We want to bring all the benefits of being a film location to Cheshire rather than taking them to L.A. or London.
We will be eating, drinking and staying locally, and we will be telling our wonderful fans worldwide about it. The stars and fans are getting behind Cheshire, and we hope you'll get behind us too!
There are a few ways you can help:
Got an idea for Sponsorship? We love ideas!
Contact us at sponsorship at radiostatic dot co dot uk
Become "The Official Provider of ...." and be listed on the film credits as well as receiving a credit and a link on our website. You'll also get an official certificate and signed production photo to display at home or in your business premises.
~ Buy individual props or perks such as our Limited Edition Collector's Items here. A prop on display in your business will provide a draw for visiting fans as well as a great talking point.
~ Sponsor an aspect of the production: this will get you or your business a credit on the film, but also an immediate credit and link on the website.
We have ideas for all budgets!

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"!
