FRONT UP REDUX

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND
Front Up – never assume anything about anyone – was Andrew L. Urban’s groundbreaking prime time social documentary series on SBS TV in the 90s. Popular interest in the program has never waned, so Andrew is now bringing it back – online, for everyone to enjoy, using crowdsource funding to make it happen. You can help: visit the pitch at pozible

Andrew and cameraman Greg Kay will produce up to 20 new, impromptu, revealing interviews with strangers, about the milestones, relationships, highlights, tragedies and triumphs of their lives. 

Our golden rules are still the same:
* Front Up is not a freak show
* There is no agenda
* We are non-judgemental

Fans of the SBS TV show include Bryan Brown, Dr George Miller, Hugo Weaving

Bring back Front Up: “We love Front Up in our house. Andrew Urban is the best interviewer on television.” 
- David Eldridge

“Urban’s spur of the moment interviews often turn into compelling confessionals.” 
– Brisbane Courier Mail
