“We made a suite of videos about Autism. One story had seven different language versions. Working with italk Studios was so easy. They really guided us through the process, and helped us understand exactly what messages we wanted to communicate. Most importantly, the videos have real impact.”
Lee Casuscelli (National Manager), Positive Partnerships - Autism Spectrum Australia
“Amity and italk Studios have collaborated to produce a diverse range of videos and stories over many years. Amity use them as gambling education resources – and notice they’ve had a remarkable life of their own as organisations and individuals tell us they watch them to assist in understanding and working with issues surrounding gambling”
Nicola Coalter (Deputy Executive Officer), Amity Community Services Inc.
“It was italk Studios brilliant idea to produce a resource that uses humour and song as a way to communicate crocodile safety awareness messages. The Kriol version of the song went viral. And they produced the spoken messages in five Aboriginal languages. So the Be Crocwise safety messages had impact across our Top End remote communities and beyond.”
Mark Crummy (Director of Tourism and Visitor Engagement), The Parks and Wildlife Commission of the Northern Territory

italk Library User Feedback
Thank you for the amazing resources being created at italk Studios. This morning I played ‘Keeping Strong – Urban Story’ to a small group of Yirara students in a mental health presentation.
It was relatable and well received. While I was talking I mentioned ‘Worry Boss’, so the students were keen to view that, it was also well received at the end of the presentation, I highlighted for the students that these resources have been translated into other languages and this resources can be used to support others in their community.
“The italk concept is novel as it was the first to combine traditional storytelling with modern technology to create a unique two-way communication to transcend the barriers of language, culture and education.”
Ken Harkin (Executive Officer), Department of Business and Employment, NTG
“Love in the Time Of Dementia enables people to start talking about it…. everyone can relate with some one in the story… it may be new to some people, this story is a good starting point to talk about Dementia.”

“italk Studios encouraged Papunya youth to engage with educational stories. The youth played the stories so often they learned the words and chanted them along with the computer. The user friendly interface and it’s ability to produce spoken language gives a major advantage to training in the remote community context.”

italk Media Production Training Program
“I can show my grandson what I learned in here about computers and English and music and typing. I’m happy to share my story I made with people. I might get my grandson a computer and show him how to use it properly.”
“It’s been good. I learnt a bit about computers. It was good telling my story. I’m happy to share my story about when I was young playing football.”
“It’s been good, I really liked it. Doing italk and using computers, telling stories taking photos and talking about how you feel. It’s good to learn, then have a break and a cup of tea and then learn more with mister Pirate.”
“It makes me want to keep learning. I want to get more experience. I’ve learnt some but I want to learn more.”
