It has been so long since I have had an article printed in the paper, Last time I think was in the MX in 2010 or something. So Sydney writer and performing arts career coach Pete Malicky hosted the World monologue games and I entered with a monologue by another filmmaker friend Forest Lin.
It was a piece I auditioned with for his short film sometime last year, I didn't get the part perhaps because of my awkward kidult demeanour but the script resonated with it enough to think it would be good for this worldwide Lockdown online talent quest. The monologue is titled point of difference and explores perhaps a coming of age mixed with Asian Australian social identity dilemma. This racially charged subject matter is a niche market but an opportunity for unique drama and with the right execution could stir thought and easily be the next GET OUT.

Above is the live streamed video, I was a finalist for the Nationals, I didn't go on to represent Australia though but I enjoyed the Vurtua lockdown limelight for that week.
I got my old Film maker mate Vinh to film my video with my newly acquired A7rii (no longer a Panny boy guys). And after being Selected as a national finalist I still was like Meh'. I knew I was going to be competing against the country's best performers so was not really expecting to get much further, hakuna matata at least till the battle dawns right. Turns out I was the only Asian face to compete at this stage too.
