My place( Visual )

My place is a rich source of entertainment and education. It is one of the ultimate pieces of episodic literature and now it is on television, involving more than a century of time, lots of kids, and a tree to provide continuity. My place series 1 adapts the book, written by Nadia Wheatley and Donna Rawlins, into 13 episodes about 13 children who live in the same house over 130 years (2008-1888). Their special place is the fig tree that represents a place of belonging. In episode 1 (2008), we meet Laura, an Indigenous girl, who through inadvertent misadventure needs to apologise to Michaelis, the landlord. Her reluctance to make this apology is paralleled by the apology made by Kevin Rudd to the Indigenous people of Australia. The series mirrors the stories of the book but also introduces two new characters; 1988 - Lily, a Vietnamese girl whose parents were boat people and 1998 - Mohammed, an Islamic boy who is celebrating Ramadan while trying out for the local cricket team. My place features an extensive cast of acclaimed Australian actors, including Susie Porter, Dan Wiley and Australian screen legend Chris Haywood. The series also features 13 lead roles, and numerous supporting roles, by some of Australia's best young talent
The stubbies collection( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Australian Children's Television Foundation has taken some of its most entertaining, engaging and creative short form content and packaged it all together for use in the classroom. The Stubbies collection supports teachers to encourage students to be creative and develop higher order thinking skills. Students are increasingly becoming the creators of short form content, with many involved in uploading videos, images, music and posts, and other types of media into spaces designed for social networking. For this reason it's important to provide students with high quality, locally made, short digital content in the classroom to offer opportunities for critiquing, deconstructing, reconstructing media and to inspire students to generate ideas, and possibilities not yet realised! Stubbies (Volume 1) features 24 short films from the following programs: My strange pet (live action, 6 x 45 sec): Nine year old Henry has a strange pet - a giant Quonkka called Basil, who is more a woolly monster than domesticated pet. In the short mockumentary's style episodes the mayhem increases as Henry learns that he has a very strange pet indeed. Horace in slow motion (animation, 6 x 45 sec): Horace is a lovable, portly pig who performs his greatest bodily acts in slow motion. Gyrate with Horace as he does the belly dance! Laugh out loud as he attempts to eat cake on a treadmill! Dry reach as he pops a zit! Dukes of Broxstonia (animation, 6 x 45 sec): The Dukes are the hottest band to come out of Broxstonia in years. Thanks to the generosity of the Broxstonian government, they're on tour, spreading their uniquely punk thrash sounds to the world. Casa de evil (live action/animation, 6 x 45 sec): recharge your batteries at Casa de evil. The secret island resort especially for super villains!
