Production[edit]

Stacked was created and written by Bryony Ive as her first drama commission.[1] Feeling that there was a lack of drama films for young women, she decided she wanted to write a show for and about that demographic. Following upon surveys she had read which indicated "63% of 15 to 19 year olds claimed that glamour modelling was their ideal profession", she decided to tackle the issue in a drama presentation. She sent her original script treatment to Channel 4's 4Talent Pilot competition, received positive feedback in that her film was not set in a school, and expanded it to include more scenes set in the magazine offices. Channel 4 then set her up with the Brocken Spectre independent production company to film the project.[1] Stacked became the very first drama film to be created through 4Talent Scotland]'s PILOT scheme.[2]

Reception[edit]

Stacked won Channel 4's 4Talent Pilot competition, the reward of which was [6] to be aired on Channel 4.
