“The world needs dreamers and the world needs doers. But above all what the world needs most are dreamers that do".

Sarah Ban Breathnach WRITER

Independent filmmaking

Like many people around the world who freelance, Loretta’s contract was cancelled on the TV show she was working on.  With no idea how long the lockdown would last or when she would work again she decided… 

It was time to innovate and collaborate.

She never imagined, two of the artists would become finalists in The Archibald and Wynne prizes, held by Art Gallery NSW, let alone, over 20 people from around the world would respond and say yes to recording themselves for four months and collaborate in the filmmaking process.
Watcha Doin’ Today was as an outlet for creatives to be part of something bigger than their isolation allowed.  Artist submitted video via dropbox and where remotely directed and trained along the way. Due to social distancing restrictions, Loretta had never met many of them of participants before they started filming back in March 2020. These short films are very much a collaboration of the filmmaking process with each artist and the director Loretta.
