We plan to create a 10 minute unpredictable and unnerving film. Exploring the unspoken truth in reality and the unpredictability of people. The real thing we would like people to think about is the extent that one would go too, to keep them-self safe and free.
We Need You!
The pre-production is already underway but to make the best version of this film, we need your help!
Clay heavily relies on its costume design, props, locations and actors, naturally for any ambitious film like this a budget must be set. Anything you can give will be greatly appreciated. Every donation helps turn our idea into a reality, however much!
Below you will see an arrangement of images, colours and compositions that project the particular style and concept we aim to evoke.
We are looking to start filming in early/mid January, the shoot will be approximately spread across 7 full days.
Here you will see the expenditures. Any money that is left over from the shoot will be put towards marketing the finished film.
