LAIRDS, what is it about?
“Lairds” follows two individuals, Nick and Pinch, who’s friendship undergoes significant change due to the discovery of two strange items of an unknown origin. The hierarchy in their relationship is suddenly restructured as they find themselves equally matched in both intelligence and physical ability. Nick, usually the leader, full of bravado, desperately struggles with this new dynamic that is created. While Pinch, usually the sidekick at best, relishes their new found abilities and equal standing in the relationship. We follow the two throughout the story as the friendship stains under the pressure, the cracks soon begin to emerge. Expect some colourful language.
WHERE IS MY MONEY GOING?
In order to best achieve our original vision, we want the production values to be as high as possible. As such, we have already put in around 2/3 of the budget ourselves and the production has already commenced, but we need your help to get us over the finish line! The money will be spent on the likes of transport, further set design, costumes, makeup and props in order to enrich the story. We also have a composer that will be creating an original score. Investment has already been made in the equipment we need, and we are doing everything we can to keep costs to an absolute minimum, but there are some costs that are unavoidable. Of course, any money that we raise over our target goal will be put entirely towards further raising our production values; ensuring no penny goes to waste!
WHO ARE WE?
We are all final year students of the University of Sunderland, and have all worked with each other on projects in the past so we know how to make a great team.

KICKSTARTER IS AN ALL OR NOTHING ENDEAVOUR
We have 30 days to raise our target of £500, but if that doesn't happen then we don’t receive anything (and of course, you won’t be charged). We need all your help to ensure that we can make this production as successful as possible. If you are able to donate, and be part of something special, then thankyou! If not, you can still help us by sharing this Kickstarter project with someone else who might be interested. Because, I promise you, that is just as valuable.
If you have any further questions, feel free to drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Risks and challenges
Risks and challenges
In order to best avoid potential risks and challenges, we will have back-up locations, equipment, actors and crew members, ensuring that none of the budget goes to waste. We have also scheduled in advance plenty of time to conduct reshoots if necessary, and will be continually backing up all footage on several hard drives to ensure nothing can be lost. All of these contingency plans, coupled with the added motivation of creating a project that has been backed by members of the public, will ensure that the cast and crew are all committed to creating a film with minimal risks and challenges.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
