The production team behind Shaping Young Australians
Aussie Stories, division of Katrina Lawrence Pty Ltd, grew from humble beginnings in the regional city of Geelong, Victoria.
An initial mini film where veteran Ernest Brough shared an inspirational and courageous war story was captured and produced through collaboration between film-maker Katrina Lawrence, the Geelong RSL, radio announcer and journalist Warwick Hadfield and Belmont High students.
Ernest and his story quickly captured the hearts and imaginations of all who saw his film “A Digger’s Great Escape – the German Soldier”. This response has inspired Aussie Stories to continue to seek and capture other remarkable Australians explaining moments in their lives that defined them and our way of life.
