Jonathan has always been one of a kind. He is loving, patient and selfless; the type of person to do anything for anyone. In particular his child hood sweetheart, Rosie, who he gives everything that her heart desires. He is always thinking of other people, that& 39;s probably why he is a Child Therapist. Helping people is what he does. Yet, all the while Jonathan has wanted but one thing for himself; a family of his own. Jonathan& 39;s dream came true with the birth of his only daughter, Bethany.
However, their time together as a family was short lived, as Bethany was lost.
A year has passed and the pain is still too much for the broken family. Rosie now bordering agoraphobic, relies on her husband for constant support. Being the philanthropist he is, Jonathan has no time to grieve.
With tensions rising and the couple drifting slowly apart, the bond they once had rests upon the edge of a knife. It is only when an unexpected arrival of a young girl with a supernatural power comes into their lives, that the couple can have their closure.
Our story starts with Jonathan meeting up with Jane; an old patient of his. She too has always yearned for a family of her own, having had a troubled childhood in and out of foster care. Now aged 17, Jane is being pursued for the special power she possesses. After being shown this power, Jonathan& 39;s paternal instincts kick in and he decides to protect her. The pair manages to find a hiding place from Jane’s hunters. However Jane can& 39;t run forever, just like Jonathan can& 39;t from his past.
Meander is a short film about unconditional love and escapism.
Hi, my name is Zachary Carl Ord. I’m writing to you today with my co-writer/director Dan Rymer. First of all thank you for taking the time to visit this page, it’s greatly appreciated. We are both avid film makers of five years now and believe that this story could be our best yet. We have been developing ‘Meander’ now for six months and are getting ready to move from preproduction into filming. We have the pleasure of working with like minded, passionate film makers whose enthusiasm for the project is only seconded by their professionalism and ability. With casting on the horizon, we believe that this is could be our time to make a break into the film industry. However this requires a lot of hard work and funds. Professional actors, sets and costume design are the main things which will make our short film stand out in the crowd. However these things are the most expensive.
We need your help to back this project and raise funds so that we may create something to be proud of.
By donating you will be helping us…
- Hire actors and pay for their accommodation, food and travel over the filming period.
- Create and hire professional sets and locations to put a fine finish on the scenes.
- Acquire the right costumes and props to bring the characters to life.
Any investment will be helping us to achieve our dreams. In return we are offering some exciting rewards for anyone who is willing to back the project. It’s the least we can do!
We aim to start filming in mid October into early November 2012. The film hopefully should be complete by January 2013, ready to be submitted to film festivals worldwide.
All rewards will be recieved once the film is completed in January.
Thank you very much for listening & we hope to be working with you very soon
