Martin Ingle is an actor, writer, filmmaker and satirist. His work spans across documentary, fiction and theatre, so can be difficult to describe in only a few words. So here are a few more:
Here you will find more info about the projects he’s working on right now, as well as articles he has written for The Chaser and The Shovel, including content that you won’t find anywhere else (which means they didn’t want to publish it).
A BIT MORE ABOUT MARTIN
His graduate short Instructions Inside won Most Outstanding Film and Most Outstanding Script of Griffith Film School in 2011. He then caught national attention over the next few years for online documentary project Into the Middle of Things, which saw him travel across Australia spontaneously interviewing over 80 total strangers, and was featured on Channel Ten, ABC Radio National, the Queensland Poetry Festival and Woodford Folk Festival.
In 2016 he was The Chaser‘s first ever scholarship winner, selected from a nationwide pool of applicants to travel the US with Australia’s premiere satire news site reporting on the totally sane and dull process that was the 2016 presidential election. That same year he received development funding through Screen Queensland/ABC iview’s Factual Format Initiative for a live comedy project which he was also supported to take to market at MIPTV Cannes in 2017.
His mental illness comedy/drama series Disorderly was a recipient of Screen Queensland’s Talent Development Initiative in 2018. The pilot script was awarded Highly Commended in the AWG’s 2018 Laugh Out Loud Competition, which placed it in the top six scripts from entrants nationwide, and was a 2019 finalist for the prestigious ScreenCraft Fellowship. It’s in development right now.
In 2019 he began self-produced short satire series F Off We’re Full, a satirical comedy about modern white nationalism in Australia. The full series is in production in 2020, but you can watch the teaser episode online now at foffwerefullseries.com
Offscreen, he has produced and adapted the acclaimed immersive rock adaptation of Shakespeare’s Much Ado at Anywhere Theatre Festival 2018. He is also the co-founder of Ruckus, one of Australia’s premiere spoken word and independent arts orgs, producing multiple events monthly, including open mics, cabaret, and experimental indie theatre.
He thinks Twitter is a toxic environment and he will maintain that opinion until he gets more followers. Follow him on Twitter.
