May you all have a safe and wonderful festive holiday. Here's to a more productive 2022.
A major talent has expressed interest in one of the Short Films being planned for next year, we hope that they agree to attach themselves to the work.
The new project has been delayed due to unforeseen circumstances, but we hope we can launch this early next year.
Work is ongoing on an animated Short Film, we hope this will be ready in time for the festivals next year.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, we have decided to postpone filming until 2022 as we cannot guarantee safety for everyone no matter what procedures we could look to put in place.
An exciting new project has begun, we hope we can reveal this to you before Christmas.
Now aiming to film a second Short film this year to help pick up speed. Also more vital than ever to support crew and cast while helping to promote some of the best in the business.
Our planned celebrity voiced podcast has been delayed due to the ongoing pandemic, however we hope to get things moving next month.
Funding for our next Short film continues. We are committed to ensuring all cast and crew are fully paid - 'mates rates' are not viable after a year of pandemic.
The new podcast recordings are being scheduled with an amazing celebrity. We are very excited with this new venture. More details to follow soon.
We have finally found an animator to work with on a series of Short films. Watch this space over the coming year.
Happy New Year and we hope you are all safe and well. Let's hope we can all get back to creating this year.
Monsoon Jackson has again been selected to feature on BBC Upload. Nice way to round off what has been a challenging year for everyone.
Wishing everyone a safe and festive (far as we can) season. Thank you to everyone who has supported us this year. Here's to 2021.
The new podcast is nearly ready for recording in 2021. We have an amazing celebrity lined up for this and cannot wait for you to enjoy.
Unfortunately, another development opportunity has fallen through - but hardly surprising given what this year has been. Onwards and upwards. On the upside Monsoon Jackson featured on BBC Upload and has seen another surge in downloads.
Our Short Film 'InSpite' has been officially selected for the Unrestricted View Horror Film Festival. We are also developing another Podcast along with aiming to produce two animated Shorts early next year.
Our Short Film 'InSpite' has been officially selected for the Lift Off Network at Pinewood Studios. Also, one of our scripts has reached the Stage32 Quarter Finals.
We have decided to leave #Facebook. We do not believe this social media platform is doing enough to support others and the truth. You can still get in touch on #Twitter and via email of course.
Our @MonsoonJackson #podcast Series 2 is receiving great reviews. Involving such amazing people as Reginald D Hunter, Wheatus and Dirk Maggs.
Monsoon Jackson, Series 2 launches. This series features amazing guest vocal talents and we are honoured they gave their time to this project. Thank you.
Obviously filming plans are on hold but other options are being looked into. We hope everyone, who can, is staying indoors and keeping well.
Monsoon Jackson is in the edit and In-Spite has been submitted to a number of festivals. Updates later this year.
After some unplanned delays, Monsoon Jackson Series 2 is being recorded. Hopefully to be out in February for you to enjoy.
Planning for the next film Short has begun. A more ambitious work but will be bringing a Screencraft Finalist script to life.
Work has started on redrafting feature length scripts with a view to the 2020 Competition cycle.
Big River are going from strength to strength. Check out the next gigs or even buy their CD and support live, independent, music.
InSpite is now locked but will be entering the 2020 Festival season so, to comply with the rules, cannot be released. Sorry.
Next Short is in the final edit. Will be released on Vimeo. Link to follow.
The writing of Monsoon Jackson Series 2 is nearly over, then into the studio to record and hopefully out by October.
The next film Short is reaching the end of editing. It has evolved since filming took place last year and will, we hope, be well received.
Series 2 of our podcast Monsoon Jackson is in progress with the aim to record towards the end of this year. Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to provide their kind and positive feedback of Series 1 (and some who are demanding Series 2 is out sooner!)
Sadly the animation Short has faltered. This happens. We are finding alternative resources and hope to get it made by the Summer.
New contacts made and hopefully some exciting developments to happen but, as always, it is a slow and winding road.
Attended the BAFTA Awards this year to watch, in next few years want to be there as a nominee.
Monsoon Jackson has received some incredible reviews for which we are very thankful. If you enjoyed it, please give us a 5 Star. In other exciting news we are now managing a hugely talented band (Big River, see Produced Work for details) who have big things ahead of them.

Our latest live Short is entering the editing phase, with our animated Short hopefully to go into production in December.
Filming this month, exciting times. Unfortunately, the release of the next Short has been pushed back to December though the Podcast remains on schedule.
Filming due next month and all the usual last minute fun has kicked in. Changes in crew, actors and location. But everyone has been incredibly supportive so it will happen. We hope you will enjoy the result.

'Sunday Morning' had a private screening. It was a resounding success followed by a Q&A session with the invited guests. Favourite quote of the evening about the film was "freaky as f**k".
We are pleased to announce that Sunday Morning has been selected to screen at the London International Short Film Festival 2017.
Following attendance at the Screenwriter's Festival, London - two film companies have expressed interest in our work. Exciting times.
