Broken down into story, character design, set design, color scripts, lighting and collages, there's plenty of material to flip through for anyone interested in the art of animation. It is fun to watch the footage, but when a character, from the film, makes an appearance at the end of the short, it sort of gives away the real origin of this footage. present and extend our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from all nations of this land.
