Under the Sun
6 x 5 MINUTES | 2014
‘The Real Stories Project’ was launched as an employee competition within Australia Post to share stories that raise a positive message of inclusion within the workplace. The winning stories were produced into the short film ‘Work Mate’ and the six-part comedy web series ‘Under the Sun’.
To further showcase Australia Post’s genuine passion for inclusion, 14 film students with an intellectual disability were mentored on set during production in Sydney.
