Location Set-Dress and Costume Design:

Pushing our initial budget will enhance the production value of the entire film. Set-dress and costume design will benefit so much as we will be able to make for a more immersive film and expand the creative range of the project.


More money means we can bring in a higher calibre of acting and a whole new level of performance to the screen. We can also make sure that the whole cast and crew are properly catered for with all transport and accommodation costs covered. This extra bit will mean we don't have to cut any corners to save money.

Entry into festival Circuits:

The extra money will go into the marketing and distribution of our film. By allowing us to enter the film into film festivals at both a national and international level, will really boost the publicity of our film and reach a larger audience. 


'A Future Where No One Remembers You' is a film that explores the relationship between two boys, James and Tom who promise that if they ever invent time-travel, they will go back to that very time and place to prove it to themselves. James inventing the time machine ten years on leads him to reflect on the friendship he once had with Tom and inadvertently meeting his sister who's died since. We want this film to be a very grounded sci-fi that really highlights the drama of the characters with time travel as a narrative tool. 


The key theme of this film is a reflection on relationships; the priorities that some take over others and the regret that comes from not putting enough effort into some. It is something that lends so well to the time travel genre but seems to be overlooked. This is an ambitious project but one we all feel will prove to be a really great end result and all that is stopping us from making it is the money.

Brother-sister relationships are vastly under-represented in films and the dynamic this presents. We wanted this film to focus on the missed opportunity James had with his sister and the regret he carries. Putting friends before family or one relationship over another is something so relatable for all of us and we want to really highlight in this film, to help people realise where their priorities should lie and hopefully speak to as many people watching it as possible.

A prominent visual style is going to be the use of muted colours and tungsten lighting, with largely monochromatic frames, this will give the film quite an intricate look and highlight the introverted, isolated nature of our protagonist, James. A lot of practical lighting in the frame will be used with teal accents accentuating production design. Clear, digital footage will be used for scenes set in the future and a simulated film stock look will identify the scenes set in the past. We want the style of this film to be really interesting and intriguing so a lot of work is currently going into how we can make that happen.

Production Design is going to be a huge aspect of this film and we want to create some really great props as well as a distinctive time machine. We will be constructing a cluttered garage full of inventions to really enrich the scenes. The time machine will take inspiration from retro and steampunk designs with modern technology holding it all together, we want to make the device something original and impressive. We have tested some designs and started thinking through how it will all fit together as a final cohesive look.

This money will help us so much! With such an ambitious project, it will likely make or break the end result. The funds will be split between various departments and stages of the production process. We have carefully designed the budget to ensure that every penny will be put to its best use. We want to get some great locations and fund the casting of professional actors travelling down from London. A lot of the money will also go on the production design (we have a whole time machine to build!). If we can hit our goal we will be able to pay for all this as well as catering cast and crew on the day and the endless other small costs such as transport.


We understand not everyone has the means to give money to the film. But every like, comment, share is crucial to the project's success and we really appreciate your support in whatever form. You can find us on Facebook and Instagram. By spreading the word you are helping us make this a reality.
