ABC film crew on Ulgundahi Island July 2010

What a massive week i’ve had.

A film crew from the ABC visited Yaegl land for five days, documenting some of our stories for an upcoming series called Bloodlines (air date TBC). The series looks at 3 generations of the one family, capturing the important stories contained in the bigger family.

This episode is the Randall Bloodline, focussing on my nan (Nanny Randall – Matriarch of Maclean [deceased 2005]), my beautiful mother (Lenore – recently ordained Deacon in the Grafton Diocese), and myself (Visual Artist – my work is inspired by the stories of my mum, my nan and my Yaegl land).

During the crew’s visit, my sister’s Susan & Catherine were interviewed alongside myself. In this interview we all spoke about our childhood memories, nan and dad’s strong influence on all of us, and of course our mother.

A highlight of the trip was visiting Ulgundahi island for a day. My husband Mase accompanied us on the day, which was quite special as it was our first time back there since our 2008 wedding.

I won’t mention everything that was filmed during the 5 days (I don’t want to give away too much), but I look forward to seeing how they manage to condense so many hours of footage into one 25 minute episode.
