Just to give a taster of the kind of opportunities that come up for no drama members:

Areaman Productions contacted the group to conduct interviews to be used in a short film, you can see the results of that here.

(no drama members can be seen at numbers : 18, 27,36,45,56,59,62,65,69,99,113,116,123,133)
