With the pandemic seemingly getting worse as it mutates yet again we have news of an improv comedy that will hopefully raise spirits once its released and this dreadful disease has gone. Starring Sian Clifford (Fleabag), Rosie Day (Outlander) and Russell Tovey (The Good Liar, Mindhorn) lead the cast in StudioPOW’s new improv comedy feature from Jamie Adams (Black Mountain Poets), which is currently untitled.
Ophelia Lovibond (Guardians of the Galaxy), Hugh Skinner (Mamma Mia – Here We Go Again), Richard Herring (Time Gentlemen Please), Nick Helm (The Reluctant Landlord), Phoebe Torrance, Richard Elis and Laura Patch (After Life) round out the cast which heads into post-production this week.
Shot entirely on location at Margam Castle, Wales in January the improv comedy follows down-on-their-luck best friends Sally, Denise and Mick who decide on a flawless plan to receive a sizeable family inheritance – a sham wedding! They just have to make it through to “I do”.
The shoot had all cast and crew in a ‘safety bubble’ on the location where they also stayed. Kevin Proctor of StudioPOW is producing, and was on set throughout, with Perry Trevers executive producing remotely.
Director Jamie Adams said: “To make a movie during a pandemic is certainly a privilege and has been made possible by the diligence and hard work of our cast and crew. This story celebrates love, friendship and family, and we had the finest comedy ensembles ever brought together for a British indie movie!”
Perry Trevers commented: “Beginning January with a project demonstrates the start to a successful year. We have content set to shoot over 2021. Where COVID has presented a challenge, we have risen to it. This shoot allowed us, in a contained environment, to manage our COVID protocol. I am very happy to report that through strict measures, we had a 100% COVID free successful shoot.”
