We need your help to continue the Ngayuku Papa (My Dog) animation series!
In 2017 and 2018, Tjanpi Desert Weavers artists from Warakurna in the remote Western Australian desert collaborated with animator Jonathan Daw to create two quirky and much-loved films. These films combine stop-motion animation with live-action storytelling to tell tales of remote desert community life, depicting the unique and often amusing personalities of community dogs and their friendships with Anangu.
This film is the second in the series and features Ngaanyatjarra woman Maureen Butler-Baker telling the story of her dogs Bluey and Big Boy.
The public response to these films has been overwhelming. Both adults and children have fallen in love with the films and keep asking for more.
We want to continue the series but we need to raise $8000 in order to progress the production of more films. While this amount will not cover the cost to make the films, it will get the project off the ground which is what we need right now.
If you would like to see more of these films, we urge you to donate now! Every little bit counts and all donations over $2 are tax deductible.
