We're a small production company based in the UK trying to make our first Independent Film "Shrapnel"
The first thing I should probably tell you is.. Where your money is going! We're a small production company based in th UK trying to make our first film "Shrapnel" - A Shane Meadows-esque Gritty British drama / thriller / Horror revolving around the main protagonist, Charlie, who has his flat taken over by two Hit-men, seeking refuge and evading their Boss after a botched job, but things take an even more sinister turn when the two men realise that Charlie is involved in the production of underground "snuff" films, and how a series of coincidental events set the wheels in motion of a nightmarish encounter with the crazed killer, in a pulp fiction-style montage of stories.
But where exactly is your money going? Lights, camera and sound! Yep, thats it! I've been personally saving up for bout 8 months now so almost Everything else is covered and the cast and crew are raring to and start shooting ASAP (Around September).
Everybody involved can see this is going to be a game changer in British Cinema, and it has real potential with a solid screenplay and fantastic Actors including the terrifyingly intense Pete Walsh.
We really just need to set the wheels in motion for this production because we know it has huge potential, and for any cinema lovers or film buffs, pledging to this film, you would always know that you started the career of a life long aspiring film-maker.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The main challenge is getting everybody on set for that first day of shooting. There has been a lot of Favour asking and everybody involved is working for free, so working out a schedule where the cast and crew can all be on location or on set for the 2 weeks we are going to shoot, but once we have all the necessary equipment (lights, camera rigs etc) We know that we can give a definite date and make sure everything runs smoothly. Right now everybody is on standby. You should also note that the exact date of shooting and therefore we cannot guarantee the Date of Any Rewards to all who pledge, but If funding is achieved, editing will finish around December and any rewards should be around February.
