Innovate UK: The Intelligent Home

Here is the first bit of copy writing I did for the amazing Nucco Brain team last year. An exciting – or scary – your choose – vision of the Western domestic future:


‘Framed’ for Alibi Channel

I had great fun playing a police officer for @UKTV and @mink_ette in their interactive Facebook hidden room game Framed. Live to the internet, earpieces and two separate voices talking us through the story, anything could happen. No pressure!

I’m pleased to say the viewers solved the mystery in time, so I got to smile as well as handcuff the guy at the end mwah ha ha. If you want to have a go at solving the clues before the audience did, or see me in a uniform, visit and have some fun!

Thanks to Mink for letting me come play, and to James Curtis and Alli Zionts for putting us in touch.

Officer Reed.


Aversion Interview 1

As part of our research for our film Aversion, we interviewed various people about their experiences of growing up gay in the 1950’s and 60’s. We were interested primarily in the general atmosphere of the time, attitudes to and knowledge of homosexuality (and transexuality), and the impact these things had on their lives.

Here is the first part of our interview with Dave Wakely.

We hope these videos will be of interest. They certainly have helped us get a better feel for the environment in which our characters lived and formed.

If you yourself would like to contribute in any way, or know someone who might, please get in touch. These interviews are a work in progress, and any contribution may we of use to us, and the message we are trying to get across.
