Why do we need your help?

The script for the film is fabulous and we have a fabulous cast and crew, who want to see this film get made. Not only because of its great comical effect and Britishness, but because we want to actively promote women in the art of filmmaking! And, what better way to do that than to make a story about a group of women on one of the most British places in the UK? Yorkshire!

We are sending this to festivals as well! Aiming for the best of the British.

Here is the wheel of fortune! Well, it's a pie actually... mmm... pie (what's your favourite?)

How will we use this pie chart, and the money raised to help us?

We have to buy all the food for our cast and crew, as it is going to be cold up on the Moors at the end of November! (Hopefully, not snowing!)

We also need to rent a place for them to stay!

We need to rent some additional kit, inclusive of lighting for our outdoor night scene in the woods (spooky!)

Our cast and crew are coming from all over the country to the spot in the middle of nowhere, in order for us to film this!

We need to insure everyone and everything, as everyones lives matter!

And, festivals! We want to send this film to as many British festivals as is going to be possible.

Our perks are... awesome!

An example of our great t-shirts. Comes in both a 'women's fit' (white) or standard black.

Our other perks are available to look at too. We've tried to make our perks small, but memorable and something worth having because, you never know, this could be the next big comedy short that'll come out of Yorkshire!

Follow us on all the right things.
