INDIGENOUS VIDEO PRODUCTION
Culturally respectful Indigenous video production. Moonshine Agency specializes in working in close collaboration with communities to create videos in first languages. And incorporating local cultural metaphors as approriate.
Moonshine Agency is proud to specialize in Indigenous video production services. So we have worked closely with numerous communities across the top end and in Victoria. The purpose is to create stories that move Australia forward. We believe reconciliation must be the top priority for modern Australia. And we want to help shape a better future.

Culturally respectful communication. This is a key aspect of sharing knowledge and reconciliation.
Moonshine Agency has had the pleasure of collaborating with numerous first Australian communities in the Northern Territory and Victoria.
These projects rely on a basis of trust, honesty and authenticity. We are thankful to be guided by gifted cultural liaisons and linguists. We’re appreciative of the guidelines provided by Screen Australia. This provides guidance to pathways and protocols in storytelling with Indigenous communities.
A spirit of recognition and reconciliation informs our work in this area.
We are committed to helping close the gap on Indigenous disadvantage.
Be it collaborating with Indigenous thought-leaders and artists. Or advocating for health equity or celebrating achievements in Indigenous education. Moonshine Agency is committed to helping close the gap on Indigenous disadvantage within a generation.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Storytelling is Important.
Community-led efforts across the country designed to improve opportunities, health and educational outcomes of Indigenous Australians never fail to inspire us.
We are passionate about Indigenous video production. And the opportunities afforded by storytelling in first languages with local metaphors.
We hope to continue our fruitful collaborations with communities in this area.
Creating a culture of change.
Moonshine Agency is more than a supplier of Indigenous video production services. Consequently, the company sees itself as an agent of change. And it facilitates this change by activating audiences.
Moonshine Agency spearheaded an initiative to build a commanding Facebook presence on the Take Heart Project in 2018. We then worked with a variety of partners, including ANTaR, to activate that audience in 2019.
Over 35 events around the country were staged around National Close the Gap Day in 2019.
We are proud to host a flagship event at Melbourne’s Federation Square on National Close the Gap Day to inspire governments. Our goal was to facilitate the launch of a comprehensive Rheumatic Heart Disease (RHD) prevention program. And as a result, to stop 2 young people dying from preventable RHD each week.
These efforts were largely successful. Resulting in a coalition government commitment of $35 million towards an RHD vaccine. Similarly, $33 million was pledged by the Labor Government to prevent RHD on the ground.
At Moonshine Agency, we strongly believe in health equity. Until the 10-year life expectancy gap between first and other Australians is closed, our work will continue.
Embracing First Languages
