Aside from the exciting news that The Minister of Chance is returning next year with a brand-new audio instalment, we can also let you know that fans will have the opportunity to own part of the The Minister of Chance feature film, to be shot in 2015.
Uniquely, the film will be made in four episodes of film quality, so that funders can watch each episode online as soon as it is finished. It will then be released theatrically when the full movie is complete. Fans are being invited to own shares in the movie from £20.00. Director Dan Freeman is proud of the scheme: “It’s very cool, the fans have been working for this project from the start, and it really is theirs. This way they actually get to really, physically own it.” The share certificates will be a combination of legal document, poster and item of memorabilia. The investment scheme will be overseen by new Exec Producer Rob Graham, best known for indie hit film ‘The Machine’ starring Caity Lotz and Toby Stephens, which scooped three BAFTA Cymru awards, the Best of UK Film Award at Raindance, and the Achievement Against the Odds Prize at the British Independent Film Awards.
The movie will be shot in the production team’s home county of Cheshire in the North West of England, with the hope of bringing business and tourism to the area. Local businesses and employers will be able to sponsor transport, accommodation and meals for the cast. A Minister of Chance convention is now in the works for autumn 2015 which will also be held in the county, and this is also expected to bring in a legion of fans to meet the famous names involved.
