Sadly it isnt enough for a huge cast/ crew, but it is absolutely thrilling that for this project and for some of our awesome people, we have been able to move beyond profitshare. Cast and crew are being approached in line with relevant specialist skills for the specific project, from the awesomes who work with us on a regular basis.
Generating paid work (that we all love doing) for our actors and crew is a primary company goal. Profitshare - sharing of the ticket sales funds equally between everyone - is the best we can usually manage without external funding though.
To get this grant and project proposal accepted though, and to generate some full-rate paid work especially in times like this where it is so hard for actors and creatives to find work, is absolutely beyond words. <3
Obviously all work will be done with correct social distancing, risk assessments etc.
