A Philosophy in Funding

When we started Tin Shed Theatre Co. back in 2010 we didn’t know much about business side of making theatre. We were never taught about funding, or support schemes, we didn’t really know what R&D meant, and we never performed any sort of “work in progress”, we just made things and found places to perform them. We worked two jobs and paid an equal share into our productions to get them off the ground. Five years on, reflecting on our early work methods, the whole thing seems ludicrous,…

YURI August 012 - The madness has begun…/Y gwallgofrwydd wedi dechra… | Blog 1

Farmhouse location needed in South Wales - Paid

We are filming a short film in South West Wales in early November and we’re after a farmhouse to shoot in.

In the story a father and his son live on the farm alone, the mother is gone and the place is a little rundown and outdated. We need the interior more than the exterior so it's doesn't have to be on a farm, it just needs to look rustic and slightly unloved.  We can dress the location to look like a farmhouse interior, so it could be…
