A Tim Burton styled film about Mr. Bellpond, who never leaves his house, until he gets a letter with info about his long lost wife.
Mr. Bellpond's Masterpiece is a wonderful short film about the themes of hope, belief, and faith.
Mr. Bellpond, a successful playwright, locks himself away for 23.7 years after the dissapearence of his wife until he gets a mysterious letter claiming to have new information about his wife. In exchange for this information, Mr. Bellpond must write a new musical theater play within 3 weeks.
With your help we are looking to raise money to pay for our actors and production design. We have been blessed to find a wonderful old house to use for Mr. Bellpond's home but it needs some work. This money would help buy furniture and help to dress the home so it looks like Mr. Bellpond has been living there. Our Production design team have some wonderful ideas but it takes money to make a proper film set.
Our crew is made up of only film students and we are bursting with talent. Our Director of Photography, Scott Winn, is an amazing artist. Check out his reel on his web site. http://www.scottdavidwinn.com/film.htm
The Director, A. Todd Smith, has been active in commercials in the past and this project will be his senior capstone before graduating in the summer.
Thank you for your support!! We hope you love our finished short film.
