Happy to say that Facon has finally been released online to watch and enjoy! Please watch and share!
Two updates from the festival front! Facon got a special mention at the Flickerfest Green Flicks section. Joshua Dang, Barbara Ings and I were thrilled to hear it, since there were really really good films in the section. Greenflicks was judged by Costa Georgiadis, Gregory Miller and Kate Harris. The judges praised Facon for its sense of humour dealing with environmental issues.
We’re also really happy about how well the film played at all the screenings. The Short Laughs Comedy sessions were sold out and it was great to be alongside such hilarious company!
The other great news is that Facon has been chosen to tour nationally. The full tour dates can be seen here.
I’m thrilled to announce that the film I wrote and produced Facon is having it’s World Premiere at Flickerfest. It’s an amazing accomplishment for the director Joshua Dang, producer Barbara Ings and the whole team to have achieved. Come along to support the film and laugh enthusiastically at the jokes.

Eleanor Roosevelt once said that you should one thing a day that scares you. Well on Friday the 18th of July this year I did something that frightened the hell out of me. I participated in a 24 Hour Playwright Party as part of Rocksurfer’s Bondi Feast. The event involved writing a play in 12 hours that was then performed by a team of actors the next night.
It was petrifying, exhilarating and a great exercise in learning to just let go and not self edit.
The resulting play was Object, a play about an advertising creative being taught a lesson from a man acting as a table at a trendy party. It was wacky and strange and I had so much fun. A massive thanks for Rocksurfers for letting me participate!
I was sadly unable to see the play as I was in Adelaide helping out with Playwriting Australia’s National Play Festival.
See below for some snaps from the performance!
In 2013, I went to ATYP’s National Studio and wrote a monologue called ‘Facon’. In 2014, the monologue was performed at ATYP in the show Bite Me and published by Currency Press. In 2015, ‘Facon’ is going to made into a film directed by Joshua Dang!
Over the past few weeks I’ve been working tirelessly to adapt Facon (which was an all-rhyming monologue) into a screenplay. After lots of hard work we’ve finally got it polished.
It was always a dream of mine to have ‘Facon’ made into a film so I am thrilled. Please watch the crowd funding campaign video above and donate if you can spare any money.
I’ll keep you updated!
