Time Warner IGNITE is a bespoke programme aimed at propelling the careers of our Club actors, writers, directors and producers to the next level.

Around each of the four productions in The Old Vic’s current Season Seven and Season Eight, Time Warner IGNITE have offered a select group of artists the chance for deep creative engagement.

Club members of Time Warner IGNITE: 2 attended a creativity weekend led by top industry professionals, exploring different artistic interpretations of the current production A Flea in Her Ear.

Following the workshop, four Club writers were commissioned to work up a 15-minute play inspired by A Flea in Her Ear. These works were then cast from Club actors, and Club directors with the event being facilitated by Club producers.

And now for the Hollywood twist.

One Time Warner IGNITE: 2 play from today’s performance will be selected to win a place in the next stage – the opportunity to work with the best emerging film-makers, and experienced industry mentors, to transform their play into a professional short film. Eight films will be created over the two seasons with a final four being selected by members of our Ideas Tap community to be screened for an audience of Time Warner execs in New York.

Ultimately, Time Warner IGNITE helps members build deep creative bonds with their peers, meet the most daring established practitioners, showcase their work to a transatlantic audience and transform their talent for playmaking into a flair for film.
