Que? A Murderously Funny Trailer for one of TWTC’s Big Hits!

Tipsy Towers is a Murder Mystery tribute to one of the UK’s most infamous 2-season, 12-show TV comedic masterpieces from the 70s. Starring John Cleese and Prunella Scales, Fawlty Towers has a legendary status and a huge fan-base. TWTC’s version recreates the atmosphere and hilarity of the original in an actual hotel and makes it a sublimely funny murder …

I made this trailer as a tribute to the tribute and it has great performances from Karen, Sadie, Andy, Rebecca as well as the Audience. Camera, editing and production was all down to me of course, and I am very happy with the result.

Incidentally, the bit I was amazed to find I got a real kick out of doing was the incidental music, written on an  app called Figure – the software was developed by the Swedish group Propellerhead and is a joy to use.

Here’s the vid:
