About

Starring Todd Carty and Tony Clarkin, The Drive will explore the themes of life and the past via a personal conversation between a father and his son, facing an uncomfortable truth, with an estimated running time of 10 minutes.

It became obvious that, although our first short was accepted into several festivals, the lack of professional equipment led to lower production values than we were aiming for. We now, with the confidence we have received from the success of Reminiscence, wish to move forward, and create a more ambitious and professional project. To this end, we need the economic support to acquire the filmmaking equipment that we will need to make this film, The Drive, the best it can possibly be.

We need £3500 to hire a high quality camera, lights, sound equipment, such as lapel mics, as well as colour grading and music. As two young filmmakers, we have the ambition and creativity to create a moving piece and expand on what we have already learned, but we need your help to bring this project to life.

 We are well into the pre-production stage of "The Drive" and have designed a teaser poster. We need your help to get filming and make our vision a reality. We have also done a location scout at the coast of the South of England. You can also see the photos from the trip below.

Risks and challenges

Just like with any project, there will be occasional setbacks that must be overcome. We will be somewhat reliant on the weather conditions, but we have planned for all eventualities.

We are passionate about this film, and we can promise that it will be completed, with your support.
