The Backstory to FOH:
FOH is a mockumentary that explores the ups and downs of life working front of house in a theatre.
Being a creative person working in customer service can sometimes be tough, however what has come out of this is years of observations; wonderful, hilarious, heartbreaking, enraging and life affirming (to name but a few). Working in a theatre, the range of staff and customers that come through the building is ever changing and so it felt right that this would be the perfect place to set a fly on the wall comedy. So, with a lot of help and favours pulled, we made a pilot two years ago which we put on various online platforms and can be viewed here:
50,000 views later and a huge demand for more has encouraged us to make three new episodes which we will submit to various TV companies and TV/Comedy festivals before releasing online.
The new episodes will go into greater detail of the lives of some of our original characters as well as introducing some brand new ones.
However as we film in a real working theatre, time is of the essence and means we will be shooting very soon.
So the scripts are written, the cast and crew are ready to go and now we just need your help.
How much is needed and how will the money be spent?
In order to complete three episodes we are looking to raise £8,000.
As proud as we are of our pilot we are not able to produce more episodes in the same circumstances. We want to pay for our professional cast and crew as well as cover the various production expenses.
If we're lucky enough to raise over our target this money will help us get our festival submissions underway and hopefully allow us to make even more!
UPDATE: We have just added a range of exciting rewards for contributors so please check them out!
