Channel 4 Idents

Channel 4 Idents

We've recently cast the new Channel 4 idents which were unveiled ahead of The Great British Bake Off 2017 final.

The new brand 'idents' are designed to "personify the broadcaster's unique values" according to Channel 4. The Channel 4 Giant will feature in short clips that air between the channel's programming, and take over from the landscape-style graphics that have been running on Channel 4 since September 2015.

JB Shorts 17 & 18

JB Shorts 17 & 18

We cast JB shorts 17 and 18 for the theatre. JB Shorts is an evening of six fifteen minute World premieres by top TV writers.

JB Shorts began as a conversation between two writers, Trevor Suthers and John Chambers, who imagined a festival of short plays written by established TV writers. It could have been one of those drunken conversations that never go anywhere but instead Trevor and John followed it up by finding a venue at Joshua Brooks, then bringing on writers Peter Kerry, James Quinn, Lindsay Williams, Dave Simpson and Diane Whitley.

With the expert help of director Roger Haines, the first JB Shorts was produced in March 2009 to widespread critical acclaim. No-one had quite expected the atmosphere in the dark cellar of Joshua Brooks to be so exciting, or the audience to be so enthusiastic.

It was meant to be a one off event but the writers realised that this was a chance to try out ideas and produce new and exciting work. So the group of original writers along with Roger Haines got together and decided to turn it into a bi annual event.

Since then JB Shorts has continued to grow year on year. We are very lucky to have some amazing directors, and actors work on the show and the quality is constantly improving. The event is still run by the original writers but now also attracts many guest writers who relish the chance to write in the short form.

JB Shorts is a profit share show and involves a lot of hard work from all involved. It continues to be a big success on the Manchester scene attracting some of the best local talent and most loyal audiences around. In November 2016, the move to 53Two ushered in a new era in the JB Shorts story.

Manchester, the present.

Michael divides his time between the job center and the pub. A chance meeting with Lee, an introduction to her 'Uncle' Ian and a heavy night on the lash lead to a job working the door at a Northern Quarter massage parlour.

After witnessing the violent death of one of the 'punts', Michael experiences blood-drenched flashbacks and feels himself being sucked into a twilight world that he doesn't understand but that is irresistibly attractive. When he eventually finds out what goes on in the room below Cloud 9, Michaels' life will never be the same again.
