Laughter is a Serious Business

Back in December 2011 we were contacted by Clare Sturges, a Cardiff based film maker. Clare was interested in creating a pilot documentary on the work of Hijinx Theatre, which she would then be able to take to production companies to get backing for a more extended documentary possibly for television.

After initial conversations we decided that it be best if Clare joined us during the process of creating our second Snooks Brothers show, filming elements of our rehearsal process right through to our first performance at Unity 2012.

Below is the finished short documentary, we hope you enjoy it. We think it reflects the process of creating Snooks Brothers Aquatic well, from early experimentation to the excitiment of first performance. We also like the angle that Clare has taken on the importance of laughter in our lives, something which we try to reflect in all our work! Clare now plans to enter the film into various competitions, and hopefully will be able to use it to gain a commission to film a more in  depth documentary about our work - watch this space for further news!
