What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


This production will have myself playing all the roles. To achieve this successfully I will require a very professional team with the right equipment. For example a make up artist that specialises in prosthetics, camera crew, sound, lighting etc.

I am very passionate about this project because it has always been an ambition of mine to create more visual content, where the original team finished. As a fan of Hancock's half hour and many other sitcoms of the time, I have always felt it a great shame that the creators were not able to continue their work. I am an actor and voice over artist as well as a writer. I am currently touring my own production called Hancock and Co in theatres around the UK. Through social media I have come to learn that the many fans of the original scripts, even after all this time, wish to see and hear new material. One of the scripts I have written is called The keep fit regime, starring all five characters. With your help I would very much like to turn this dream into a reality.
