What the Devil is 'The Nightman Of Nevermoor' about? Well...

The Nightman of Nevermoor: The film takes place in the fictional Devon village of Nevermoor. Eleven year old Nick Neary has come to live with his estranged father after two years apart. But the village is in a dilemma; two film students have gone missing, locals claim an unknown figure has been lurking around the village at night, and an ominous self-proclaimed hunter has shown up to stalk it. As Nick and his father struggle to re-connect, they're thrown into the unravelling mystery taking place within the village. Could the Nightman indeed be an otherworldly creature? Can anyone trust the hunter? Is it all an elaborate hoax? And, perhaps more importantly, will anyone show up for the village fete?

Who are you guys anyway?

We are creative team made up of Producer/Director, Chris Thomas {The Water's Edge}  and producing team Richard Standen (Also writer) & Tom Stanley {The Beach House} {Status}, Daniel Haslam {Eight Limbs Two Heads}. We are nice people.

The film has been in the making since Spring 2012 when Chris asked Richard to deliver a script on an idea he'd had. The story has changed in leaps and bounds from being set in surburban London to the depths of rural Devon. The journey the script has gone through has been wholly progressive and we're now raring to go out and get this film made so we can show you all!

The Impact...

Funding The Nightman of Nevermoor is a great opportunity to support a close team of talented, experienced and above all passionate filmmakers, in what will be a vital building block in the careers of all involved.

Our crew on "The Water's Edge" (2011). Dinorwic, North Wales.

The film will be shot in rural Devon, in the South West of England, a decision that has not only helped enrich the visuals of the film due to Devon’s rich and colourful fairytale landscape, but one that will help boost the cultural and artistic status of the area, in order to aid the funding and development of other potential Devon-based projects in the future.

As always, it is important to remember that NO CAST OR CREW MEMBERS WILL PROFIT FROM ANY DONATIONS MADE THROUGH THIS CAMPAIGNAll money received will go directly to the film.

Where's my dollar going?

Among a multitude of exciting things (and some not so exciting), our key fundraising concerns are;

Equipment (up to £1000) – Although we are able to source some equipment for free between us, we will need to hire more specialised equipment, which will add to the production value of the film. 

Travel & Accommodation (A minimum £600) – Our handpicked crew is travelling to us from all around the UK, and as well as getting them here, we will need enough vehicle space, therefore fuel, for 18 crew members and actors to get to and from the location each day.

Art Department (Around £200) – Additional props and production design are needed to make each location come to life.

Post-Production (Around £200) – The whole process, from offline and online editing to our sound sync and mix.

The project will also be partially self funded by the crew to bring up the total budget. We're literally emptying our pockets and hanging up the dream of a new pair of jeans so we can get this film made.

Visuals:

Visually, the film will be deeply beautiful without trying too hard. Setting the story in an isolated locations allows us to incorporate some really great atmosphere and more cinematic beauty.

Each scene will encapsulate that idyllic spirit of a Devonshire village with our own unique Nightman twist. Stunning and wide, the rural landscape can really give the film a cinematic scale that will please your eyes!

Inspiration:

Chris, Richard and the whole crew have always been big fans of Spielberg's early work and the films by Amblin Entertainment. We've drawn a lot of inspiration from these films in the creation of The Nightman of Nevermoor.

We love the idea that these types stories have found huge audiences from kids to adults over the last four decades and we (somewhat ambitously) want Nightman to do the same. This is where it begins.

Many great films and directors have inspired the Nightman of Nevermoor so far.

As you can see from the above collage there is a very distinct and classic style of film-making that we are going to bring to the film. Nightman will every bit be a film with a classic cinematic feel but with our own British imprint too.

Nightman FAQ:

What is the Nightman? 

We can't tell you, sorry!

Can I get more than one Perk? 

Oh yes! And also you'd receive our unrequainted eternal love. Once the campaign is finshed we will contact you to manage all your goodies.

What if I just want to donate and I'm not bothered about the perks?

What happens if you don't hit £2000 goal?

Can you keep getting donations even if you've made the target?

Yes, yes and triple yes! If we hit our target donations you will still be able to donate more! All contributions will just increase the possiblities for the project, from equipment upgrades, maybe something more than cheese and cucumber sandwhiches and of course those costly festival entry fees!

Risks and challenges

Unfortunately everything can't always be in our control and with making films there are lots of stages that rely on many different aspects, from people to the weather.

Although we have set a target date for shooting and also a delivery date for completion of the film we hope everyone understands that unforseen circumstances could cause the dates of filming and delivery to change. However we are a tough, dedicated crew that survived lashings of rain while filming in the mountains of North Wales so we will try our damnded hardest to make sure it all goes to schedule!

Similarly, depending on the interest & demand, delivery times for the perks may be affected. We will obviously endeavour to deliver every perk as quickly as we can and will keep you up to date with any changes in delivery. Your patience will be very much appreciated.
