Join us at Sydney StoryCode’s September event ‘Impact Storytelling for Good’ to learn about the possibilities that open up when innovative storytelling is used to further social and environmental causes. Enjoy a show and tell of successful projects where digital creatives have worked on social causes to tell stories with real impact, including case studies from the producers of Frackman and Gayby Baby.
Speakers: Simon Nasht (Frackman), Hattie Archibald (Gayby Baby) + more to be announced
A former political reporter and foreign correspondent, Simon Nasht has established himself as one of Australia’s most experienced documentary filmmakers over the past 20 years, winning major international awards and producing for the world’s leading networks. He has run successful production companies in London and New York, and formed a partnership with entrepreneur Dick Smith in 2011 to produce thought-provoking films for the Australian and international market. The company is now branching into digital content and educational platforms. Simon is a visiting fellow at the Institute of Sustainable Futures, UTS and a former teacher at the European Film College in Denmark.

Hattie has been at the helm of the independent release of four Australian feature films: The Connection (2014), Last Paradise (2013), Rites of Passage (2013) and Between the Devil & the Deep Blue Sea (2011), delivering films to audiences via event screening tours, VOD, DVD, self-hosted community screenings and educational packages. She has a flare for finding and mobilising audiences.
As a crowdfunding consultant, Hattie has co-developed the strategy for several successful crowdfunding campaigns (including Gayby Baby and Deep Blue Sea), collectively raising over $650,000 across 12 campaigns. Hattie also works as a director, post-production producer and production assistant.
