Madame Yum (aka Erin M McCuskey) is dedicated to the curious. An experienced artist using film, projection, image and word. A consultant/firecracker for creatives, with regard to project forging, communications strategy, audience engagement and creative content. Shall we talk?


Erin grew up in a large Irish emigrant family in regional Victoria. Her love of the moving image grew from family films and transparencies created by her father, and the gatherings to view them. She works across many media specialising in film, photography and both spoken and written word. In 1989 she established Yum Studio a creative media company engaging with audiences through story and cinematic stylings.


She has a passion for producing projects with human rights at their core; creating media that is thought provoking, and entertaining. Her short films, installations and commissions have screened at White Night Ballarat, Museum of Australian Democracy at Eureka (MADE), Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF), Flickerfest, Indiefest, Gertrude St Projection Festival, Ballarat International Foto Biennale, along with international screenings of her work/s.
