WE'RE RECRUITING! // PRODUCTION UPDATES // ENCOMPASS TURNS TWO!

Hello! We've a great big update for you as Summer has now officially begun in England! We'll be telling you all what opportunities are available to become part of the Encompass team for our new play Who is Moloch? and revealing a new promotional image for Stormin' Norman - plus we'll be telling you when to expect the first trailer! We also have a bumper collection of photos to show you just what we've been up to these past two years!


Set during World War III, Who is Moloch? tells the story of three soldiers and a female civilian who barricade themselves, in an underground bunker, with a sleep-inducing drug, a two-way radio and a copy of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. As they await orders following a devastating attack on their base, tensions flare in their struggle for survival, whilst their grip on reality is put to the test as they slide into a surreal, imaginary world. A new play by Pamela Carralero, this next theatre production from Encompass will be directed by Zuri Warren and is expected to hit in the Autumn of 2012.

NEW PROMOTIONAL IMAGE FOR STORMIN' NORMAN + OTHER TIDBITS!

We can exclusively reveal to you above our new promotional image from Stormin' Norman, our short dramatic-comedy film due to premier in the Summer. Check out this update from producer Jonathan via the production blog:

 "Stormin' Norman is making great progress. Composer Alex has been fleshing out score ideas with Paul and myself - if it's anything compared to his acclaimed score for What It Feels Like  we're in for a treat. Alex has actually been to visit East Ham (one of the filming locations) this week for inspiration - he's expressed a desire to experiment with this score...so expect the unexpected!

Writer and director Paul is currently working with our editor Simon Massey on a first cut of the film.  I've seen snippets of the raw footage and I think we've got something special, with its own unique charm. Part of the reason we chose the film was that it seemed to be doing something brave - not just in terms of subject matter, but in terms of where the script was heading even at its earliest stages. I think people will be pleasantly surprised."

It was also revealed when to expect the first trailer for the film. To find out more and to see another exclusive image before anyone else, visit the Stormin' Norman Blog!
