Seek­ing Female Fire­fight­ers to share insight for TV Show research

Film­mak­ers Kath­leen Sim­monds and Jes­si­ca Damouni are in the ear­ly stages of devel­op­ment for a nar­ra­tive tele­vi­sion series cen­tred around the expe­ri­ences of the vol­un­teers in the RFS. Their aim is to pay trib­ute to the vol­un­teers (in par­tic­u­lar, women and indige­nous vol­un­teers) who were on the front­lines of the Black Sum­mer Fires and high­light the sense of com­mu­ni­ty and cama­raderie at the core of the RFS

In order to ensure the accu­ra­cy of the series, they are inter­est­ed in con­nect­ing with fire­fight­ers for con­fi­den­tial, infor­mal chats as a way to fur­ther under­stand the moti­va­tions and expe­ri­ences of dif­fer­ent vol­un­teers and their loved ones. 

All com­mu­ni­ca­tions will be com­plete­ly con­fi­den­tial and will not be filmed. This is for research pur­pos­es only. To find out more about the film­mak­ers, please head to www​.kath​leen​sim​monds​.com/​i​n​t​o​t​h​e​black

Please email kathleensimmo@​gmail.​com if you are inter­est­ed in shar­ing your insights and experience.
