In the last months of 2012 Econ Films produced two short comedies on the European debt crisis. These went on to cause ‘a sensation on the web’ — not our words but those of Cadena Ser, one of Spain’s largest radio stations. We featured in national news in at least seven countries and TV news in at least four, but don’t just take our word for it, check out the coverage below. What’s next? We’re looking to take this idea further, and perhaps you might be able to help us. Why not get in touch?
Econ Films’ latest project is an online video presenting a ‘manifesto for growth’ for the UK over the next 50 years, based on today’s report by the LSE Growth Commission. Co-chair of the Commission, Professor John Van Reenen of the Centre for Economic Performance at LSE argues that we need to get away from the tit-for-tat austerity debate and focus on the real long-term challenges for the UK.

It’s a romantic comedy. She’s German. He’s Greek.
Watch, enjoy, share, tell us what you think, and what you can spot!
For more, see the film’s website.
I’ll be updating with news on the film. And I’d be delighted to hear what you think of it.
I can’t wait to share my latest film, A Very European Break Up!
It is a film that people have already been talking about for years — and whatever your views on the European debt crisis, it promises to make you laugh. It also marks the start of a new way of making films for me.
It will be released at the end of September, for free, on YouTube.
I won’t spoil it any more, but watch this space. Or, better still follow us on Twitter (@econfilm). And if you still can’t wait, send me an email email@example.com and I can send you an exclusive, private, trailer.
Until the end of September,
