ARDS welcomes YARN to the team
The ARDS women’s health educators are very excited to welcome YARN film makers Katrina Channells, Bridget O’Shea and Noni Eather to work with us on our exciting film project.
Some people might know about YARN, a Melbourne-based production company, from the beautiful series called Stingray Sisters, about Noni and her family, which was launched in 2016. Katrina (Gutjan) grew up with the Eather sisters and enjoyed spending lots of time at Maningrida to make that series. Noni is happy to be involved with these new important films that ARDS is making, because she works with young mums and knows how important it is for women to understand their bodies and how to stay strong and healthy.
During the last week of March, Bulkanhawuy and Emma took Katrina to Nhulunbuy to meet all the women who will be in our film. We drove around looking for places to film, and also spent lots of time with the film developing the story-line and characters and work-shopping scenes. Our test shoots were a success.
We will be back in late April for one or two big weeks of filming. We’re all very excited – the film will be fantastic.
