What is Makers Who Inspire?
Makers Who Inspire is an original documentary web series by South Australian filmmaker Henry Thong. Through intimate interviews with inspiring creators, it explores art, inspiration and the creative process, and provides a rare glimpse into the studios, sets and workplaces of the most inspiring artists working today.
In Season 4, Henry focuses exclusively on creators of Asian and migrant heritage to examine their experiences in the creative industries. As a Malaysian-Australian filmmaker, this has been a deeply personal project for Henry and has allowed him to re-connect with his cultural heritage through working with his subjects. Season 4 was assisted by the South Australian government through Carclew.
