form y Footprints Australia : National Indigenous Television Screen Australia , 2016 9613238 2016 single work film/TV

'It is 2014 and a group of young Aboriginal men from a tribe on the verge of losing their Songlines have just discovered that a law boss from a neighbouring tribe knows some of their cultural songs and dances. They have not been performed for more than 50 years and it was thought they had been lost forever. The songs and dances were given to the men’s tribe, the Djugun tribe, by their creator during the Buguragarri (the Dreaming).'

form y Naji Australia : National Indigenous Television Screen Australia , 2016 9613331 2016 single work film/TV

'Naji is a story from the Bugarregarre time, the Dreamtime. The spirit beings came out of the ocean and woke up the silent, barren land, as they moved from Dabberdabbergun in the West, to the land of the rising sun, creating life and importantly, water, as they travel. This creation story comes to life through the use of re-enactments as Richard Hunter, an elder of the Goolarabooloo people, recounts the steps of his First People. Or during the Buguragarri (the Dreaming).'
