Chicken Biscuit

Zap Project

What is the connection between chickens and custard creams? This and other metaphysical questions will be addressed in this short comic film from the Rising Sun’s Zap Project.

The Zap Project is a theatre and comedy project run by people with learning disabilities. The group write and perform their own material and have performed at the previous two Reading Fringe Festivals. They regularly perform at other Reading festivals and present an annual panto at the Rising Sun. The group are supported by The Rising Sun Arts Centre, an innovative, independent arts centre in Reading which is run by volunteers. The Rising Sun is currently facing the same threat to its existence which all theatres and live music venues face and is looking at ways to continue its work in what continue to be very challenging circumstances.

Excellent work! I loved it. Thanks to Zap for a very funny and innovative film. The camera work, timing and costumes were brilliant. I loved the bright colours of the art work and the music choice. The editing was also very sharp and helped to show the passage of time beautifully.
