The relationship between the camera, our actors and their surroundings is an essential part of creating "4am" - a time of silence, stillness, and paranoia. With our new stretch target we will be able to hire a steadicam operator to give us the freedom to use our location to the fullest - with unrestricted movement around the house and the ability to adapt to our actors' spontaneous performances, hiring a steadicam operator will allow us to tell Miri and Tamara's story in the most effective way.
First stretch target
With a body horror comes the need for prosthetics, and we don't want to shy away from using them! Our new stretch target will allow us to buy all the silicone and specialist materials that will be used across four days of filming on both our actresses and give our make up artists the freedom to make the prosthetics as detailed and believable as possible for the camera.
Not only that, any additional funds raised will be kept aside until we complete the film to be spent on entry fees into British and international film festivals. After being publically screened at the BFI in July 'Hookworm' will go on a two year film festival circuit. With the average cost of submitting a short film being £22 per festival, any extra money to help us get 'Hookworm' seen is greatly appreciated!
