I Dream of Gina is a fantastical feature film which follows the adventures of Liz, a young filmmaker attempting to meet and interview Australia’s richest person, Gina Rinehart.
Combining traditional observational documentary technique overlaid with animation, constructed reenactments and dance and song sequences, I Dream of Gina is an adventure that re-imagines Gina Rinehart’s place in our collective consciousness.

Some Of My Previous Work

Elizabeth is a filmmaker, educator, and adventurer. She is passionate about the use of stories for the exploration and creation of a conscious planetary culture. She is drawn to interactive, collaborative and embodied forms of educating and creating that inspire connection and play.

Elizabeth has produced three short films that speak to her passion for stories that celebrate the strength and resilience of the human spirit.

Liz was a graduate from the AFTRS in 2012. In 2013, she was a teaching assistant with the Pan Pacific digital media training project in Tahiti, completed an intensive development program for interactive multiplatform stories at Metro Screen, and worked with the Antenna Documentary Film Festival.

How The Funds Will Be Used

Office expenses, pre-production and financing, storage, rentals, permits, insurance, transport, living, catering, art department and special effects.

Our team will continue to volunteer their time, but the principal crew will need to be paid. We'll need a DOP and sound recordist for our shoots, and later we will need to pay our editor, sound designer and composer.

All the not so fun stuff we need to get on the road like: accounting fees, legals (we’re gunna need ‘em), production levies, a marketing plan, completion guarantor, distribution and multiplatform strategy.

$25,000 will be a big help, and we'd be mighty grateful. If we go over our target, then we'll really be able to kick it up a notch

The Challenges

The biggest challenge will be securing an interview with Mrs Rinehart.
The plan is to keep persevering and not give up on the dream!
