A crew of  2011 AFTRS directing graduates; Julian Shaw (Directing), Peter Slee (Directing) and Steve McCallum (Directing) teamed up with fellow grads Damian Smith (Cinematography) and Michael Pontin (Producing & Screen Business) and created an ad campaign for GetUp! in support of gay marriage that has managed to register at the time of writing close to 5 million views on YouTube.

With cross posts by Madonna on her Facebook page and other celebs  sharing the clip like Rosie O'Donnel, Kathy Griffin and Stephen Fry the team have made a real mark !

Brilliant initiative and impact.
