Ministry of TruthCREATOR, SERIES DIRECTOR, PRODUCER. MULTI-PLATFORM SERIES
The Ministry of Truth is a subversive media collective secretly broadcasting from the Brisbane and Australian underground. Presenting attention deficit television across all platforms: web channel, mobile, free-to-air, download and fileshare.
Like a hair ball stuck in the throat of the corporate media, the Ministry coughs up alternative television created by an ensemble of Australian and International artists delivering personal, humourous and uncensored views of their world. Framed like the erratic clicking of channels it switches from news, docos, shorts, commercials, pranks, animations, music vids, talk shows, video art and more. It’s anarchic as the net itself, nothing’s off limits: sex, drugs, politics, philosophy, science, satire, music, art and the destruction of it.
It serves up a chaotic blend of contrasting viewpoints and shies away from television that tastes bland like hospital dinners. It’s comprised of entirely contrasting segments no longer than five minutes. Diverse, DIY media produced without the artiface of the 20th century.
Ministry of Truth produced original comedy segments for ABC’s JTV in 2007 and have screened at festivals around Australia including Straight Out of Brisbane and This Is Not Art.
Ministry have produced 5 half hour episodes of original content released on DVD and online.
Ministry of Truth was granted web development funds from Screen Australia for a social networking space in 2007 created at www.ministryoftruth.tv.
