Raise funds to take our Sitcom Pilot to film festivals.

by Emerge Production House in London, England, United Kingdom

My name is David Muscat, when this whole pandemic began, I thought it'd be a good idea to write a script and produce a full length sitcom pilot episode. 

And then proceed to film and edit it during the most restrictive time imaginable. 

Subsequently, I thought it'd be a good idea to fund it all myself because I subscribe to the Kevin Costner bible of 'if you build it, they will come' of Latter-day Saints. 

The end result, a wonderful cast of West End greats, a cracking film team, an extraordinary director, music created by a genius who's worked on major worldwide films and a fella who did a bit of animation on Peppa Pig.  

We produced 35 minutes of entertainment featuring Philip Joel, Darren Day, Kerry Ellis, Louise Dearman, Oliver Savile, Zoe Birkett, Amy Bailey, Tosh Wanogho-Maud & Nuwan Hugh-Perera.

We made the episode available on a dedicated website,, for people to enjoy for the price of a coffee.

Given the global situation and the context of the episode, I thought it best to try and give back to an industry that's been gravely affected by this pandemic. So I committed to donating any and all profits from the venutre back to the theatre community via charities Acting for Others and Theatres Trust.

What we have is a great example of what a series could look like, so ideally I'd like to try and push the concept out via Film Festivals. This is where I need some help.

Most festival entry prices range from £5 to £50. Rather than dipping into the monies raised and putting it against the costings, I wondered whether we might get some seperate support via generous people interested in getting behind a project.

If you'd like to help us get into some festivals, a small donation here will go a long way.

Thanking you in advance!
