Happy to say that Facon has finally been released online to watch and enjoy! Please watch and share!
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!
Three weeks ago I went away to the ATYP National Studio. I met talented people, took in beautiful scenery and churned out some writing I’m pretty stoked about. I could have not generated the work that I did without the unique environment that the National Studio provided.
I want to say a huge thank you for Australian Theatre for Young People for having programs like this. It was an incredible learning experience.
If you are a young writer I encourage you to apply for the National Studio. I think the call-out will be next year but you can be sure to know by liking/following/stalking Fresh Ink on facebook, twitter and checking the website.
If you are a philanthropist who is wanting to donate to something artsy, I definitely encourage you to support the Fresh Ink program.
Great things have come out of the program such as The Language of Love: a film by young writer Kim Ho. It has reached 489,634 views (at the time of writing) and attracted global attention.
