An Arts project Farnham, Surrey

My Coloured Sweetheart

A group of second year film students trying to raise some extra money to create our latest project.

New stretch target

With the extra money we raise we hope to gain more extras, paying for their travel and providing food. We also would invest an extra make up artist so it wouldn't be too much work for one person! 

We are a group of second year Film Production students, studying at University for the Creative Arts. For our latest project we are making a 1940's film based on an African American GI who has come over to England with the rest of his troop to help the British army during the war. Our film is focuses on the racial tension surrounding a relationship between a white British woman and an African American GI.  Our script is being tweaked as we research and plan for the film however due to the period we have set the film in, our production will cost a lot of money; getting costumes that are appropriate and convincing, set design to create the right atmosphere and the right number of actors our film. Each member of the group will be putting in £50 each which will give us £500 in total, however due to costly set design, we are hoping to raise an extra £300 for our film. We are so passionate about this idea and would love to see it be made.
