Your story

We are a group of young enthusiastic filmmakers, really excited to work on this film. This is the first time some of us can get a taste of what it is like in the film industry, which is great for learning and to see where our skills and passions lie. We are determined to make this a good quality film whist keeping it on a decent budget. All ideas were thought up by us and we can't wait to showcase all our hard work to you. We do need your help though. It's a big project and any donations will help us go a long way.

Where will the money go?

Most of the money will go towards makeup, costumes and props as our location is very easy to get to. We would also like to give some money to the actors and be able to provide them with food and drinks, especially as we will be filming in quite a cold climate, so would like to keep the actors comfortable. Finally, we'd also love to put some into rewards for you! your donations will mean a lot so we would love to send rewards.

  • Make- up and costumes: £60
  • Props and set Designs: £30
  • Catering: £40
  • Rewards: £100
  • Actors pay: £100 
  • Other: £70
