Christopher has done many things, he is a dramatist, stand-up, technologist, librettist and sometimes even an actor. He even worked as a broadcast assistant in the World Service Drama Department in 2003. Reaching the final of the ‘Storyteller of the Year’ competition in 2011 marked for him a distinct turn away from stand-up comedy and a move to something more dramatic. Since 2012 his writing output has been purely for the stage. Christopher is studying for a PHD at the Institute for Creative and Cultural Entrepreneurship at Goldsmiths, where in 2014 he achieved a distinction in his MA in Writing For Performance. His first BBC Radio Play about the life of PC David Rathband, will be broadcast in January 2016.
Timothy graduated from Drama Centre with an MA in Screen Acting in 2012, pursuing his desire to act on film. He has since appeared in a variety of stage and screen productions, as various characters in a range of genres. Timothy is probably best known for playing the leading roles in the short film Hunger (2014) and music videos The Hardest Thing To Do and FunkTrunk Skunk. He is currently represented by Brood Management.
Born in 2010, Winston grew up in Market Harbour before moving to London aged 9 months to pursue a career on screen. He appeared in a national billboard campaign for Virgin Media as 'Smokey' before retiring from modelling. After amassing 300 fans on Facebook he won an audition to star in When You're Ready and more recently won Mr October 2014 in the Lordship Lane Vets photo competition.
Julia has pursued a very diverse career in the Arts, including photography, independent documentary production, music composition and filmmaking. Her most recent projects in 2015 include production-managing Idil Sukan’s acclaimed photography exhibition This Comedian, and creating the festival trailer for the 20th London Turkish Film Festival.
When You’re Ready is Julia’s first short film as writer/director, producer and composer. It is an independent production produced and filmed at Marylebone Gardens in London. Julia, and the cast and crew, were thrilled when it premiered at the Hackney Picturehouse as part of the Lo-Budget Mayhem programme of the 12th London Short Film Festival (2015).
Julia’s passion lies with narrative music and she wrote her MA thesis on the music of Brian Easdale (Black Narcissus (1947), The Red Shoes (1948)). Julia has composed for both film and musical theatre, co-composing and musically directing the horror comedy musical Flatmates V Zombies (written by Christopher Hogg) in 2013, which played at the Camden People’s Theatre and the Tristan Bates Theatre.
Julia is currently in the pre-production stage of a series of new short music films.
