Cybersafety Short Films

Students from Castlemaine Secondary College worked with creative agency Storyland in a special five-week workshop, exploring their relationships with social media and their online presence, and producing their own media to communicate how to be safe and happy in a cyber-saturated world.

The short films were exhibited as part of Castlemaine Fringe Festival 2019.
