Joy Burch has announced the $80,000 first round of ACT Screen Arts Fund recipients:
“There are nine screen-based artists in this first round of $80,000 funding and I am delighted that a broad range of projects have been selected,” Ms Burch said.
James Batchelor, a talented young dancer and film maker, has been supported to make Ersatz – an interdisciplinary film project leading towards a multi-channel installation with live performance in the Centenary of Canberra project You Are Here festival 2013.
Other projects include a documentary about searching for the elusive night parrot by Robert Nugent, a short film about a young man who escapes from a cult by Jimmy Ennett and script development for a television series by Matt Anderson.
