New theatre company will help researchers increase impact

The University of Warwick’s Professor Emerita Gillian Hundt and acclaimed theatre director Claudette Bryanston have joined forces with two digital media producers to launch a new company through Warwick Ventures.

STAMP - Santé Theatre and Media Productions will create new, innovative theatre productions alongside digital assets to help academics and others increase the impact of their research.

The digital media partners in STAMP are award-winning former BBC staff Catherine Elliott-Kemp and Ben Robinson, who as Zebra Digital Ltd, have created a diverse array of programming for British and global TV networks as well as producing films for commercial, educational and charity clients.

Professor Hundt, who has been associated with Warwick Medical School and the global Social Sciences community for many years said, “There is a huge opportunity for academics to share their research beyond academic journals, and STAMP will be offering our expertise to those who have ambitions to increase impact.”

Digital Producer Catherine Elliott-Kemp said, “ Our team is perfectly placed to take world-class research and to use our creative, digital and marketing skills in this exciting new venture. With the help of the Warwick Ventures business incubator, we will seek out the most promising new projects to take them to a bigger multiplatform stage and the wider public.”

Artistic Director Claudette Bryanston, who has worked with some of the most respected names in the UK and the USA said, “My previous experience of turning scientific research into innovative theatre has shown the incredible impact this can have on the public understanding of research especially in fields like health and medicine. We are thrilled to be launching this venture at a time when are our collective skills are so much in demand.”
