    Very succinct and clear summary of what the project is about. This summary captures the value of project’s originality and significance for those independent film producers who before CuriousWorks were not able to develop their projects. I agree that a broad audience of Australian society will be likely empowered with knowledge about unknown activities in often forgotten places (Western Sydney). I’m not quite sure who is the intended audience though… I personally consider that the intended audience is rather individuals outside marginal groups… individuals mainly young people who have little or no knowledge about what happens in Western Sydney and other remote areas of Sydney. This analysis has a good exploration of small elements like for example, the hyperlink to open Google Maps with the relevant filming location of the documentary and the reason why it was designed. This analysis reflects a good sense of why the use of certain elements on the page, which also shows that it has a good perception of the outcomes potentially achieved in a short and long term basis.
