BE-LONGING –A SHORT FILM
Belonging is the story of a young boy aged 9 years old who has been placed in care and is living in a foster home. Removed from violent and chaotic birth parents after a series of family breakdowns, he is torn between accepting the trust, kindness and security of his foster family and remaining 'loyal' to his birth parents who he still loves dearly. Self destruction, despair, anger, betrayal, hope and salvation are all themes within this film. The struggle to regain the childhood of this young man who has not yet experienced the innocence of youth is, unfortunately not uncommon for many of today's youth placed in care or living in broken homes. Belonging shows this boy's journey from his very first day 'in care' and charts his progress along the way.
More foster carers are needed to bridge this gap and provide safe, stable and secure homes for vulnerable children Your funds will allow for the filming and production costs of this film to be covered so that the valuable work that foster carers do is promoted and recognised by all.
Risks and challenges
The risk I face in making this short film in a short space of time is that people or locations can drop out due to various reasons. In the setting up process I am trying to have a back up plan for most things where possible. This is an important project for me because of the subject matter.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
