Why?

It’s a very good question. So why? Why are we doing this?

Times are very hard and currently we’re in the worst recession ever. On top of that in the UK, the film council has pretty much stopped their funding and grants. That means once where there was £20million to apply between all the low budget directors, there is now nothing.

So, we’ve had to take things into our own hands.

We had a script, written by a very enthusiastic young woman and she wanted to bring it to life. However, like most of us, she did not have a million pounds to breathe life into it, so she did the next best thing she could.

She looked around and searched everywhere she could to find a great cast, talented editors, brilliant camera operators and some very generous individuals to allow us to shoot in their homes and businesses.

Lessons have been learned – let it be known, that the legal and administration side of film-making is NOT fun, no matter how great the project – and a lot more money has been spent than is actually available.

But that is all a part of the process.

If you have a creative bone in your body, and your passion to create consumes you and all you ever think about is making that dream a reality, then every hardship is worth it. It is worth hearing how mad you are from everyone, it’s worth the down days where it looks like you won’t get the scene right, it’s worth the long arduous task of editing.

Because you’ve gone and made something you’ve been told you can’t do.

And that is why we’ve made it. This series is not a safe option, it’s not really family viewing and yes it may only be seen by a small minority but no-one can take away from us all the hard work and dedication we’ve put into this.

We’ve made this for every writer that’s never had the courage to take it that step further. We’ve made it for that actress who never thought she’d get the part. We’ve made it for people that needed a chance, needed a break to get that push into the spotlight, even if only for 5 minutes.

We’ve made this for you.
