I'm pleased to announce Bang2writers Charlie Swinbourne and William Mager have been at it [creatively] again and produced the rather fabulous internet series, The Fingerspellers.
The series premiered as part of the deaf magazine show Wicked, which was made by the deaf production company Remark! The Fingerspellers is a fun take on the whole Godfather *thing*, with "Deaffathers" replacing the central role. 'Cos this is just any ordinary Mafiaoso family - these guys use fingerspelling, NOT guns, to protect The Family: whoever can get through the WHOLE ALPHABET gets the "final shot" and effectively KILLS their opponent. [For a run-down on fingerspelling in general, click here].
I'm proud to have been a small part of Fingerspellers as a script editor for Charlie: I think it's a really original, fun story and know there's plenty of twists and turns in store in further down the line. Mega props to William too, think the whole piece looks fab.
But then these guys are always great to work with; I was lucky to provide notes on their previous effort Hands Solo, funded by The Film Council in association with The Magic Hour scheme. Hands Solo is not only hilarious, poignant and interesting, it's my fave mockumentary script to date - and I read A LOT of those for low budget filmmakers as you can imagine! Nice one fellas.
