Media Mob documents and promotes the events and stories of the Barkly Region and the broader Northern Territory.

The Media Mob team is available for projects across: film, photography, sound recording, audio editing, social media, web design, vision mixing, live web streaming and lighting.

Media Mob originally started as a workshop initiative in 2013 to train local Tennant Creek and Barkly region teenagers and young adults in filmmaking, photography and media skills. A main aim was to help promote more locally made content within Barkly Regional Arts.

The original initiative was a success, leading to the newly created Media Mob to work with many other projects under Barkly Regional Arts’ key areas, such as the Desert Harmony Festival, which could now employ newly trained local filmmakers as a camera team to document the festival and spread the message to not only families in remote communities, but also to wider Australia.

As the team grew in skill level, the working Media Mob team branched out into new and creative independent projects. This has led to creating several award winning videos, such as their ABC Heywire postcards, which told short, intimate stories about different people and groups in the Barkly region. One of the more notable early Media Mob videos include Lindy Brodie’s Artist Profile, a 15-minute documentary promoting her work.

Media Mob’s diverse contribution

Media Mob has since dropped its workshop status, but is now an official branch of Barkly Regional Arts. Media Mob currently works in promoting and documenting the many different projects that our other departments are involved with and brings life, colour and dynamism to each and every one of them. This documentation is used to promote Barkly Regional Arts on a wider platform. For example, an ongoing role of Media Mob is to photograph art works in the Visual Arts Department produced by artists from across the Barkly region, professionalising each work for cataloguing, promotion and sale.

Media Mob has travelled to various Barkly communities to document a wide scope of projects, such as working with the Visual Arts ‘Artist Of The Barkly’ program, which created an award winning web series titled ‘My Art, My Culture’. This outstanding series promotes local Tennant Creek artists with video stories, presenting their art, culture and language.
