A short fiction film set in the modern day where a married couple face a hard time going through the loss of their son.

by Vanesa Mendelyte in London, England, United Kingdom

OUR IDEA

A fiction film set in the modern day where a family goes through a rough patch in their lives. 

The father being the one who is always working and tired to play with his 7 year old son Thomas. It is seen how day by day the father is slowly loosing it. Not just mentally but physically as well.  We often see him interact with his son however he never plays with him. Until one day he gets home and Thomas isn't waiting for him at the door like he usually does. Watch this space to find out where the story goes next when the film is released! 

TRAVEL

We are lucky to be in the position of being able to get the equipment needed for this film from our university. As you can imagine, film equipment is large and extremely heavy, therefore transporting this equipment to and from locations can be difficult. 

With your donations, we will be able to get appropriate transport for the equipment, and our amazing cast and crew.

CATERING 

In order to keep our cast and crew happy and healthy with lots of energy, we need to make sure everyone is fed and watered. Your money will go towards this, helping us work through the long hours. 

DISTRIBUTION

As we all know, the film making process is not over once the film has been shot and edited, and we want to make sure your donations go a long way towards this project. We would like to submit our short film to a film festival which requires a submission fee. 

Thank you to everyone who took their time to read this we appreciate it! Hopefully you will love our story, any questions can always be answered. Message me if you would like to see the script.
