I made this video postcard of the Celebration of Cultures and Colours Festival in Barcaldine as an experiment in September 2012. At that stage, the Video postcards project was only the shell of an idea.
Paul Bray, ABC Open Producer from the Pilbara and I, had been talking about how to make video more accessible for beginners.
There are a number of things, in hindsight, I would no do differently. I would make sure I included background noise as I think it's a shame you can't hear the crowd, dancing and drums. I might also add some background music!
Since the project has become live it's clear there are different types of postcards - places, events, experience and everyday rituals. I think this is an event and experience postcard!
