BLUE CLAY is a video production and marketing agency operating in Canberra, Wagga Wagga, Albury, Sydney, Wollongong and wider regions. We are expert storytellers. We uncover unique stories and develop compelling content and strategies, fitting our clients’ marketing needs and budget.
ONE of the first questions we are asked is, ‘how did you come up with the name, Blue Clay Creatives?’ Well, we were inspired by a bit of Australian history.
In Belgium during World War One, the 1st Australian Tunnelling Company dug passageways in order to lay mines and aid the advance of British troops. To solve the problem of wet soil, the tunnels were made in the layer of "blue clay” which was 25-30 metres below the soggy upper-level soil. .
Hill 60 became a site of a number of desperate battles. It now contains a number of memorials and wartime ruins. They also made an Australian film based on the stories from the trenches, Beneath Hill 60. .
But beyond that, the name is perfect to reflect the work we do. Our corporate side is represented by the ‘blue’ and our creative side by the word 'clay' as you can mould anything from clay!
I have over eleven years journalism experience, working across the globe as a reporter and film producer for Channel Seven, BBC and ITN – but I moved on to a life far more thrilling….
Some people can’t understand my decision. Why leave a job with a major broadcaster and a career as an on-screen journalist? Why leave the glitz and glamour, the hair and makeup and gorgeous wardrobe selection? Why? Because I had more to offer…
Leaving the world of journalism was actually an easy decision. After two years working for the BBC and other agencies, I realised that the volatility and ego of a newsroom just wasn’t for me anymore… but telling stories? I could never give up that…
Unearthing, chasing and creating – that’s what I do best. Working in a newsroom means I know how to deal with ridiculous deadlines, ridiculous people (both in and out of the office!) and at the end of the day, mould something that was engaging and moved people.
Upon returning to Sydney in 2010, I started my dream, Blue Clay Productions. Over the past 4 years it has evolved. Our team has grown, our expertise has grown, as has our dream and geographical reach.
I opened the Riverina branch in March 2012 where we still operate and work with some of the country’s best agri-businesses. I've since moved Canberra where I have opened our second regional office.
Beyond creative storytelling, my passion also extends into sharing knowledge of health and how this can be instrumental in creating a healthy business. Hence, Mind Body Business was born in 2014. This 2-day event is one of the most challenging projects I have ever worked on. Want to know what you are made of? Create an event for 500 people from the ground up!
