About

Written by Dr Who novelist Jim Mortimore and Fox Jarvis, Amyth is the story of a young woman suffering from amnesia. As she investigates her past, she finds her existence may hold the key to the future of the human race. As Aura, trapped in the Welsh island–village of Amyth, pieces together her missing memories an incredible truth is revealed, even as the possibility of an alien invasion becomes dangerously apparent.

We plan to produce "Amyth" as a feature film, however first we need to create a cinematic pilot of the film to help raise investment. The film will be an ambitious project working in liaison with various local authorities and businesses. We aim to promote strong lead female characters within the Sci-Fi genre, and also bring new inspiration for future technology.

We're a group of talented filmmakers who have worked in the film industry for over 10 years. We have worked on TV programme's and Feature Films such as:

The Lost Prince, Goodbye Mr Chips, Teachers Series 2, Agent Cody Banks 2, Mine All Mine, Hunky Dory, The Darkest Day, Da Vinci's Demons Series 2 and A Poet in New York.

Here's the trailer to our latest short film "Hello?" Which you can see in it's entirety (when complete) in our £15 and above rewards!

Whilst we have the experience and the creativity to produce this pilot, we need your support to make it cinematic quality. Our "Hello?" short film (trailer above) was produced on a little to no budget, but now we need to produce a professional pilot using a top of the range cinematic camera. Without a pilot our chances of gaining investment for the feature film are slim. Most grants and government funding require producer credits on a feature film to have access to their funding which leaves us in a 'catch-22' situation. To counter this, we plan to gain investment for the feature film through our own sources of private investors, but to do this we must provide a cinematic pilot.

Risks and challenges

The main challenge we face is confirming the dates for filming our pilot. We are aiming to go into production in November 2013, however we want to make sure we make all the right decisions with your generous donations, so this provisional date might be pushed back a couple of months.
