Sherlock: the Podcast is out

By Shout About London

This week we’re joined by Nick Moran, creative director and Co-founder of Time Run; the ground breaking escape room specialists. Nick talks us through their newest project, a collaboration with Hartswood Films and Sherlock writers Mark Gattiss and Steven Moffat. “Sherlock: The Game Is Now” has taken escape rooms to the next level with ingenious game play, unparalleled narrative, and digital appearances from the stars of the show themselves. Nick tells us how it all came together for him and his business partners, after a series of less successful ventures. 00:36 recap on Hop King last week 02:06 Black Deer Festival 04:50 Stuart’s Mum house catches fire 06:30 the Eagles at Wembley 08:30 Ben explains why sitting down at a gig is actually a good thing 09:34 The Mary Quant Exhibition 10:35 Beyond the Road at the Saatchi Gallery 11:57 This weeks episode - Sherlock: The Game Is Now 12:50 Nick joins us in the studio 14:10 The story of how it started with a series of unsuccessful projects 16:36 Their first game, in 2015 17:00 The investors and how important financing is to a business / project 19:30 The second game, Time Run the celestial chain - and how this spawned the Sherlock Game. 20:40 Steven Moffat, Mark Gattiss and the BBC. 21:45 How you write the script of a game like this, and the mechanics of building the environment and game play 24:35 IP and the production company 26:15 Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch 28:15 The hardest thing so far - finding a venue, we also discuss the licensing issues 32:20 The future of Sherlock: The Game Is Now 36:59 Cost, times and dates 37:15 Social Media 38:38 Recap of Nick and Sherlock: The Game Is Now 39:30 What’s on this summer 40:18 This weeks thanks and Shout About social media You can reach the guests here Instagram: @221b Twitter: @221b Facebook: @SherlockTheGameIsNow Web: www.thegameisnow.com Mentions On air dining Black deer festival Hop king The V and A Beyond the Road at the Saatchi Gallery Punch drunk The Mary Quant Exhibition Hartswood Films Present Laughter Pride Give us a Shout on #ShoutAbout Instagram:          ShoutAboutLondon Facebook:            ShoutAboutLDN Twitter:                ShoutAboutLDN Instagram:           ShoutaboutStuart Please subscribe and rate us!
