We are 3rd year students currently studying at Falmouth University.
We have a big project in mind that will consist of a collaboration between the Television, Acting and Photography courses at the university.
We want to take our third-year film 'A Tale of Two Heroes: Pinky Strikes Back, a medieval comedy/drama, to the next level in terms of shooting locations.
We want to film a sequence in The Big Apple, the city that never sleeps, New York!
First off, all funding from this Crowdfunder will be going to charity, so we're trying to raise as much money as possible.
We had some issues with one of our Head of Departments, which set us back drastically in the pre-production for this project.
However, we have acted accordingly by replacing the H.O.D and now our team is the best it possibly can be.
The entire crew for this project has been working tirelessly to catch up on pre-production by organising eight different shoot dates in the UK which will commence on 5th February 2020 and wrap on the 16th February 2020.
But on the 30th January, we started the preparation for New York with a team of talented individuals.
Our Executive Producer has gained contacts in New York City from his time working as a video counsellor at the summer camp ‘French Woods: Festival of the Performing Arts’ during the summer of 2019.
We have figured out all the expenses and have a solid plan on how to pay for it all. So 100% of all funding from this Crowdfunder will be going to charity.
We have organised accommodation for the crew in the heart of NYC for easy access for where we intend to film. With these big plans happening in such a small space of time, the head honcho’s at Falmouth University want us to succeed!
They will be supporting us any way they can.
As a crew we are trying everything possible to maximise our chances of getting this support and raising as much money as we can.
We have covered all expenses for ourselves to go to New York City, including flights, accommodation and more.
We would love your help in raising money for our selected charities. We are going to keep one charity local and raise money for Skate Fete.
This charity is raising money towards building a skate park in Falmouth because it currently doesn’t have one and it would benefit a lot of people.
From those in the younger generation to those with a passion for skating, overall helping make a more active and healthy lifestyle for the people in Cornwall.
We have also decided to donate to a few select hospitals' Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU).
We want to help give the parents a more comfortable place to stay while at these wards, as it’s such an awful time for them, just waiting and watching their babies fight for their lives.
Anything you can do to help would be amazing, whether that be donating to our cause or sharing our Crowdfunder link around wherever you can.
We appreciate each and everyone of you and we believe if we can come together in this collaboration between the United Kingdom and the United States and everywhere in-between. We can make this world a better place.
So we'll see you in New York, on our ambitious mission to raise money for charity.
