In 2011, a core group of ten to fifteen young people, a FIFO miner from Perth and two young mothers from Roebourne, have come together under the mentorship of a professional filmmaker, choreographer and actor to make a short film exploring the energy of youth and how that energy can transform their communities. The idea was that zombies just needed a bit of love and fun and they would come to life again. It was set to the song ‘What the World Needs Now’ and the characters the kids created for themselves became known collectively as the Love Punks. The Love Punks have gone on to create an online game, a junk percussion music video clip and an interactive comic called NEOMAD.
