Aidan Cooper

​Heyo, I’m Aidan. I’m a huge fan of music, both listening to it and making it. I’m fascinated by how completely different sounds can go together to create something beautiful and using synths and samples to create something that would be at home either in the 1980s or the 3000s. I’ve been acting for over 10 years with some of my closest friends at my youth theatre which has truly shaped me into the person I am today. I also love film; being able to escape by shooting off on adventures with the characters on screen is a thrill. Beyond creative passions, I also have a huge interest in astronomy, board games and trains.

Daniel Hill

Hello, Dan here, I’ve been telling stories with and for young people for a very long time. I have produced and directed a ridiculous number of productions, arts education projects, and events that have seen me get up to many sane and silly things from attacking a pub dressed as a zombie to running workshops for teachers and librarians. When I’m not telling stories my head is usually looking up to the stars, as I endeavour to make sense of this place and time we’ve found ourselves in.

David Lewington

Ahoy! I am David and I am a musical sort. My first motivation for writing music is to tell a story - doesn't matter what kind or where it takes us! I like especially to work with young voices, helping them to grow in confidence, ready to take on the world. The stories I've told (and thus the music I've penned) so far range from raving with Robin Hood to jazzin' it up with Joan of Arc; from Toad of Toad Hall's folksy flora and fauna to the heavy heavy monster sound of Alice's Adventures. And plenty in between. Beyond the whooshes and the tubular bells of working life I can often be found on two wheels, dealing with a puncture by the side of the road.

Hannah-May Coull

​Heya, my is name Hannah! I’m a lover of dogs, being creative, testing out makeup products and a good cup of tea. I love using theatre, film and photography to create things that can provide people with some escapism; and I can't wait to be able to do this with 404 Productions. My ambition is to be able to work within the creative industry or within the care sector, or maybe finding a way to do both.

Indi Morrison

​Hello, I'm India! Having spent a huge part of my life growing up in a theatre environment, I am honoured to be part of 404 Productions. Theatre, film, and photography are an enormous passion of mine, and I can't wait to create and tell wonderful stories with an equally wonderful team. Big lover of music, animals, and video games. Also a meme enthusiast.

James Henderson

James is the name. I love making things, whether that be using my camera, paintbrush or whatever I can get my hands on really. Having grown up surrounded by theatre and film, I've always had a keen interest in telling and sharing stories. In my 23 years of being alive I've been incredibly lucky to have had numerous opportunities within both mediums; taking on a wide variety of creative roles in plays, short films and documentaries. Blue and pink is probably my favourite combination of colours, not that you asked. All for collaboration, trying stuff out and making it all up as I go along.

Kayleigh Benham

Hi, I’m Kayleigh! I love dogs, activism, writing and theatre (in no particular order). I’m an aspiring playwright and creative writer and would love to try slam poetry some day. Working with 404 Productions as a Young Associate is a huge kick start to what I hope will be a long, weird and wonderful career in creative writing.

Lily Coull

Hey, I’m Lily! I’m a keen filmmaker and storyteller. I love sharing tales and opening people’s minds, into new and possibly taboo ideas, whether that be in a film or on a stage. When I’m not working on a project I enjoy clearing my head with a run or expressing myself with a fun, new makeup look.

Matt Beames

Hi, I'm Matt.  I'm a ravenous reader and consumer of stories in any kind of format, and have been writing and tell them myself for well over 15 years now.  I'm fascinated by myth and folklore, and love tales that mix the fantastical and the mundane to create true magic.  I'd choose winter over summer and moonlight over sunlight, but love to find the beauty in all of them.  Other passions beyond stories and writing include coffee, noodles and board games.
