Malvernbard is a small UK theatre company. We started in 2007 with no aspirations to be a big company, just a good one.
Since then we have produced twenty-four new plays (comedies, histories, dramas) that have played in small studio spaces, larger theatres, and even the Other Place in Stratford upon Avon, home of the Royal Shakespeare Company, as well as touring some of them.
We would like to take one of these plays, a comedy drama called MOVABLE PROPS, and produce it for the screen, creating a twenty-minute to half-hour television piece.
All the company are trained, experienced and have worked in the theatre for years, we've just never had a small-screen break. We'd like to move our production from stage to screen in order to reach a wider audience, and to keep you entertained.
With Movable Props as a business card, and having learnt through production how to create for the screen, we hope thereafter to attract the interest of television producers, and maybe even move this idea forward as a series.
Risks and challenges
The cast and production team are in place. We have filmed some test footage, budgeted for the production, have locations ready, accommodation provided, transport in place and are ready to roll...
We plan to shoot the week of 18th February 2019.
If we do not manage to raise the funds then we start to lose cast and crew to other commitments. We believe we have 'lightening in a bottle' and really want to capture this production while we can.
