Nina Oyama and Angus Thompson
Bachelor of Theatre Media and Bachelor of Communications (Public Relations)
Nina and Angus met while studying at Charles Sturt University in Bathurst, and it was here that they started working on what would become, as Nina explained, a surprise hit TV show, The Angus Project.
“If someone had told us when we first started hanging out that we would make a TV show for the ABC we’d be like ‘nah!’ The fact that it has happened has been a really proud moment for us.”
And Angus sees shifting people’s view of disability as part of the show’s drive.
“I want to try and change the world in any way I can and try to change society’s perception of people living with cerebral palsy. Not many people have an idea of what people with cerebral palsy can accomplish. We all need to put this [their capabilities] out in the mainstream. It’s a physical disability – we’re not just wheelchair bound and at home all day. We can accomplish our dreams.”
