Phillip Island & District Historical Society

Grant to produce an updated history DVD

Last updated on 28-Jan-16

The society recently heard that we have been successful in our application for a $1600 Bass Coast Shire Council community grant to update our History of Phillip Island DVD. The existing DVD was made in 1983 as a video, and a lot has happened on Phillip Island since then! A subcommittee of Christine Grayden, Anne Davie, John Jansson and Bruce Procter will work on choosing the images and writing the script for the new history. Computer whizz, audio engineer and trained radio announcer Simon Eddy (who produced this website) will compile and edit the images and footage, add music and sound effects, and do the voice over reading the script. This is a very exciting project and we hope to have it all ready by the time of the Museums Australia Victoria conference on Phillip Island in early October 2016.
