Liquid Soap is a Webcast TV comedy series written, produced and directed by students at Bath Spa University / Artswork Media. The webcasting project, led by Eastenders Producer/Director Chris Jury and Touch Films Producer Nic Jeune, aims to provide an ongoing professional production environment for all Bath Spa Broadcast Media, Performing Arts, Design and Screenwriting students.
"Set entirely in the toilets of the café at ‘First Central University’, Liquid Soap will reveal the hilarious world of gripping micro-dramas that are played out daily in this intimate location.
It’s Marion & Geoff meets Shameless; The Office meets Skins; Spinal Tap meets the The Smoking Room."
Episode One and Episode Two are already live and every Monday a new episode becomes available, culminating in the release of the 30 minute Omnibus on Monday 16th November.
Not only this is an excellent hands-on project for the students to learn about the industry but also a way to fundraise for the partner charity Wherever the Need. "This Bath-based charity initiative is a unique community arts project fronted by high profile celebrities, such as Sienna Miller and the Duchess of York, and is open to anyone who wants to pledge their support to help raise money to build eco-sanitation toilets and provide clean drinking water for people in India."
The aim this academic year is to produce ten new 5 minute episodes and then to carry on producing 15x5 minute episodes a year for the next five years. Take a peek at the Trailer and the Making Of or learn more about it here.
