About Thon Colin Films
Thon Colin is an independent film company, producing comedy features, shorts, and sketches. It was founded by director and producer Lemon Otter.
With influences such as The Comic Strip, Christopher Guest, and Monty Python, Thon Colin Films draws on life's absurdities and mundanities to bring you a cast of characters: misfits, nutters, enablers, and failed artists in all their angst-ridden glory.
Thon Colin offers energetic satire and ironic humour, using the alter egos and improvised dialogue of a talented ensemble of performers.
The performances are improvised by the group with no rehearsals, demonstrating their original and strangely angled view of art, culture, film, and pop music from the 1960s, 70s, & 80s. The Thon Colin team are equally at home on stage as musicians and actors, in the art gallery, and on the comedy circuit.
Their work has wide appeal, featuring in showcases, exhibits, and festivals: including the Riverside Studios in Hammersmith and The Old Lookout Gallery in Broadstairs, Kent.
Whom Baint Thou?
The ensemble cast includes Gabrielle Malcolm, Sam Flastic Hughes, Adam Button, Sammi Smith, Chico Salter, Ruth Duckworth, Derek Greenan, Simon Woollett, Seffy, and many other talented improvisers. They are incredibly motivated, hard-working and stuffed full of funny ideas. 2011's 'Menialism: A Private View' reunited a cast from 20 years earlier, allowing truly authentic flashback scenes.
