Contenders has already received great interest from leading Arts professionals in the UK industry including from the BBC.
We are extremely fortunate to have some exciting emerging artists involved with creating the film and though many are gifting their time and expertise - we need your help to cover location, equipment and the art department costs! The 10,000 we raise will help towards the production and post-production of Contenders.
Two young women in Britain, River and Theo, opt in to undercover trials taking place for Point B.
Point B is a scheme destined for the masses in years to come. Those selected are the vulnerable of society needing a break from life; the sufferers of mental, physical and financial pressure - the contenders.
Arriving at an isolated location, neither know what consequences they may face by agreeing to participate.
Risks and challenges
The biggest risk may lay in the fact this a debut film for me as a writer and producer.
However, with fantastic mentors who have worked under the BBC and Amazon, combined with support within United Agents - Contenders has very strong support and guidance!
The story is ambitious and we are working to introduce the idea as efficiently and effectively as we can in a short film format while introducing the characters River and Theo and Point B.
The actors on board the project are all professionally trained and the crew and directors have worked on established and fast paced projects ( to be announced through the campaign) with extensive experience.
Scheduling is also a risk on this project, with high demand outside this project for the people on board. We have chosen to work to a tight production schedule agreed by the team in a period of the year with less demand from the industry.
We have worked and re-worked the budget to ensure we can make this film on the total public and private backing raised with a 5% contingency aside for unexpected costs that may arise .
We will also have comprehensive production insurance to cover the fairly high-risk period shooting in Scotland.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
