New trailer for our film 'Milly'

We're thrilled to share the trailer for our film 'Milly', a narrative project we produced this year with ARDS Aboriginal Corporation. The film is to be used as a health education tool for young Indigenous women. The project saw us shooting on location in Nhulunbuy, Biritjimi and Yirrkala in North East Arnhem Land with a wonderful local Yolngu cast. A comprehensive study guide was produced to accompany the film and we're pleased to hear that 'Milly' is being so well received by the young women and also by the health educators.

Thank you again to our clients at ARDS: Executive Producers Joy Bulkanhawuy and Emma Murphy; our fabulous lead cast of Zowie, Rachel, Roberta and Caitlin; and our fantastic crew: Cinematographer Sky Davies, Co-Producer Noni Eather, Sound Editor Tfer Newsome, Colourist Martin Greer and Animator Steph Comfort.

'Milly' was produced, written, directed and edited by Yarn.

Video campaign - The Bridge Employment

We're very pleased to share our latest video campaign for The Bridge Employment, an organisation in Melbourne that assists young people with disabilities to prepare for work and find employment. For this campaign we worked with three young people - Lucy, Campbell and Vanitta - who very graciously shared their personal experiences of preparing for work and gaining employment. We produced one video story on each participant as well as a campaign trailer.

A big thank you to the team at The Bridge, particularly CEO Phillip Toovey, GM Ausra Wells and staff members Cindy Warren, Martina Netto and Fili Polataivao.

Scroll down to view the campaign trailer and the three video stories.

Coastal Climate Adaptation Project - Bellarine Peninsula

Filming is underway on our latest project with the City of Greater Geelong. We are documenting the construction of a very innovative project - an Artificial Reef off the coast of Portarlington, Victoria. Designed to mitigate tidal events, the approximately 100 metre long Artificial Reef will be constructed from steel cages filled with organic matter: scallop shells recycled from local restaurants. Work has commenced on the steel cages and several tonnes of scallop shells are being turned intermittently in a sunny paddock in St Leonards, waiting to be packed into the cages. It's anticipated that the reef will be 'greened' in order to offer a complementary benefit to the local ecosystem and encourage sea life to infiltrate the structures.

The deployment of the reef will take about two days and will occur later in 2017. We are looking forward to capturing underwater images and aerials of this very exciting event.

Behind the scenes of our film 'Milly'

We've just returned from 10 amazing days in North East Arnhem Land shooting our film 'Milly'. The brief was to create two films to be used as resources in women's health education, primarily for the Yolngu women living in North East Arnhem Land. We're producing these films in partnership with ARDS Aboriginal Corporation and have been working closely with our lovely clients Bulkanhawuy and Emma Murphy for the last few months. Most of the time at Yarn we work in documentary so it's been a real thrill to work on a narrative client project and such a privilege and pleasure to help Bulkanhawuy realise her concept for this beautiful story. We're rapt to be working with Noni Eather as Co-Producer and Director of Photography Sky Davies, along with our fabulous cast of Yolngu women who delivered incredible performances over long days and absolutely mad end-of-wet-season-weather. A big thank you to everyone on the team - we're looking forward to getting into the edit! In the meantime, see below for some pics from the shoot.
