New stretch target

The stretch target of an extra £300 - bringing the total to £600 - would allow us to invest more in certain kit that will allow us to improve the film even further. It will also be used heavily in post-production, as well as used to support the film on the festival circuit after its release. 


The Firm is a brand new short film from Director Maxwell Morrison produced in association with Filtography Productions. Featuring an incredibly talented cast: Adam Probets, David Cross and Kris Swinbank. Shot in gritty, urban locations with the help of an extremely capable crew of filmmakers; The Firm will not disappoint.


The Firm follows the story of a small time criminal defence lawyer - 'Charles Portland' (Kris Swinbank) - and his alleged betrayal of one of his most notorious clients - 'Jake Johnson' (Adam Probets). 

When dangerous criminal Jake Johnson becomes suspicious of his lawyers movements behind his back, he takes matters into his own hands. Through roping in a friend - 'Mark Phillips' (David Cross) - to help him kidnap the lawyer and find out the truth...things take an unexpected turn. 

Betrayal, disloyalty and deception. But who is telling the truth?

A full budget for investors wishing to donate over £100 is available for a full breakdown of what exactly the funds will go towards, please use the contact details on the page to enquire.

But most importantly, we really need your help to make this film a reality. To push the boundaries of the genre, and to achieve something spectacular which makes for enjoyable and nail-biting viewing for all.
