Making the dream real


For the past two years Cate and Hewey have been working extremely hard producing dirtgirlworld out on the farm. This production has been a wild ride which has involved bringing in teams of people to various locations for specific periods of time. From locals as close as 2 kms down the road to working daily with the Canadian co-production partners Decode Entertainment, the pair have had an interesting time adjusting to world clocks, production systems and timeframes.

Cate and Hewey were the beloved "Two Pot Screamers" for fifteen years travelling extensively across the North Coast and beyond to Japan. Their infectious personalities brought them a solid fan base and they were well loved and respected wherever they went. Building that business independently, living the musicians life of working till the wee small hours then getting up to a normal life were the exact skills they needed to be the producers of dirtgirlworld.

dirtgirlworld was a dream that has organically developed. The seed was planted by the two of them sitting on their verandah and it has been nurtured and developed over the last two years while always staying true to the original vision, by not being scared to take a new approach to creating and by being able to laugh at themselves.

dirtgirlworld has been presold to ABC in Australia, CBC in Canada and CBeebies in the UK. These 3 public broadcasters have been a major part of the process and have contributed to the realisation of this dream bringing their experience to the scripts, storyboards and edits.
