Sydney Fox and Dingo Rescue crowdfunding campaign

Sydney Fox and Dingo Rescue currently provide day-to-day care for close to 100 animals at their south west Sydney shelter, some are permanent residents¸ others are waiting to be adopted or undergoing medical care. They are the only dedicated Fox Rescue centre in Australia and one of the only Dingo Rescues.

For 6 years Sydney Fox and Dingo Rescue have provided a safe haven to animals that had no-where else to turn. They have helped save the lives of over a 100 foxes, 80 dingoes, 180 cats, 50 rabbits and many other animals. They’ve helped hundreds of families find the perfect animal companion and hundreds of animals recover, heal and learn to love again.

Sydney Fox and Dingo Rescue also help educate people young and old about animals and the environment and provide a voice for animals who don’t have one of their own.

Now the shelter is under threat and needs to find a new, permanent home. MerJa Media helped out by providing a free videographer and editing for their crowdfunding video.

You can help these animals find a new home by donating to their chuffed campaign and by sharing it on social media.


Fréderike Geerdink – Rojava – the most feminist revolution in history

One afternoon in January 2015, the Dutch journalist Frederike Geerdink was working in her apartment in Diyarbakir, south-east Turkey, when she was disturbed by a knock at the door. It was eight fully armed anti-terrorist police.

As they began searching her home, filming everything with a camcorder, they told her she was suspected of disseminating “terrorist propaganda”. Her alleged crime, publishing “supportive” articles (i.e. factual articles) about the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party.

We were fortunate enough to be invited to film her talk on the revolution in Rojava (Northern Syria)

Himalayan Sisters: Reflexions sur un voyage

Two Australian teenagers journey to Nepal, visiting medieval cities and trekking amongst the tallest mountains in the world. Along the way they form new friendships and learn what it means to be born a female in Nepal.

This documentary is a little unusual in it’s pace and style and at 2 hours not everyone will have the patience to sit through it. Filmed in the cinéma vérité style of Louis Malle’s Phantom India (“L’Inde fantôme: Reflexions sur un voyage”) the documentary uses minimal narration and crew to take the viewer along for the journey without attempting to meet the modern television formula of quick action and constant stimulation, instead we are poetically led through the documentary as if experiencing Nepal from the eyes and minds of the two young women.

The idea is that rather than the film maker dictating to you we want the viewer to experience their own voyage and find a story that is relevant to them personally.
