Many years ago now (more than I’d like to contemplate) as part of my Master of Arts degree I undertook a work placement that required me to write a commissioned history for an organisation.
Even though I had not yet fully begun my screened history journey, I did still have an obvious interest in history, film and television (my other work placement was in the library at the Australian Film Institute – AFI).
It was suggested that I approach the professional networking group, Women in Film and Television Victoria, WIFT(Vic). Out of that suggestion I ended up researching and writing a history of their event Women in Motion.
I was also interested at the time in web design (the start of an ongoing interest) and instead of producing a written, printed history, I created an online history.
For a number of years that history was very kindly hosted on the AFI’s library website, but it is now part of the larger screened history project.
