About Honest Government Ads
Hey friends of the Juice Media, here’s our end of year video! This time I wanted to share with you some of the story behind the Honest Government Ads – with some outtakes and Behind the Scenes action thrown in for good measure! I hope you enjoy it. Giordano <3
Giordano Nanni is a historian, writer and video producer. He completed a PhD in history, writing and researching about settler-colonialism, and published two academic books (The Colonisation of Time and Coranderrk: We Will Show the Country) after which he eventually realised he could be more useful as a human by communicating with peeps beyond the world of academia. Which led him to embark on a number of other projects, such as:
Juice Rap News: Giordano teamed up with UK-born rapper Hugo Farrant and together they co-wrote and produced the cult internet series Juice Rap News, which garnered an international audience with its critical dissections of current affairs, politics, memes and conspiracy theories, and in which Giordano appears in the guise of beloved characters such as Ken Oathcarn, George Orwell and Bill de Berg.
Giordano as George Orwell
Coranderrk: Giordano devised and co-wrote the groundbreaking verbatim theatre play Coranderrk (produced by Ilbijerri Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Theatre Company and La Mama Theatre in collaboration with the University of Melbourne) which brings back to life the remarkable struggle for justice of the Coranderrk community – arguably one of the greatest unknown stories in Australian history.
In 2016, Giordano launched the Honest Government Advert series, collaborating with his partner and voice-actor Lucy Cahill; as well as actors Ellen Burbidge, Zoë Amanda Wilson and Matylda Buczko-Koren.
