Just quickly, I was talking about the Dust Echoes project to some one the other and couldn't find any links online anywhere... So I've uploaded them myself.
Dust Echoes was a great project back in 2006, bringing together a bunch of independent Australian animators to recreate some of the indigenous stories from the Beswick community. There were a bunch of great films that resulted from the project but these were the three I had a hand in.
