A series about a small news show trying to put on their morning broadcast - And failing miserably.

A short summary

We are a group of University of York students looking to raise £2000 to make 3 episodes of our comedy sitcom - 'The Morning Daily'. It's about a small news show trying to put on their morning broadcast - And failing miserably. The show features two lead anchors, Erin and Aaron, a bumbling newscaster named Chester, and pop culture expert Yvonne trying to hold them all together. As the show moves through segments like news and weather, the content becomes more and more absurd.

Our story

We all know that times have been hard recently with the Covid 19 pandemic - And we want to raise the mood! That's why for our Group Project we decided to make a comedy. We're going to make something that will make people laugh, that they will love to watch, and by doing something we love to do. That's why we need your help. Without you this project won't happen. Please donate to us to make this project a reality. 

We will be making this multicamera production at the University of York's own multicamera studio space. The whole production, from the concept, to the creation of sets, to actually creating the show, will be done by our crew. This will give us vital experience we need in the field of multicamera production while looking for employment in the future.

However, without your support this won't happen. If you donate you will be helping us

With your help we can make the best set, and provide the best environment to make a funny show that everyone will enjoy. 

Where will the money go?

  • £1500 going towards creating our set - Multi Camera productions need constructed sets as most our of show will be filmed in studio. We will be constructing this ourselves but need the money for timber and other construction parts.
  • £100 - £200 on catering. Our shoot will be over the course of three days and we will need to provide food (And possibly accommodation) for our cast and crew.
  • £100 - £200 towards props that we need to decorate the set. 
  • Any additional funds will go towards distributing our work and getting more people to see it!
