Our mission statement is to find, nurture and develop new writer/performers, chiefly in the field of comedy, and to write and pitch innovative scripted and entertainment formats in which to place that talent. We are committed to scouring national comedy venues and drama schools, our development researcher sees over 150 shows at The Edinburgh Festival every year, and to mounting our own live talent showcases twice a year. These are usually performed in front of an invited audience of commissioning editors and friends. We have also produced and directed a number of live shows ourselves, including the 2005 Perrier winning "Laura Solon" and "nobleandsilver"'s sell out season at The Soho Theatre in London.
We are just as interested in finding off-screen talent and have given many researchers, producers and directors their first break in television. We consequently encourage and actively seek out showreels from new filmmakers. We also encourage and actively seek out all the under-represented, under-rated, marginalised, outcasts who believe they have something huge and special to give.
In addition we are committed to finding new, surprising and often funny ways of making documentary and factual entertainment.
Most of all we encourage, admire and try adhere to the principles of relentless optimism, gay abandonment and inexhaustible humour. We reject anything designed to provoke, engineer or spread fear. We believe everything is actually already perfect.
