City East Alliance – building Perth’s infrastructure

Geo Media Interactive is continuing its relationship with Main Roads, Leighton Contractors and the City East Alliance filming the Great Eastern Highway upgrade.  This major artery into Perth is undergoing a complete re-build and GMi is there to film it happen.

 

 

 

 

The vision has already been aired in news stories on the Perth networks and will be part of the Alliance’s bid for engineering, community and environmental awards as well as a corporate video.  We are also providing the Alliance with hi-resolution stills of the entire project.  Taken with the superb Canon SLR camera and using our extensive range of lenses, these stills are used on the CEA website – www.cityeastalliance.com.au – also designed by GMi, on banners and posters for the project and in newspaper articles.

Breakfast in the desert

GMi has recently returned from another trip to the Little Sandy Desert.

A lot of people ask us how rough the conditions are out there and we can now reveal that whilst on station we live in the lap of luxury!  The Homestead is a small oasis of green, 200km from the sealed roads and 100km from its nearest neighbor.  In summer we sleep under the stars and in winter we all cram into the homestead for warmth.  Temperatures in summer top 46 degrees but in winter we are scraping ice from the cars.

 

 

Food is a vital part any trip and we all re-live our college days with a mix of tinned things on toast, BBQs and camp fire cook-ups.  The trip is harder on the vehicles – so far we have speared 2 tyres and got 1 puncture – keeping in touch by sat phone is vital.

We are looking forward to our next adventure – stay tuned for more stories from the outback!
