In 2008 the company expanded its brief to embrace film and broadcast media and Fuschia Films was born. Fuschia Films made a short film entitled Rebel with a Cause shown at SFC at the Cannes Film Festival in 2010, with the support of funding from Screen South and UK Films. We are in Pre-production for a Documentary film entitled Overcoming Pride & Prejudice and have a number of films in development, including a feature film about Bertolt Brecht, the company he founded, the Berliner Ensemble and an English woman’s journey to East Berlin in search of his creative genius. Also in development are films about Black British composer Samuel Coleridge Taylor and a new romantic comedy set in London and India, Love isn’t it? Meanwhile Fuschia is also making high quality video trailers for a number of organisations.

Presenting drama which has a strong musical element has always been a hallmark of the company’s work and in 2000, we ventured into the arena of the creation and performing of new musicals. PAUL, Strange Kind of Hero has already had a remarkable career presented in promenade performance in exciting spaces such as the Round House in London and Sirocco Works, a ship building factory in the Belfast Docklands; it combines gripping drama with stunning songs, a community choir working alongside the professional performers and multi-media lighting and projections. Top pop composer Chris Eaton has written the music and also collaborated with Sue Pomeroy on the new musical based on The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Anderson which is is the next production to look out for.
