Sixteen interviews have been recorded and videotaped with graduating students from eight partner institutions for the Heath Ledger Young Artists Oral History Project. Inspired by Heath Ledger, whose untimely death left us with little of his oral history, the project records the thoughts and aspirations of audiovisual artists at the start of their careers.
Associated interviews were also filmed with actors Samara Weaving, Eamon Farren, opera singer Karen Fitz-Gibbon and Heath Ledger Scholarship Winners Ryan Corr (2011 winner) and Anna McGahan (2012).
A selection of clips from these interviews can be viewed on the NFSA Youtube channel and in the playlist below. Completed interviews demonstrate the graduating students’ articulate and thoughtful perspective on their chosen professions.
