More about the film:
The film is the new vision from the "My first short film". This film is more dynamic and better then the first one. It has stories and interviews from my life story when I came to Australia and became an actor in the mid 90s It also has stories from the "Sticks and Stone showpiece" it began in 2007 when I asked the Coordinator from the Springvale Nieghbourhood House whether they could help and auspice me to make a film about my life with my disability and my dream that I became an actor. The Coordinator gave me a contact to meet a film maker/photographer. His name is Costas Athanassiou. He had a great deal of work from the major communities with the Multicultural communities, the local councils, and other minor community groups. He also does weddings and other special occasions.
In 2008, we applied a grant from the VMC (Victorian Multicultural Commission) as part 1 of the process. In the following year, the application was a success and we started in June that year.
A couple years later, Fusion Theatre was the 2nd company to auspice and we applied for a grant from the City of Greater Dandenong. The council had a consideration that we did the first half with VMC and they allowed us to finish the project. in 2011 I made a launch of the film and it was a success.
In 2012, the film was shown at the Other film Festival (by Arts Access) and it was a success with the support of the public.
In 2014, the film was also shown at the 21st of Greek Short Film Festival was the first to show the public about the disability in the Greek Community.
