What Next?

Dear Supporters, 

Still on cloud 9 after we reached just over our target. What an amazing achievement! 

Please watch out for the survey to be sent making sure we have all the correct contact details to send your rewards, including correct name spellings for Thank You credits, email addresses to send your digital copy of the film, or your home address for signed copies, and framed posters, whichever is applicable.

I'd like to update you all with the production plans over the next coming months. 

With this funding, we will continue filming, which will mainly be based in London until November. Without spoiling the film, there is a very exciting scene happening then, which we hope be the last scene in the film. We will then begin the long editing process, which will last around 3 months give or take a little. If all goes to plan, we are aiming for completion of the film by early Spring 2017. We will then submit the film to international film festivals, with the aim of securing a distribution deal through the film festival market. 

We are still applying for further funding from broadcasters, foundations and private investors to meet our stretch goals. We would be grateful for any introductions in these areas, so do please get in touch. I can always be contacted through my website:

We are so excited to complete and share the final film with you. 

Huge thanks and best wishes, 
Joe and the Team
