From the Nominator
Marking the 50th anniversary of the University of Melbourne Medical School building, “It started in the Sunderland” is a documentary celebrating the people who have worked and studied within its walls over the last half century. Screened at the inaugural Reunion Weekend for the Melbourne Medical School in late 2018, the film served to reconnect alumni with this important building—a place of great memories, friendships, and learnings in the formative years of young adulthood.
From the Judges
Compelling and incredibly engaging, the video is well shot and edited with a great pace and some wonderful cinematography. The lightness of touch and humour help to propel the action, and there are some clever links between the individual stories. Music is used effectively to enhance the drama and “characters” featured.
