When an agoraphobic gets his post delivered by a socially anxious post-woman, a strange and quirky date occurs through the letterbox..

 

 TOM (Rory Fleck Byrne) lives on his phone. Unable to leave the house (even to do his shopping) he seeks escape through social media and dating apps. But there is a huge problem - whenever a girl asks to meet him he comes up against his biggest nemesis; the front door... How will he ever meet someone if he cant leave the house?

But when a post woman (Charlie Murphy) accidentally posts a package into his 'package', they embark on a curious and strange exchange through the letterbox. A couple of kit-kats and a few knock knock jokes later, these two underdogs may have just found that special someone they've been looking for... but will Tom ever be able to leave the house?  

We have just completed this lovely little short and very excited to share it with people around the world. The best way for us to reach a wide audience is to get it to as many great film festivals as possible.  And to achieve that we need YOU! 

We are really proud of this film and think it has the potential to make a lot of people laugh and bring a tear to quite a few eyes... But the cost to enter film festivals (plus postage and packaging) can add up. As the film was self-funded we have no more pennies in our piggy bank... So we are sending out a plea for even the tiniest of donations. Every little helps (it really does!) and we can't do this without you.

We're a director and actor duo whose previous short films (Untitled Blues and Bodies) have played at many BAFTA and OSCAR qualifying festivals including Encounters, Royal Television Society, Palm Springs, Galway Film Fleadh and Byron Bay. On the long-grueling-backbreaking-soulcrushing-journey of developing our first feature film, we decided to take a short break... And make a short film! Working alongside our brilliant crew and collaborators, we bring you INBOX. A film about awkward people, made by awkward people.

Risks and challenges

The good news is the film is already made! So there is no risk that the film will not be made. But entering a festival does not necessarily mean we will be selected for it. Taste in film is subjective and there are many external factors that are out of our control such as, programming time, the program themes and personal taste! However, with a runtime of 7mins, a compelling story with universal appeal and a great balance between comedy and depth, we feel confident that we have created a very strong festival contender.

As you may know - Kickstarter is all or nothing. If we don't reach our target then we don't get a single penny. Which is why you can also help us getting the word out there by sharing this page on social media. If we don't reach our target then the money you donate will stay in your bank account!
