Made this back in 2006 as part of a project in the Latrobe Valley as part of the Commonwealth Games cultural festival, working with the students of Yallourn North Primary School to animate the stories of some of the towns former residents. Making this film sparked my interest in the ill-fated township and the people who lived there. An interest that has led to the graphic novel about the town that I am currently in the thick of(hopefully to be completed and out there by mid-next year). If you want to know more about the town and its history then the virtual yallourn web site ( is a good spot to start.
