Shoot Your Mouth Off's spanking new website has gone live

16 May 2011

Shoot Your Mouth Off's spanking new website has gone live, hosting a huge range of films featuring the enormous talent of disabled people in the North East of England.

And to celebrate, SYMO is treating viewers to a feast of films for the forthcoming five weeks!!!!

First up and launching the site this week is The Sliminator, a comedy about the serious subject of obesity, featuring amazing performances from SYMO's actors and our own Derek Mathews as not just one, but two robots from the future! And also Alex Sheader, playing a well-meaning but BOOOORRRING health trainer.

Next is Quarter of the Lot, starring Hartlepool actor Phil Swinburn as a deluded karate instructor struggling with his demons (anger, drink, the CSA). Filomed as a mock-u-mentary in 2005, this is its first internet airing.

As to the remaining three films... subscribe to their YouTube channel, follow us on Twitter, but most of all, keep checking back to the SYMO site every Thursday to discover the latest, greatenst and occasionally the daftest in the world of disability film

Happy viewing - keep the comments coming!
