Since taking his first tender steps as underground rapper Doc Brown, Ben’s career has encompassed a multitude of successful incarnations. From stand-up comedy to straight acting, his credits include starring roles in ITV drama Law & Order and the Ricky Gervais movie David Brent: Life on the Road. On the other side of the camera Ben’s career has been no less prolific. Along with creating the BAFTA award-winning Four O’Clock Club for the BBC, he’s also co-written and starred in cult animation Strange Hill High. If that wasn’t enough, he happens to be devilishly handsome and has the most beautiful wife and children you are ever likely to see.

As an experienced primary school teacher, Siobhan has all the know-how required to run an ambitious production company. She is patient, pragmatic, can juggle a hundred things at once, and is incredibly good with numbers (especially the magnetic ones).

Vanya is the Claudio Ranieri of production management: disarmingly charming, a magician with limited resources and capable of getting world-class performances from lower league veterans like Jamie Vardy (delete as appropriate). Her previous experience includes stints at Firecracker, Hat Trick and October Films. Vanya has a BA in Social Anthropology and Cultural Transformation studies, and is also learning to play the ukulele. Yee Hah!
