  • Thanks so much for all your support! Your kind donations will go towards making the film the best possible. We will do this by hiring professional actors and actresses and putting any extra money towards production design. 

Any extra money will be donated to The Trussell Trust. The Trussell Trust is a charity that aims to end hunger and poverty in the UK. 

The Trussell Trust’s has over 420 foodbanks operating across the UK which supply emergency food and support for people in need. We have been working closely with our local food bank to ensure that our film is realistic.


 

'I Don't Know, Something Creative' follows Pernille, a young woman who has just graduated from university. Pernille has been sheltered all her life, always having financial support from her father. She was guided through her education without asking herself if it was actually what she wanted which led her to a degree that she wasn't interested in.

Pernille is lost and doesn't know what to do. Due to her protected upbringing, she didn't have much freedom and doesn't have any major interests. Now, Pernille volunteers at a local food bank in her hometown, a job that her father nobly got for her. Pernille grows bored and restless as all that she wants to do is to take her life into her own hands. She wants to be free from her father's control and have some fulfilment in her life. 

Will Pernille take the leap into the unknown?

This story is about an overlooked part in life that every single person will go through at some point. Young people are told at such a young age that they must know what they want to be and what they want to do when they finish school. When you finish compulsory education some people are left with a feeling of being lost or confused as to what to do next. Our film aims to show that experiencing this 'in-between' stage in your life is ok. You don't just have to do whatever your parents tell you to. You can take your life into your own hands and be happy.1542045002_Screen%20Shot%202018-11-12%20

For the visuals of the film, we don't just want to make it 'look good', but we want to help the director tell the story. We have looked at works by Inbal Weinberg, Sam Lisenco and Paul Graham to gain an understanding of their craft, to bring it into this project.

Most of the film is set in a food bank. Food banks are centers that provide emergency food for people in need. They are run by a non-profit organisation and all the food they give away is donated to them. For our production, we are creating our own food bank from scratch and aim to depict a realistic environment and setting for our characters.

We are asking for the bare minimum as to what is needed to fulfil the project in the way we want. We want to put most of the money into what you will see on the screen. We have a vision for the look of the food bank, the costumes of all the characters and the cinematography. We also want to invest some of the money towards bringing professional actors onto the film. By pledging money to our crowdfunding page you are helping this film reach its potential. Help us make this film we so badly want to make!

We really appreciate every single pledge given to this film. Your pledge shows us that you have faith in our project, that you have faith in us and that also you want to see this film come true in the best way possible.

Thank you!

Hollie has a keen interest in how film can portray a mood or feeling, encapsulating stories to their fullest potential. Her enthusiasm for the nitty gritty lifelike story that is 'I Don’t Know, Something Creative' is why we’re so excited to have her on our team. Capitalising upon opportunities such as to work with a lot of handheld camerawork and natural lighting, one juxtaposing the other, giving the impression that our protagonist lives within a frantic and disorganised world that is sympathetic to those unsure of their path in life.
