Event description


Introducing the Rock My World Film Making Workshop for Brisbane!

Our exclusive Filming Workshop, which has been a hit in NSW and Victoria, will be the first in Brisbane, QLD!

We have created two workshops -

Sunday 24 June

Sunday 22 July

The June workshop we will learn all there is to know about the short film industry, how to storyboard and make a short film using a simple device such as mobile phone or iPad.

At the end of the #1 Workshop in June, we will ask the teens to create their very own 5 minute short story in their home environment for our return in July.

At the July workshop, we get to edit the whole thing!

Film competition entries close end of July 2018 hence these workshops before entries close.

The theme/genre will be "@ love" . This theme was selected by Australian Hearing, which was announced on Tuesday 10 April 2018.

Awards will be decided by Australian Hearing, also the 2 selected winners across NSW, QLD or VIC will have their film showcased throughout the 150 Australian Hearing centres across the country and their social media pages!



Do I have to pay an entry fee on top of the Registration fee?

This is a two day Session, so $50 for both days (one in June and one in July). No extra costs.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

This is for current deaf/hard of hearing High School students (Year 7 to Year 12)
Age 12-18 years.

What is the mentor to participant ratio?

Depending on the number of participants we can have anywhere between 3 - 5 Mentors.

Can I use my current NDIS funding to cover Hear For You?

Yes this is possible. After registering for the NDIS ticket, please contact David Brady on to inform him whether you are:

1. NDIA Agency managed i.e. they pay all invoices on your behalf

2. Self-funded i.e. the NDIA have given you a lump sum to use as per your agreed NDIS plan

You will need to give us your NDIS number and the number of hours or funding amount that you have secured with your NDIA planner.

NDIS Hours - 6 hours for this event

Which Support Clusters do I use or apply for to cover Hear For You events?

There are two Support Clusters to use:

Support Cluster No.9 "Increased Social and Community Participation"

  • Support Item: Life transition planning including mentoring, peer support and individual skill development.
  • Support Item Ref No. 09_006_0106_6_3
  • Description: Establishing volunteer assistance within the participant’s home or community to develop skills. For instance, assistance in attending appointments, shopping, bill paying, taking part in social activities and maintaining contact with others.

If Support Cluster No.9 is unavailable, Support Cluster No.15 can be used:

Support Cluster No. 15 "Improved daily living skills"

  • Support Item: Assistance with decision making, daily planning, budgeting
  • Support Item Ref No. 15_035_0106_1_3
  • Description: Provision of time limited support to assist a person to develop and maintain daily budget, including assisting in planning purchases.

Not on NDIS OR still waiting?

If you are for any reason not on the NDIS (yet), no worries. You only need to pay $50 to enrol as this year the Rock My World Film Making program and Film Festival is supported by the Australian Hearing.

We are conscious of the fact many deaf and hard of hearing teenagers are yet to be accepted to their NDIS and need more time. Hence we are pleased to have this funded to make sure as many teenagers don't miss out due to waiting.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Parking at the university is FREE on weekends.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Please note that event details may be changed closer to the date and you will be notified of any and all changes as a ticket holder.
