In 2017 I received the Creative in Residence position at the Northern Territory Archives Service in Darwin, Australia. What a fabulous opportunity to explore the intersection of NT history, original archives, animation and filmmaking.
I spent my residency researching Darwin’s infamous Fannie Bay Gaol and the real-life characters who were incarcerated there.
The final films and images from the exhibition are presented below.
For more details about my research and creative process please also see my blog at https://hunib.com/blog/
These films were all made using archival photographs. Below are some examples of how I transformed the originals to create the graphics for my animations.
The exhibition was held in the Northern Territory Archive Service where I was able to display some of the original archival photographs and documents that informed and inspired the final films.

I gave a public talk at the launch of the exhibition which explained a bit about my experience of learning more about NT history and also explains a bit about my creative process. Here is a recorded version of that talk.
