BANGALOW-based musician Lydian Dunbar, member of the inclusive electronic experimental pop band Tralalablip, has been teamed up with Jonatan and Sebastian Lundmark from Rest Your Eyes Production in Byron Bay as part of Screenworks' Createability project.

Createability is funded and supported by Screen NSW and the NSW Department of Family and Community Services and aims to increase the profile of NSW arts and disability programs using screen media.

Two other teams of filmmakers are also working with local artist as part of the project.

Lydian is studying music production at SAE Institute in Byron Bay, and with Tralalablip will perform in Germany later this year. He is looking forward to seeing the three-minute film about his life and music.

"Music makes me happy, it's my passion and making the movie sounds like a lot of fun," he said.

Film-maker Lundmark said he and his brother bonded with Lydian very quickly.

"It's a real pleasure working with Lydian, he wears his heart on his sleeve and is very in tune with his emotions," he said.

The brothers visited Lydian at SAE Byron Bay, in his home music studio, and out and around the streets of Bangalow where Lydian has lived his entire life and is very well-known.

"By the end of the day we had laughs, tears and love stories on camera," said Sebastian.

Screenworks general manager Ken Crouch said Createability was about local filmmakers giving a voice to artists with disability.
