FrenchHoney films aims to bring the film industry to the rolling hills of Devon and showcase the incredible talent that we have to offer. We plan on starting a revolution and gathering together the best of the SouthWest, in order to make this area a place to be revered throughout the British film industry. We have previously made a short film 'Abide With Me' with is currently in the last stages of post-production, The teaser trailer can be found at

Frankie Got The Junk is a no/low budget short film that can only be made due to voluntary crew as well as many crew members being film students, this means we have the support of Plymouth College of Art, who are loaning us the equipment that we need.

We are currently nearing the very end of pre-production with a full cast, locations, finalised script, storyboards and mid February deadline.

The money we are requesting is purely to cover costumes, catering and travel for cast and crew. We are offering great rewards and the opportunity to get involved in the revolution.

So please, pledge, share and show your support!

Thank you for your time.
