Office of the Children's Guardian: seeking children with disabilities for short film project, Sydney

Arts Access Australia posted this call for children with disabilities to appear in some training films, on Facebook yesterday:

We have been approached by Office of the Children's Guardian about wanting to hire some kids with disability to act in a short film production they are working on as part of a project. This is a PAID JOB and they need our help are on quite a tight time-frame so would appreciate you sharing this info far and wide if possible ...
The project involves the development of training to build capacity for disability providers on how to become a Child Safe Organisation. The training will be delivered across NSW in mid 2017. 
To support the face to face training they are developing 4 short films of situations within the workplace which represent areas of risk. 
Some of the actors required for the training videos will need to be children with disability and at this stage it is likely that a child around 6 years old and another child from 10-14 years old will be needed. All scenarios will be set within an inclusive school environment and if possible it would be great if they could have another 2-3 children as extras. 
They are hoping to film in the week beginning 27 March at La Perouse Public School for around 6 days, and may only need the children for 1-2 of those days. 
Caryn Millward is the Project Officer and can be contacted on 02 9286 7264 if you would like to discuss the details further.
