 Years

November, 2010

McConnell Dowell, an internationally-renowned global engineering company, celebrates its 50th birthday in 2011. To commemorate, 37 South Films has produced a film celebrating the life of the company and championing the people that make up McConnell Dowell.

Over a period of four months we filmed and/or interviewed over 200 people in Singapore, New Zealand, Port Hedland, Adelaide, Maroochydore and Melbourne. We filmed underground, above ground and on water, capturing tunnels, pipelines, refineries, desalination plants, cruise terminals, fabrication plants and iron ore berths. It was an epic edit that took about a month. The result was an uplifting and moving film that captures the incredibly professional, down-to-earth and family orientated culture of Macdow.

McConnell Dowell recently commissioned 37 South Films to develop our 50-year birthday DVD. 

 We were delighted with the end product and would certainly consider engaging them again. Their professional and creative ability helped us to tell an inspiring 50-year story that we will proudly promote to our employees and customers.
