  • What is Letters from Space?

After Ash's idol and older brother David is sent on 'a mission to space', she only hears from him through written letters which fizzle out as she grows up.

Now packing for University, Ash receives another letter from her brother, forcing her to revisit memories, childlike fantasies and the tragic reason why he left.

  • A Personal Film


Letters from Space is a film about our childhood memories. My childhood memories are fragments that play like fantastical films from the eyes of a child. Memories are time-travel, often triggered by an object/room/person that you haven't seen in years. We consist of memories -both happy and sad - and without them we are no longer who we are. When Ash reads the letter from her brother, she travels back in time to discover what her relationship with David was, why it disappeared, and whether they can be close again.

I want to make this film because of how personal it is. I am an older brother, often feeling like I have abandoned my siblings as my life gets in the way. This was particularly true of  my younger brother who passed away in October 2022 - and as such remembering my childhood is difficult - as if the Tardis is broken. This film will have a connection with its audience because it taps into something we all feel as time travellers.

  • Why in Birmingham? 

Birmingham is a city that is consistently overlooked within the film and tv industry, yet the brilliant artists residing within have welcomed the team with open arms. The UK’s second city, we want to make a film which shows Birmigham at its best; an industrial city with daring architecture and pockets of natural beauty, with it’s parks, hills and reservoirs hidden away. This is why we aim to film our exteriors at Barr Beacon, a picturesque open space with the city skyline in the background. 

  • Where will the money will go?


We are asking for £3500 to help fund Letters from Space. This will aim to cover Cast and Crew expenses, camera hire, costumes, props, locations and post-production. Please find a breakdown of the costs below:
