Facon – A Short Film
The story of the project
Facon is Josh’s 7th and most ambitious short film yet. It will run for approximately 10 minutes and be completed for his UTS Masters Major Project. The film is based on Felicity Pickering’s monologue of the same name, which was performed at the Australian Theatre for Young People (ATYP) last year.
Facon is a black comedy about Tia, a girl who tells one white lie that spirals out of control. She must confess her love of meat to her vegan boyfriend before he meets her family. The film is essentially a story about family, the things you do for love and staying true to your identity.
We are currently in script development/pre-production with the goal of shooting in mid-late August. The final film must be completed by late October.
Our films have screened at numerous festivals before and our aim is to enter this film into bigger and better festivals around the world. This would help showcase the talents of our cast and crew and hopefully get Josh some exposure as a Director.

Inspiration for Tia’s modest family home.
The film will end up costing significantly more than the Pozible target but $7000 is needed to get the project off the ground. Most people working on the film (including some professional crew) will be volunteering their time and skills.
The Pozible funds along with Josh’s own funds will be used for:
Camera Gear/Equipment Hire/Lighting Hire
Production Design/Art Department
Catering (20+ people for several days)
Paying some Cast and Crew
Pozible Commission Fees
Any money in addition to the target will still be used for the things listed above and more festival entries and marketing.
