On set | Head Start Homes

‘Charlene’ tells the inspiring story of an aboriginal single mother’s journey
from homelessness to achieving her dream of being a homeowner.

Check out behind the scenes on set for our recent project with Head Start Homes, supported by a cross-sector collaboration of Australian partnerships including Founding Partner Westpac and Pilot Project Partners St.George Bank with equipment provided by Panavision. The film is directed by André Rodrigues with DOPs Tom Black and Ewan Donnachie and produced by Michael Ahmadzadeh.

‘Charlene’ tells the inspiring story of an aboriginal single mother’s journey from homelessness to achieving her life-changing dream of being a homeowner.

Head Start Homes is a social services organisation with a truly honourable vision, it works to help single mums, First Nations people, and community housing families make homeownership a reality.

Charlene is the first to receive the support of this holistic and empowering initiative, allowing her the opportunity to move out of social housing and into her own home for the first time in her life.

The film opens with Charlene telling us her story against the background of the naturally beautiful landscape of Port Macquarie. The stunning visuals are juxtaposed with the intimate spaces of her soon to be new and permanent home: a charming property in Wauchope with an expansive backyard.

The gentle cinematography, sharp optics, and dreamy depth of field DOP Tom Black and 2nd Unit DOP Ewan Donnachie created using Panavision lenses contributes powerful visual elements to Charlene’s narrative and a sense of belonging.

This incredible invitation to capture Charlene’s touching step forward for her family and the scenic grandeur of the featured locations was truly an unforgettable experience for the electriclimefilms team.

electriclimefilms was honoured to have the chance to be part of this special moment and lend a voice to this beautiful testament of the lives and stories Head Start Homes helps to change and tell.
