Solo Films has been working extensively with Roy Hill Mining for the past year on their visual imagery. We have collaborated with them on their Core Values project and their Video Inductions. We were also invited to assist with making a video to promote and launch the Roy Hill Community Foundation. The Foundation was established by Roy Hill’s CEO, Barry Fitzgerald, and a dedicated team at Roy Hill. According to Mr Fitzgerald, the Roy Hill Community Foundation is a unique approach to delivering programs and initiatives which result in enduring benefits to local communities.
“This Foundation brings together the skills and resources of companies for the benefit of the community. The Foundation’s partners are driven by a belief that more effective outcomes are achieved through a collaborative and integrated approach. It is a vehicle for companies to join forces to address community issues deemed too hard to tackle on our own,” said Mr Fitzgerald.
So Far, Roy Hill’s project contractors and business partners have committed more than $10 million in cash to the Foundation. This, plus in kind support will target investment and and support strategies recommended by community stakeholders in four areas – Education, Training and Employment; Culture and the Arts; Business Development and Community Development.
The tight turnaround and a small database of appropriate visuals made this project quite a challenge. But the combined efforts of the Solo Films and Roy Hill teams meant that we were able to produce a well received product that drew positive comment from all present at the Roy Hill Community Foundation launch, including the The Hon. Bill Marmion, Minister Finance, Mines & Petroleum and Barry Fitzgerald, Roy Hill Chief Executive Officer.
