Tiny Dragon Productions, which launched in 2021, bring together creative storytelling and digital entertainment to development immersive events in a variety of locations. Having recently won work with Stack and a large shipping company that has a arts subsidiary in China, the company turned to The Experience BankTM for help.

Experience Bank Group is a commercial venture specialising in peer groups and board / high-level recruitment for charities and SMEs with purpose. Its philanthropic offering, The Experience BankTM, offers qualifying start up and small companies primed for growth access to a bank of hundreds of leaders from the region who offer up time and experience pro-bono.

Mark Calvert, co-founder of Tiny Dragon Productions, heard about Peter Neal, the founder of Experience Bank Group through another organisation who had benefitted from the offering, Living Archive. On approaching Peter, Mark said:

“Peter was very straight with us and talked through the protocol of how to qualify and present ourselves to The Experience BankTM, which was great as we knew where we stood. The process was seamless and we are delighted now to be working with two board advisors, Barry Revels and Richard Lee. The pair bring complimentary experience and knowledge, with Barry’s background in tech kit proving extremely useful already. We are confident that Richard’s detail led approach and Barry’s industry acumen will prove invaluable in our growth and we are all very excited. Thank you to Peter and to Barry and Richard for believing in us!”

The new Stack contract, a modular design inside a container at the Sunderland site, is to create an immersive experience for families. The exciting challenge has opened up the team to working with more food and beverage outlets, increasing footfall. Peter said:

“Hearing about the exciting future of Tiny Dragon Productions showed me how they fit into what The Experience BankTM was set up to do. I am delighted that both Barry and Richard will be support them in what I imagine will be a very bright future!”

When asked for the reasons that the board advisor duo have chosen to give their time to Tiny Dragon Productions they said:

Barry Revels:

"From the start I found the enthusiasm from the team very infectious. They bring a combination of original artistic content and technology to a market which is growing year on year. This is going to be fun and exciting."


Richard Lee:

“Being part of The Experience Bank TM  brings so many opportunities to be part of the future of the region. Tiny Dragon is one such opportunity and I am delighted to be working with them to take the company to its next level.”

Mark’s partners at Tiny Dragon Productions are Matt Runham and Pippa Fox, and between them they have many years’ experience in theatre direction and production, and business acumen having sat on a number of boards in the sector.
