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.
