Jack and Jones 2012 dir. Jason Japaljarri Woods & Jonathan Daw (4 mins)

"Two Warlpiri boys grow up together in a small remote indigenous community. They find strength in family and culture when troubles turn up on a trip into town." PAW Media and Communications

Ngayuku Papa (My Dog): Bluey and Big Boy 2017 dir. Jonathan Daw (2:15 mins)

"In 2017 and 2018, Tjanpi Desert Weavers artists from Warakurna in the remote Western Australian desert collaborated with animator Jonathan Daw to create two quirky and much-loved films. These films combine stop-motion animation with live-action storytelling to tell tales of remote desert community life, depicting the unique and often amusing personalities of community dogs and their friendships with Anangu.

This film is the second in the series and features Ngaanyatjarra woman Maureen Butler-Baker telling the story of her dogs Bluey and Big Boy."  Tjanpi Desert Weavers

Bush Mechanics 2013 dir. Jason Japaljarri Woods (11 mins)
