Introducing filmmaker Derek Rogers

Project: New Light Industrial

I was in newspapers for 20 years. I finished up a Grade Six with News Limited, and was editor of one of the company’s smaller mastheads (for seven years). In the last four years I’ve made several hundred little film documentaries, most of them in the Port Adelaide-Enfield and Hindmarsh areas. The BBC screened a short film of mine that dealt with the changing face of Port Adelaide.

To the New Light Industrial project I bring interview and film skills. I would like to ask all residents in all suburbs adjoining the Port what they would like to see happen in the area. And I would like to make a documentary about what the New Light Industrial team does with some of those ideas.
