We worked with advertising agency Grey to tap into the authenticity and candid nature of kids, regardless of the topic. Aimed at a regional audience, we wanted it to feel local, so we cast real kids from Ballarat. We chatted to hundreds of them one Saturday in August – matching the energy levels of 5-10 year olds from sunrise to sunset was an achievement in itself.
