Unfortunately this project was not successful.

I am creating a 3-minute heist film for the Rode Reel 2021 competition: https://myrodereel.com.

by Jackie Jackson in London, Greater London, United Kingdom

I'm a recent film graduate, with dreams of completing my masters degree in filmmaking at New York Film Academy in LA, California. Of course in order to do this, I need to either win the lottery, get a scholarship, make a deal with the devil, or find some other (legal) way to get £90k. 

Along comes Rode Reel, the jaw-dropping short film competition that offers an array of $10k prizes, and a grand prize of $250k to the judges favourite!! I thus single-handedly wrote a 3 minute (over-ambitious) short heist film and have found the perfect location, and the perfect actors. 

The only issue is, as always, financing the project. In order to save money for it, I have resorted to working two jobs, including 50+ hours a week at McDonalds, and an online writer job, as well as singing up to multiple credit cards. Yet, I am still falling short. If you would be so kind to donate anything, you would be included in the credit, BTS video and if the film wins one of the prizes, I would love nothing more than to pay back your investment and then some! Thank you in advance for you contribution in helping me achieve my dreams.
