After the first visit was cut short a few weeks back, NG Media has returned to Kiwirrkurra to complete the film project with the High School students.
It was great fun working with students all keen to have a go at the camera, sound equipment and clapper board, and after three days of solid work, all the footage is now, as they say, "in the can".
With only the post-production still to be done, everyone is looking forward to seeing the completed film. Well done everyone!
NG Media has received funding from the Indigenous Advancement Strategy of the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet to conduct a training project in the local Ngaanyatjarra schools. The project aims to deliver training in both radio and film and has a number of outcomes - keeping kids engaged with school activities and wanting to come, giving them opportuniites to have a go at producing media that tells their stories and hopefully uncovering and nurturing the next generation of radio announcers and film producers - some of whom could work for NG Media in the future.
