Warwick Thornton considers that Australian filmmakers have gained a better understanding of Indigenous identity as a result of the evolving Indigenous screen practice. Thornton’s work is driven by ideas: he must have a reason for making a film before he can begin working on a script. He comes from a cinematography background and prefers to keep the visual details of a film in his head rather than writing them into the script. Stressing the importance of Indigenous filmmakers being open to change and willing to experiment with new ways of doing things, Thornton emphasises the connection between a strong Indigenous creative community and a dynamic Indigenous culture.
