About the series

Magnify Melbourne is an award-winning documentary web series about the fabric of the city: the people who live in (or otherwise connect with) it. Through a number of biographical short docs, the series aims to document the lives of Melbournians, and to discover the extraordinary in the ordinary. We believe that everybody has an interesting story to tell, and we set out to find it — in the supposedly “most liveable city in the world”.

The series is made by Media and Communication students at La Trobe University. It is executive produced by Steinar Ellingsen, and supervised by Hugh Martin and Mandy Crane.
