THEJUICEMEDIA – 98.9% “genuine satire”: covering Government shitfuckery and the most pressing issues of our time – written & created by Giordano in a backyard home-studio in suburban Melbourne, Australia – on Wurundjeri lands.
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 completed a PhD in history, researching and writing about settler-colonialism and publishing two books (The Colonisation of Time and Coranderrk: We Will Show the Country) – after which he realised he could be more useful as a human by communicating beyond the world of academia. Which led him to embark on a number of other projects…
Juice Rap News – Giordano teamed up with UK-born rapper Hugo Farrant to co-write and produce the cult internet series Juice Rap News, which garnered an international audience with its critical dissections of current affairs, politics, memes and conspiracy theories.
Giordano as George Orwell
Coranderrk: Giordano devised and co-wrote the verbatim-theatre play Coranderrk: We Will Show The Country (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 – which he writes, directs and edits.
HONEST GOVERNMENT ADS
The Honest Government Ads has become an indispendable public service for translating the mountains of bullshit coming from our duly elected governments, into simple and honest ads that everyone can understand. The series focuses on the shitfuckery of the Australian Government, but we also regularly feature the work of other shit governments around the world.
