Magnify Your Potential

Filmmakers in North Wales will have the chance to make the most of their ideas at Ffilm Cymru’s latest Magnifier event.

Held at Bangor University on 27th and 28th July, the Magnifier training days will provide an opportunity for filmmakers and content creators to learn from an international selection of speakers from the film, theatre, games and cross-media sectors.

 

Considering the explosion in alternative routes to audience and an increasingly tough film financing climate, the first session on Friday 27th will explore how the role of the producer has evolved. One of the world’s first cross-media producers Asta Wellejus will discuss with Wrexham-born producer Andy Evans (Keepers, Julian Lennon’s Everything Changes project) and former Bedlam Productions’ producer Stella Nwimo (…Is it the Design on the Wrapper, Nuclear). The second Friday panel will discuss reaching young audiences with Chris Payne, Managing Director of North Wales games developers Quantum Soup, Paula Clark and Jessy Roberts from York Theatre’s TakeOver Festival, and Wicked Wales film festival director Rhiannon Wyn Hughes.

Saturday 28th will start with Finding Your Voice – a conversation with Kieran Evans, the BAFTA winning director of Kelly + Victor, followed by an interactive filmmaking masterclass from Asta Wellejus.

Tickets for each day are £20, or £30 for both days. Book your place here.

 

TAPE Communuty Music and Film

TAPE Community Music and Film present M.E awareness raising drama – M.E, Myself and I.

In the UK alone it is estimated that 250,000 people suffer with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, more commonly known as M.E. Often these people feel let down by society, the health care system, education system and the government, but most of all they feel like they have no voice.

M.E, Myself and I is a new drama series, that seeks to raise awareness of ME and to reduce the stigma felt by those diagnosed. Episode 1 will be released on June 30th 2018. It tells the story of Rachel, a teenager who has been diagnosed with M.E. The show is written and directed by Thomas Ellis, who has suffered with M.E for 17 years. It features creative contributions from young people diagnosed with M.E, including Maliha Jain Vincent Gaspar, who wrote a poem featured in the episode and Ada Davidson who contributed a touching stop motion animation.

“M.E, Myself and I, was incredibly difficult to write as I was having to revisit some dark, lonely times. I feel however it was very much
worth while to do as without people coming out and
discussing M.E, awareness would not continue to
grow. One of the aspects I’m delighted about is having creative contributions from Maliha and Ada within the show. I believe these contributions really hit home that this is not just my story, it is one shared by many all over the world.”
Thomas Ellis – Writer/Director

TAPE Community Music and Film the charity that has supported Tom to realise the series, helped recruit cast and crew for the show with local people gaining experience both in front of and behind camera.

“I got involved with this project after meeting Thomas on a prior TAPE project after which I was asked if I wanted to play Rachel in the production. I enjoyed the process very much; it was great fun to do. I am thankful from the bottom of my heart for having been given the opportunity to do this and I’m really looking forward to filming episode 2.”
Chloe Thomas – Actor

Now in its 10th year, TAPE provides workshops, projects and opportunities to develop new ideas and skills, gain training and find employment all in a safe supported and inclusive environment. TAPE CEO Steve Swindon said of the project ‘We believe that creativity is a route to wellbeing for individuals and communities, something we think is very much present within the M.E, Myself and I project and we are proud to be able to give both Tom and the project our continued support.’

Alongside the release of the show, the debut art exhibition from Angela Nananidou will be on show at TAPE Community Arts Centre all summer. Angela who suffers with M.E has described how her paintings “…express that struggle between hope and despair, brightness and gloominess; structure and looseness; light and darkness; clarity and brain fog; isolation and escapism.’

Isolation and escapism are themes that run through Angela’s work and also episode 1 of the show. They also feature heavily in podcast interviews the cast and crew conducted with M.E sufferers and their care givers. Recorded at Barnardo’s in Rhyl the podcasts offer a deeper insight and range of views on the condition.

We hope that M.E, Myself and I, along side Angela’s exhibition and the Podcast episodes will raise additional awareness of M.E through creative medium and a better understanding of it within the community. We are also delighted that within the project we have been able to continue our philosophy of supporting people of all abilities to be involved in filmmaking.

Hijinx

Be upstanding for The Flop –

HijinxHijinx takes a firm hold of one of France’s 
most explosive tales

The makers of Meet Fred team up with Spymonkey for a some serious clowning around.

 

Pioneering Welsh theatre company, Hijinx, have a brand new show The Flop, which previews at Chapter in 12-14 July 8pm, before making a world premiere at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

 

The Flop, developed with clown supremos Spymonkey, is a historical romp through a bizarre true story of the impotency trials in 17 Century France. Embracing the art of clowning, slapstick and breaking a farcical fourth wall, The Flop blends Hijinx’s trademark playful humour with Spymonkey’s anarchic physicality.

 

About The Show

Paris. 1657ish. Impotence is illegal. When the Marquis De Langey is accused of being less than upstanding, his wounded pride leads him towards a monumental and very public flop. The Flopis a clowning physical comedy show with live music and big wigs.

 

Hijinx, one of Britain’s leading inclusive theatre companies, were winners of Best Ensemble in the Wales Theatre Awards in 2016 for Meet Fred. The Flop is a Hijinx production and the cast comprises of three learning disabled actors alongside three non-disabled actors. It is directed by Ben Pettitt-Wade (Meet Fred) and Toby Parks from Spymonkey is creative mentor and composer.

      

About Hijinx

What makes Hijinx different is that their casts always include professional actors who have learning disabilities. The ability of these effortlessly talented performers is at the heart of every show they produce, creating work that is utterly absorbing, surprising and provocative.

 

About Spymonkey

SPYMONKEY is the UK’s leading physical comedy ensemble, based in Brighton. They have been making sublimely hilarious and deeply ridiculous theatre for the last 20 years, delighting audiences around the world.

 

The Flop previews at Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff, 12-14 July, 8pm. Tickets cost £10 and can be purchased at www.chapter.org./flop or 029 2030 4400.
