New stretch target

With any extra money that we raise, that will endeavour to support the marketing of our film and future projects for New Tribe Pictures.


Forgotten is a new crime drama presented by the National Youth Film Academy made in association with New Tribe Pictures. With a strong team of incredibly talented creatives, we can't wait to bring our vision to your screens.


London. 1976. When a young drug addict finds himself caught up in a human trafficking scandal involving the city’s elite politicians, he discovers a strong-willed female detective and a young victim of the trade are striving to expose the government’s secret trade of young girls to wealthy party donors.


With a story based on victims of the human trafficking trade, we are taking care and being sensitive when approaching the topic, building a story trust of reliable sources to advise on narrative content. We have seen over the last couple of years that standing up for justice can actually make a change in the system and so that is the basis of our narrative. 

We will also be working alongside charities to raise awareness of human trafficking, especially amongst young girls and the effects it can have for life. Not only will you be supporting the next generation of filmmakers and actors, but you will be supporting a very charitable cause.


Our approach to the film is to tell the story through three interconnected lives of the characters caught up in Human Trafficking. With smooth, well-composed cinematography and lighting that borrows techniques from Film Noir and a colour palette from the Crime Genre, the film’s visuals will add to the construction of the seedy 1970s crime industry in London. Putting an emphasis on the audience identification with the characters will help us bring the large audience the film’s subject matter deserves. The film’s Theme is that “It takes us to speak up and shed a light on certain circumstances in order to make a change. Silence only allows the problem to persist.”


To make our film become a reality, we are launching a crowdfunding page. Our target is to raise £5000. Everything raised will go directly into the production for camera, lighting, props and set dressing to help us bring to you London in the 1970s. Creating a film during the coronavirus pandemic is going to be tough and this will use a chunk of the budget. Therefore the more you can help us, the better our film will be and the safer we will be whilst creating it.
