Persona, the world’s first continuing drama series created exclusively for smartphones launches … right now. Right this second. A daily 2-3 minutes of sizzling drama delivered right to YOUR phone!
Yes, you madam!
No, not you; your phone’s shit. I’m talking to the woman behind you. Yes, you! You can get PERSONA delivered each and every day to YOUR phone!
Every day, 365 days a year for … wait for it … £1.50!
Actually, if you’ve got an iPhone, you can get it for £1.19 – there has to be some compensation, I suppose.
And you can get it right now! It’s started, it’s happening right now!
If you’re an iPhone user – get it from iTunes here: http://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/persona-drama/id417940950?mt=8
If you’re on Android, Windows or indeed any other internet-capable phone, just text PERSONA to 87474 and magic pixies will grant you access to the happy place.
Or send you a link so you can watch the appisodes. One 2-3 minute appisode a day for a whole year.
Awesome, isn’t it?
Okay, so here’s the skinny, kid – I appear to have been transported to the 1930s. What the hell am I talking about? Skinny? Really?
Okay, so here’s the deal – this is a completely new venture. No one has tried it before and it will either be a rip roaring success or a complete and dismal failure.
Or somewhere inbetween, I suppose; but that doesn’t sound as snappy.
I’d rather it was the former.
And so would you, you just don’t know it yet.
At the moment we have approximately 20 writers on the roster and if PERSONA takes off, we’re going to need a fuck load more. That’s where you come in – helping us now helps you in the future.
And helps me now, which is the important bit.
But it will also help you.
Yes, you madam! The one with the shit phone!
I’m particularly keen on giving new and emerging writers their first paid, produced credit. I like working with experienced people too, don’t get me wrong – but there’s something lovely about giving people a leg up. If PERSONA goes the distance, we’re going to be recruiting more writers and, of course, I want you to apply.
The thing is, PERSONA is a for-profit venture. If it doesn’t make money, it won’t last. The only way for it to make money is if YOU get behind it.
Yes, you madam. Fuck it, both of you. No, it doesn’t matter how shit your phone is.
What we need at this crucial, fragile post-natal moment is your support. Either by watching PERSONA yourself (come on, £1.50? You can afford that. Tell you what, I’ll buy you a drink next time I see you, deal?) or by spreading the word far and wide: friends, family, Facebook, Twitter, down the pub, a sticker campaign – carve it into a dog’s face if you have to (don’t do that, please) but just help get the word out there.
Preferably, do both. Or just one of them.
No, do both for fuck’s sake – do it. Now!
Any support you give us is greatly appreciated. You can find out more about PERSONA at these fine establishments:

PERSONA – a big drama in the palm of your hand.
