Impro Film Club


b. 1986, HK.


The Impro Film Club is a project set up in 2017 by Richard West to make films through improvisation. The aim is to make films that are enjoyable to watch but also an experiment in storytelling and collaboration. The idea is that all of the participants, including the crew, are equally involved in the devising process.

The films made so far have been shot in London and Northern Ireland. The locations are existing businesses or homes and have been left as they are for filming. The actors are a mixture of experienced improvisers and those with little or no background in improvising. Each film has been devised and shot from nothing in two or three days.
