Nyikina Collaborative Filmmaking

Abstract

In October 2016 I worked with Filmmaker Magali McDuffie on visualising the collaborative process that she has employed when working with the Nyikina Community of Western Australia. The figures were created in an online visual editing tool called Gliffy.

These were developed and formed part of a higher degree by research (HDR) presentation at the end of that year.
