About Sparky Buddy Productions
What is Sparky Buddy Productions?
Sparky Buddy Productions is a multi platform production company. The company's work covers many areas of the entertainment industry and has included work in the following fields:
- Theatre Projects
- Video Production Services
- Digital Content
- Community and Educational based initiatives
The company was founded by actor and director David Pustansky in 2010. In it's initial form, the company was called 'The ImProDigies Theatre Company' and it's work focused entirely on performing improvised theatre shows.
Since 2013 the company has greatly expanded the include scripted projects, and recorded works. At this point the name 'ImProDigies Theatre Company' no longer represented the work of the company as it's new projects were no longer just improv or just theatre.
The name Sparky Buddy Productions was chosen to be named after two of David Pustansky's pets - Sparky the budgie, and Buddy the King Charles Cavalier Spaniel. David liked that the company name had a family connection, and was even more pleased that the phrase 'sparky buddy' had the definition of 'lively and high spirited friend'. Sparky Buddy Productions endeavours to embody the spirit of being a lively and high spirited friend within the entertainment industry and hopes that our audiences, and collaborators also think this.
In 2014 the company recieved arts council funding to create an anthology of short films. These included the English Civil War animated film The Battle Of Aylesbury, the thriller Scratch, the comedies Last Man Standing and The Box, and the drama Sticks and Stones.
In 2017 Sparky Buddy Productions returned it to roots of improvised theatre with the creation of the 'Extreme Improv' brand. This has seen the company create many new improvised theatre shows which has rapidly grown and now includes international touring, podcasts, online video series and merchendise.
