G O A N N A  L A G O O N 
A film crew came to town ... to make a music video for A Baru in New York by Gurrumul with Yolanda Be Cool ...  Frankie the director, Matt the producer and Geoff the DOP had their work cut out for them trying to get three kids to act in their video .. especially ours.. yup, thats right S A I L O R  has debuted in his first (and possibly last) film, the beginning and end to his acting career ! Alongside Gawiya and Liyawulumu he was filmed dancing swimming and playing in a variety of locations as two Yolngu kids opened the eyes of a inner city child to the magic of Arnhem Land (this being the premise for the clip)
The amount of bribery and coercion required to get him to behave was out of this world - I would have been screaming in frustration. No doubt the crew may have been on the inside but after four days they left with some footage and seemed happy enough. On sunday we took them all to Goanna Lagoon for some fresh water scenes and then to Oyster Beach where a huge storm rolled in. Big days and a big ask  but a big reward ( F A M E of course, oh and $150 each in payment! )
