Drive and Lucky Projects


 The Drive project involved workshops with young men to develop a series of short films acting as a pre-curser to a major film. The project is shaped by the relationship between young men, motor vehicles and risky practices such as early experiences with alcohol consumption, speeding, experimenting with cars and identify formation associated with ‘rights of passage’ from childhood to manhood.

The film was made by and about young men coming of age on the North West Coast of Tasmania and explores two major rites of passage – obtaining a drivers license and the legal right to consume alcohol. As with other elements of the Lucky Project, young people worked with arts mentors to lead the film making process, taking on roles as film makers, sound recordists, interviewers and interviewees, and as media production workers.
