Following the success and London sponsorship of our 2013 production of Les Miserables: The Memoirs of Jean Valjean, several of our members have decided to collaborate on an crowdfunded internet film series based on the unabridged novel by Victor Hugo, in episodes of an hour each to be released for worldwide online viewing.
This is a long term project but we intend to begin filming for Episode 1: Favrolles, telling of how the main character Jean Valjean ended up in prison, by the end of 2014, and again, are seeking a full cast for this production, with most roles open for casting, including for characters not usually seen in stage or feature film dramatisations where the storyline is significantly condensed.

A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT:
In a nutshell, this is a long term crowdfunded internet film series, to be broadcast on Youtube and Vimeo, (and any other film or video sites chosen!) starting shooting by the end of 2014.
Overall, this is a three year project, with filming taking place for each crowdfunded episode, over a few days, after funding has been raised. During filming days, shoots could be an early start to late finish, and for relevant characters also include night-time shoots. A lot of locations will be in and around Devon and Cornwall in the UK, some locations in France, especially for later episodes, will be looked into as well.
This is a pretty different project, as it is based on Victor Hugo's UNABRIDGED novel (this is not the musical or a single feature film!) and we are remaining as faithful to that unabridged novel as is possible.
