Worr’wurr ga Nyiknyik

“Worr’wurr ga Nyiknyik”, an animation by Nyalung Wunungmurra.

Written, illustrated, narrated and directed by Nyalung Wunungmurra

Animated by Kirrily Schell (inkwinks)

Produced as a part of the Mulka Project and Community Prophets Media Training initiative.

The animation was created as a part of my work in Yirrkala doing animation training at Buku-Larrggnay, the Mulka Room (though we actually made this in the Print Studio at Buku-Larrggnay).
