The last few months have been predominantly about developing ideas for us. This has meant working with a number of writers and checking out a load of new (sometimes to us) talent. we've also watched some amazing new comedy on TV. Hopefully we'll have lots of exciting news very soon, in the meantime...
Lovely Gary of Left Hand Gang prints designed this belta poster for our BFI Network funder short Domestic Bliss using a still shot by the uber talented James Alexander.
Our feature documentary "We Are The Geordies" won the Royal Television Society Award for Best Non-Broadcast Factual production (NETB) on Saturday. To say we were thrilled is an understatement - five years of production, rewarded.
Welcome to our two wonderful actors - Chloe and Amy.
We're really looking forward to working with these versatile actors, their self tapes were great and we can't wait to see what they bring to their roles.
After a few false dawns, brought about by Covid, we're pleased to finally be casting Joe's BFI short Domestic Bliss: A Trilogy. Long time followers will remember that this was funded way back in February 2020! Still better late than never eh?
More updates and maybe some guest posts from Joe coming soon!
We are so incredibly proud of this little film - which after the Newcastle United takeover takes on a new significance. MENA territories available.
A few years ago we were asked to make a video that shows how important the fans are to Newcastle United Football Club. Now that the club is under new ownership, I thought it might be nice to share the video here.
HOWAY THE LADS!
On Wednesday I went to a lunch with Tim Davie (DG of the BBC) where he announced that the Beeb is going to invest £25,000,000 into the Region. There is a commitment to a new sit com set here, lots of training a development, some digital jobs AND Newcastle is their first City of Comedy! Naturally this is very exciting news for all of those in the business up here.
This came hot on the heels of news on Monday that Fulwell73 are opening an office in Sunderland. Hopefully these two things will be enough of a spark to really reinvigorate the sector and allow us all to have our stories seen on screens across the world.
