The short film of the Prologue is now completed but has gone only to the Moguls that funded it - if you are not already a Mogul you will need to buy a cinema ticket, or any other perk from the range below, and we will send you a private link to watch the film online.
NB: This is all done manually by us so bear with us if the link doesn't come back immediately - just means we're not online at that moment!
and if you just like the series and want to help, all donations are very welcome!
Quality award winning drama AND our own delicious Beer!
What do you particularly enjoy about working on Minister of Chance? The team. Great actors and a diverse and talented crew. Recording days are always filled with laughter. And cakes.
How is working on “The Minister of Chance” different from other audio projects on which you’ve worked? The Minister of Chance is another world/worlds and we have nothing, not a single prop to try and bring those other worlds to life. It's like doing green screen on film but for radio. Your imagination really has to come alive. You have to give it everything. Of course that's no different to radio drama but with BBC radio you at least have your props.. a bed, knives, forks, papers etc if you need them to help bring the world you are creating to life.
Were you familiar with the crowd-funding model before working on Minister of Chance? No, never! And honestly I never thought it would work. But the MoC fans have proved me wrong.
Favourite lines from the episodes? I always enjoy kitty's made up swear words.
Memories from recording? It was the end of a long day back in 2010, recording episodes 1 and 2 when Julian and I had completely lost the plot. I remember us in fits of laughter, crying. Unable to get through a take without bursting into hysterics. I can't remember what it was we were laughing about exactly but I love working with Julian whether we are running across a frost bridge dodging arrows or lost and laughing out of sheer "sci-fi confusion"!
