This movie was made by students at Kalkaringi School. The movie was inspired by the Emu Dreaming story. The students went on an excursion to Seven Mile Creek, where an elder from the community told them the story. He also talked about how the story was told to him when he was young; sitting in the bush, around a fire late at night, with his elders who were stockmen at Wavehill Station. The students recorded this story with sound and video. Back at the school they translated the story into artworks, animations, videos and voice recordings.

SharingStories Digital Storytelling program is one of the major programs run as part of the SharingStories Foundation. It works with young people in remote indigenous communities, transferring digital media skills in order to support a creative digital storytelling practice. This process enables children to develop a creative voice with which they can explore, tell and share their own stories as well as participate in the creation of cultural recordings with their own elders. The program not only builds confidence in new technologies, it strengthens identity and builds community capacity through workshops that engage young participants with Elders, Country and Culture.
