A group of Barton Peveril Sixth Form College students are set to produce their own miniseries, titled The Butler’s Entropy, as part of their studies at the College. The miniseries will comprise seven episodes, which will air weekly on the College’s YouTube channel in  Spring 2022.

The group of students met on the TV Production Company enrichment activity at Barton Peveril and are collaborating to enhance their skills and boost their portfolios, in their bid to become professionals in the industry after finishing their studies at the Hampshire-based College.

As well as projects like this, students on the TV Production Company also work on live briefs with organisations and professionals throughout the country including the NHS.

Former Fareham Academy students Nat Beverley-Smith and Ryan Hope are Directors of The Butler’s Entropy and lead on the writing, casting and production of the miniseries. The Butler’s Entropy follows nine students who attend a murder mystery party that turns from harmless fun into a deathly fight for survival.

To increase the authenticity of the production, none of the cast members know the outcome of the miniseries and will record several endings to ensure they can deliver the most genuine performance possible.

“Biggest and greatest project”

Speaking on the miniseries, Nat Beverley-Smith said:

‘This is the biggest and greatest project we have done to date. We wanted to push ourselves both for ourselves now and for our futures. It’s an idea we both love and cannot wait to make come to life.’
