Picture our short film as a cross between ‘Brighton Rock’ meets ‘The Howling’; ergo a classic British gangster flick with a deux ex machina moment launching the action firmly into creature feature territory.
We’re a team comprised mainly of BBC staff and freelancers, who are used to shooting fast turn-around, HD drama. With this in mind, we are scheduled to shoot this short film within 2 weekends and we& 39;ll make sure all the money donated ends up onscreen.
As mentioned in our video pitch we& 39;re looking for funding to bring our film to life. Our cast and crew are working on this film pro bono so your investment will go towards materials for practical & special make-up effects as well as the usual below the line costs.
We& 39;re aiming to distribute the film to international & UK film festivals. We& 39;re also looking to hold a short film showcase in Birmingham as part of the films premiere.
Please get involved & help keep independent film production alive.
