In the colonial setting of the Fremantle Arts Centre the first series of Josh’s House came to an end last night as the final episode of the first series premiered on the big screen at VAM Media’s event series Doco Nights.
With episode 12 being shown one year on from the launch of the first episode of Josh’s House, Josh Byrne spoke about what the project had achieved, thanked those that helped during the process and hinted that there was more to come.
‘The fact that we had 180,000 visits to the website, 20,000 viewings of the resources page and 4,000 people visit our home on the open day shows there is a real appetite for achievable sustainable housing,’ said Josh.
‘The first series has documented a tremendous journey and it has been a real success. I am very deliberately saying the first series…’
‘I would personally like to thank my family and the Josh’s House partners for their hard work, understanding, and belief in this project. Without your support the message would never have reached as far and as wide as it has.’
With bellies full of wood fired pizza the crowd settled in to watch the final episode, followed by the poignant film Elemental, a documentary that follows the journeys of three environmentalists who are obsessed by nature and driven by a deep desire to change the status quo.
The final night of the Doco Night series is on Monday the 4th of November at Mojo’s Bar in North Fremantle featuring the Western Australian hit Something in the Water, produced by WBMC Media.
