Production Notes


‘The Ghindaring’ is a story conceived by Graham Mansfield adapted into a film script by Hamish McDonald for Scandish Films.

The film was directed, shot and edited by Hamish McDonald and Scott McAdam, and colour graded by Scott McAdam.

All lighting and audio, both location and post production, were taken care of by Aurora Show FX and Paradyme Studios which are operated by Hamish McDonald under the Scandish Films banner.

Aurora Show FX include Jordan Terry, Ivan Jarvis, Braidy Chick, Sarah Ritchie and Abbey Sheather. This team provided on set duties such as boom operations, lighting duties and secondary camera operations and assistance.

All music in this film was written and recorded by Hamish McDonald at Paradyme Studios Taree.


The time, effort and dedication that all cast members put into this project was amazing and every single one of them was a joy to work with.

The film called for a large search party of extras. These people were called upon to perform their on-screen duties with very little coaching and blew everyone away on set with their enthusiasm and willingness to be part of the project.


All props, vehicles and locations used were sourced and taken care of by Graham Mansfield.

Everything in this film was supplied locally and all footage was shot on location in Mount George and Wingham in NSW.
