FILM SHIZZLE
THEATRE SHIZZLE
COMMUNITY SHIZZLE
The films we make very much reflect our personalities as we are, essentially, our own target audience. With each film we produce, we constantly aim to create a distinctly unique feel that people will hopefully come to associate with our work. Our slate includes the feature films How Not To Work & Claim Benefits (Released Internationally, 2017), Friday the 14th: The Legend of Camp Aztitz: Part 3D (in development) and The Unprofessional (in development); the documentary How to Make a Film for Nothing and the short films The Commission and Acting Grown Up (completed). It also includes numerous community-based projects and comedy shorts.With a focus on new writing, our work ranges from the dark and hard-hitting through to the sadistically comic. Our first theatre production, A Story for When Were Grandads, won the Best New Writing award at Buxton Fringe Festival and was nominated for Best Production. It has now been adapted into a successful film. Our theatre repertoire includes the full length stage plays Operation Perfect Teaset's 80's Summer Camp, A Story for when we're Grandads, Playtime for the Suicidal and Don't Blink Don't Breathe. We create new work for new audiences. Since 2007 we have been dedicated to new theatre-making and, in more recent years, film, using creativity as a means to raise awareness of mental health issues and to improve participants' wellbeing. The catalyst for the professional work we produce is often the issues and ideas which are brought up by the people from our local community. Our creative practitioners  have wealth of experience delivering community projects.
