"It’s Like That" is made by the Southern Ladies Animation Group (S.L.A.G.) who are an animation collective based in Melbourne. It uses the voices of 3 refugee children held in mandatory detention. They were interviewed over the phone by ABC journalist Jacqueline Arias in 2002. “It’s Like That” is the S.L.A.G’s second film. It played at many international and local film festivals.
The Southern Ladies Animation Group (S.L.A.G) are: Louise Craddock, Susan Earl, Sally Gross, Emma Kelly, Nicole McKinnon, Elizabeth McLennan, Sharon Parker, Dell Stewart, Sophie Raymond, Yuki Wada, Justine Wallace and Diana Ward.
I did a small piece of 2D animation for the film. It was a collaboration by SLAG. I also helped as a producer upon completion of the film, with marketing and during its festival life.
