Story Builders: a family co-operation

Fun at the Fringe this year, with Jim (together with son Alex and daughter Hess) mounting a show under the company name The Interactive Storytelling Collective. Aimed at 5 to 90 years olds, it is in the Children's section of the Fringe brochure and takes the form of a show cum workshop.

Here is what the Fringe brochure has to say:

How to build a story – for everyone! Want to be the best storyteller you know? Come and join the Story Builders! You'll learn the secrets of every great story and together we'll create a spectacular story built from your ideas. An interactive show for children, adults… and everyone in between (which is most of us, isn't it?).

Fringe Website and bookings can be made at:

Pease note that although all the performances are taking place at the same venue, two (8th and 9th) are in a different hall.  Consequently, the Fringe has made it two listings.

The Hum

HUM is a short Sci-Fi film that draws inspiration from real life events surrounding the hum phenomenon, experienced in Bristol and Taos. A story of grief and loss, HUM blends together elements of character drama and mystery with contemporary quantum physics theories.

It has been short listed for Best at Loch Ness Film Festival (July 28th 2017), selected for Fantasia International Film Festival and Dragon Com Independent Film Festival in Atlanta (2017).
