Meet the Makers short doc.

Meet the Makers short doc.

On the link below, the cast (and Zoom wizard!) of ‘The Machine Stops’ talk about what making a Zoom show is like. They describe the challenges and the joy of producing online theatre in isolation.

Some of the cast members are ‘old hands’ at this online lark, having been part of The Tempest with Creation Theatre and Operation Elsewhere. And some are fresh to the process, and to Big Telly!

The biggest part of this whole process, across all the shows, is the performers. The astonishing resourcefulness, creativity and positivity they bring to every scenario .. actors and artists are our life blood as a producing company.

The Machine Stops is live on the 6th & 7th of June – virtually at The Riverside Theatre!

Let’s hand it over to them to tell you a little bit about Zoom, theatre, low band width and other things…
