The Screen Guide

Little J is five and has just started kindergarten year at school. He lives with his grandmother (Nanna), his girl cousin (Big Cuz) who is nine, and their dog (Old Dog) who is also the story narrator. LITTLE J & BIG CUZ follows the family's adventures and is told primarily from the point of view of Little J. Much of the story telling will be visual or carried by the narrator, making it easier to re-voice the show into multiple Indigenous languages. The intention is that community members will be engaged and funded to re-voice the series. The production will assist in setting up this process. It is also intended that children whose first language is not English will watch it in both English and their own language at home and school.
