Today’s Two Words: Blast Off!
Thanks to everyone who’s watched my film Gugu naGogo and shared their lovely messages of support. I’m so pleased you’re enjoying it! Here are a few fun bloopers for you:
It was also pretty magical celebrating our film launch at Melbourne Planetarium. Gugu naGogo played on the large dome, surrounded by twinkly stars in a dark night sky. It was wonderful hearing people’s different reactions as it played and I was so emotional afterwards.
After our speeches, as a special treat, we were transported across the universe in a night sky tour. We saw stars and planets, galaxies and constellations – our collective oohs and aahs were glorious!
Special thanks to astronomer Dr Tanya Hill, Kate Barnard, Sophie Oakes and Catriona Nguyen-Robertson from Scienceworks for making our first screening so special.
Our community is over the moon!
