Birmingham arts group Script Sirens announce debut project created during lockdown
Script Sirens is a collective of women and non-binary established and budding writers situated in the West Midlands.
Birmingham-based writers group Script Sirens are set to launch their debut project - a mini-series written and produced remotely during the COVID-19 lockdown.
The four-part dark comedy - entitled #GoingViral centres around a group of people unknowingly linked together and take bizarre approaches to survive the lockdown. Meet the Sirens here - https://scriptsirens.wordpress.com/meet-the-sirens
Script Sirens was founded in July 2019 by Scarlett Kefford. The primary aim of the group is to provide a welcoming, nurturing and safe space for women and non-binary writers of the arts to practice and hone their script writing craft with open dialogue, project feedback and collaborative projects.
With a dozen core members of all ages and experiences – writing, teaching and working in theatre, film, TV, radio and more – Script Sirens enters the new decade with a number of exciting projects in the works to share with audiences across the country.
'Going Viral' is an experiment of multimedia storytelling filmed within the restrictions of social distancing guidelines. #GoingViral is a dark comedy set in the present lockdown situation, but is not about COVID-19.
It is instead about how elements of life still continue during such crisis, for better or for worse. The series will consist of four short ‘webisodes’ released each evening on Instagram TV @scriptsirens (and then YouTube).
The first episode of #GoingViral will premiere on Script Sirens' Instagram account @ScriptSirens on Monday 8th June 2020 at 7 pm, with a new instalment to follow daily until Thursday 11th June.
