Due to lack of funding I am raising money to pay for my dream course in Model Making at the National Film and Television School.

 New stretch target

The total tuition fee is £9500 however the first instalment is £3000 and once I can reach that I am closer to my target. Thank you 

Hi everyone!

My name is Aga and I would love to get some help from you. .

I have been accepted into the Postgraduate Diploma in Model Making for Animation at the National Film and Television School. Very few people in the country are accepted on to this course, so I was gobsmacked and honoured to be offered a place. However, the funding for this fell through. Student Loans do not offer funding for this particular course and I must cover the £9,500 tuition fee by the 30/08/2020.

I have worked hard to get to this point. It has come as a devastating blow to lose the main source of my funding at the last hurdle. I come from a working-class background, my family are not in a position to help me. 

There is a lack of gender and diversity within the Film and Television industry especially behind the scenes. I have been given a chance that could be my breakthrough into the industry, get more women into this predominantly male environment, and show that people coming from the underrepresented groups with no financial support can break the cycle instead of missing out on the opportunities.

The National Film and Television School have seen a spark of talent in me. I want to be proof that people from a less privileged background like me can fulfil their dreams and be able to achieve something in life based on their talent. 

Any amount offered would be one step closer to hitting the target and would be greatly appreciated. If I achieve my goal, I hope I will be able to bring amazing art and craft for your entertainment. It will also teach and familiarise me with the necessary equipment and tools to grow my Aga Claymate business. I will be able to improve my technique, and raise my modelling standards and create a bigger variety of products. 

Hopefully one day you will see my name in the end credits of the next ‘Isle of Dogs’ or ‘Shaun the Sheep’ movie. 

I have included few examples of my creations but if you would like to see more please visit my website:
