DB Morgan (Underdog crew founder)

Since opening our first studio in Colchester city this summer we have been privelaged to work with some of the most amazing and misunderstood young adults from our region. To see their passion and talent shine through when presented with opportunity is incredible. From young actors, musicians and artists, through to film protege's and location sound recordists, our 2023 studio members have embraced every challenge faced and proved to themselves that with a little self belief anything can be achieved.
