The New Trailer

'Cops and Monsters' in Govanhill - 11 March 2015

With 9 days left on our crowdfunding campaign, we’ve hit our target and thankfully we can now make episode 4 of our show. We’ve set a couple of stretch goals to allow us to shoot episode 5, and one or two spin-off minisodes by Roland Moore and Hannah George.

If you’d like to support our show and help us make more episodes then please click this link to view our crowdfunding page and check out our perks.

Anne Nicholson, our episodes editor, has put together two trailers to help us promote the show at conventions around the UK and beyond. We’re pleased to share with you the first of those trailers:

Episode 4 Crowdfunding Complete!

With 13 days to go, we’ve hit our crowdfunding target to shoot episode 4 of our series!

If you’d like to support us you have until the 28th of February to grab a perk and be a part of the show. The more money we raise, the more episodes we can potentially produce.

Episode 4 is in pre-production, with auditions for the role of Alexis taking part on the 20th of February, before filming on the 19th and 26th of March.

We’ll be appearing at the Capital Sci-Fi Con on the 27th and 28th of February, with a panel at 12pm on Saturday. So come along and meet some of our cast and crew!

Once episode 4 is complete, we will be focussing on the rest of “Volume 1”, comprising of episodes 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7. We also have two stand-alone episodes written by award winning writer Roland Moore and “Wolfblood” writer Hannah George.

Sophie Aldred

“Doctor Who” companion Sophie Aldred joins the cast of episode 4, playing Tina Hedges, the aunt of new PITS member Maya, played by Ellen Patterson. Sophie joins returning cast members Ellen, Kenny Boyle, Chris Bain and Billy Kirkwood.

In episode 4 we meet a grown-up Alexis, a powerful werewolf last scene in “Preparing the Weapon“, cutting loose and having some fun, when something takes over her and her dangerous werewolf abilities rise to the surface. When Maya and Martin arrive on the scene to investigate, emotions boil over between the pair, forcing Maya to storm off, leaving Martin to continue the investigation. When Maya meets her Aunt for a coffee to cool down, her entire world is flipped on it’s head.

We have officially launched our crowdfunding campaign to shoot episode 4 today!

Over the next 30 days we will be campaigning on social media and beyond to raise the £830 required to produce our next episode. The money raised will pay for equipment, props, special effects makeup, visual effects designs, sound design, music to be composed, costumes to be bought and most importantly it will allow us to pay our cast and crew for the 2 day shoot.

By heading over to our campaign on Kickstarter by clicking HERE you can read all about our cast, the synopsis of episode 4 and the many perks you can claim in return for your support. These include signed scripts, props, set visits, posters and more.

Two exclusive mini-episodes written by Hannah George (Wolfblood) and Roland Moore (Land Girls) are also available as exclusive perks and will only be made available as a private link to our backers and for those who buy our episodes 1-4 DVD.

Our campaign ends on the 28th of February so please do spread the word and if possible, donate to our episode.

At 9pm this evening we’ll be announcing our VERY special guest star too.
