The film society is looking for help with funding for an indie thriller film.

A short summary of your project

We are raising as much money as possible to be able to fund our indie film project. The film is about a women who ends up in a real murder mystery game in which she is the murderer. The funds raised will be used to buy props, booking locations, helping non-university actors with transportation costs and more!

The more we are able to raise the better our film will be. 

Who are WE? 

We are Reading University Film Society. We have a passion for films, one that cannot be merely quenched by just watching films. The film society includes people from all backgrounds; from those studying Film as a degree who want to sharpen their tool-set and those who simply have a drive to create alongside their current degree. We are a team of about 20+ students, and every student will play a vital role within the films construction. 

Our story 

The story, without delving into spoilers, will follow the tale of a girl who is invited to a murder mystery party by her friend only to find out her friend is nowhere to be found. A mysterious figure dressed as a judge brings her to the room with the other players. Each player all dressed in character specific costume then attempts to deduce who murdered (within the game) the currently missing friend. Our protagonist attempts to keep up with the more experienced players but as the game goes on it is clear that things are not what they seem. Is this just a game or is this something much more? 

To be able to make this film the way we envision, we need you. With your support, we will be able to achieve so much more. Any amount you can give will make a world of difference and we will be incredibly grateful. Through your support, we will be able to make something we can be truly proud of.

By supporting this project you will be part of creating a fantastic film and helping students like us achieve our dreams.

Where will the money go? 

The money that is given to us will be used on costumes, props, booking locations and more...

The cost of producing a film is unpredictable but we can expect to encounter cost such as:

  • Costumes for the main characters including: judge's robes, a maid's outfit, an accountant's outfit, a widower's outfit and more.
  • Props for the various scenes including: fake diamonds, rope, dossiers, a fake studded cane, a fake gun, a Polaroid camera, strobe lights, and more.
  • Travel costs from getting actors to and from set.

Any funds raised above our target will help to fund costs we aren’t able to anticipate or are constantly changing. Every penny will make a difference and we hope you will be able to pledge your support. 


We have some fantastic rewards. By supporting this project, you can bag yourself a copy of the film or even come to our premiere! Have a look at what your support means to us and choose one of great rewards!
