Ramon Williams has agreed to be interviewed by the Australian Television and Media Group in an autobiographical documentary about his work.
Ramon’s is a unique Australian story which covers just about every major event in our modern history. Many have spoken about producing a film on Ramon and submitting his photos into the National Archives.
We are looking for the support of individuals and organisations who know Ramon, admire his photography and have benefitted from his work.
We would like to produce an autobiographical documentary which showcases Ramon’s work and which gives Ramon a platform to tell the stories behind his photos.
Ramon has photographed unique and iconic events in Australia’s modern history including:
Ramon’s photos have been published by organisations including WEC, Red Cross, Salvation Army, Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Barnardos, Ambassadors for Christ, Haggai Institute, National Geographic, Mission Australia, World Vision and many others.
The Australian Television and Media Group are committed to completing this project. If for any reason we don’t raise the full budget, we will continue with our schedule (see below) though scale back the production as necessary.
We are looking to raise $1000 per finished program minute. (Average budget for ‘Australian Story’ is between $1500-2500 per finished program minute). If we exceed our budget, we will be looking to produce a longer documentary.
Budget breakdown as follows:
• Pre-production and Planning: $ 3 500
• Crew (research, camera, sound, producer, editor): $15 000
• Equipment and Facilities: $6 000
• Legals and Permissions: $1 000
• Marketing / Promotion: $3 500
• TOTAL: $29 000
We are on schedule to film this documentary in September 2018, with a release date in late 2018 (budget permitting).
