            In The Thicket is a creative production company based in Sydney. inthethicket.com.au Our very own Leigh Richards was hand-chosen to be one of 8 directors to create a short vignette on one of the Australian of the Year nominees for 2012. The project involved Leigh and his cinematographer making their way to Tasmania to capture nominee Andrew Hughes' remarkable connection to the natural world, and the enthusiasm with which he shares his knowledge with young adventures. The biggest challenge of the project was filming outside of the school term (when Andrew did most of his work), which helped shape the decision to create a less typically instructive, more lyrical approach to the film.
