The Broken Elevator is the creative project of East London-born Screenwriter Tam Paul-Worika. Conceived in January 2016, Tam teamed up with Writer/Director Deeby and Illustrator Wumzum to create a filmmaking and storytelling podcast.
Each episode involved one the trio pitching a sequel, prequel, remake and more to some of their favourite (or less-than-favourite) films. Between the three hosts – and over 18 months – more than 50 pitches were written and recorded, with more provided by a series of guests.
What started as an exercise in creativity has led to the team’s further desire to create their own original stories. Tam is now using the Broken Elevator name for future projects.
