PAW Media began making videos in the early 1980s. Starting out as Warlpiri Media Association and based in the remote community of Yuendumu in Central Australia, our work has become known internationally through the innovative Bush Mechanics. We continue to make videos for our local communities, for iCTV and national TV.
