'Far from Freedom', ABC Multimedia doco on Iraqi Refugees in Jordan goes live!

Hi Guys!

This morning ABC News Online has launched ‘Far from Freedom’, a multimedia documentary on the situation of Iraqi Refugees in Jordan. It’s a project I shot in Jordan during August and September, and post-production has been a massive effort by a pretty small team here at ABC in Sydney since December… and now it’s alive! So, enjoy!

Thanks Ethan! In answer, no i didn’t do the voiceover – we had ABC’s Jeremy Fernandez do a really brilliant read for us…. horses for courses I say! Jeremy’s voice is really great for long form… so deep and round… And yeah maybe we could have paused a little more on some stills, but we were really working to try and roll smoothly between photo and video in this piece, you know work the threshold between the two… will think about your feedback for next time!

Good on ya’
It’s nice to see that there are s few journalists still working on projects about Iraq and Iraqis, even though it’s not the “big story” any longer.

Thanks, Bob! Yeah, Eros coverage of this has really dropped off the radar, it’s one of the reasons I went to take a look at it – very glad it’s getting a good run!
