Some great news!

Hello everyone,

It's been a while since we've been in touch and wow, how everything has changed in the world since we last spoke. We hope you haven't been too affected by the current situation we face - just make sure you look after each other and stay safe.

It seems a tad unimportant to speak about what we've been doing in the background, but it'll make a nice escape for a couple of minutes - plus, we're using your kind donations to make this film.

We told you that we have the brilliant Katie Sheridan on board for the role of Beth, and now we can reveal who we have playing the role of Robert - the wonderful Bill Fellows (https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0271499/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0).  Bill has appeared in great shows such as Broadchurch, Casualty, Downtown Abbey and This Time with Alan Partridge. He also starred in Lady Macbeth with the always excellent Florence Pugh. It's great to have Bill on board - we can't wait to work with him.

Because we've had to create a really strict budget for ourselves, our writer, Darren, has had to do a number of rewrites to allow for the budget and we've had to loose the hotel setting for something a bit different. In fact, this has actually worked out for the best as we now have it set in a local football club. Not only that, but Malvern Town FC has very kindly allowed us to film there - which is super generous of them.

That's it for now - but as soon as we start bringing on more crew, we'll let you know.

Take care out there.
