Why We Need You
This film has been a long time coming for us as we decided we wanted to collaborate with each other about a year ago. Now all we need is the funding! Your contribution will go towards paying for our professional actors, locations, set, props, costume, catering, travel, and much more.
Who We Are
Director- Charlie Sullivan-Jones
At the forefront of production comes our Director, Charlie Sullivan-Jones, an enthusiastic filmmaker and artist from North London. With ‘A Well Kept Secret’ being his second directorial challenge, he hopes to display a vision that resonates with the fantastic script placed in front of them. With an incredibly talented crew working alongside him, Sully aspires to prove the ability of the team through each aspect possible while creating a distinctive and moving film.
Producer- Chloe Richardson
Born and raised in Cornwall, Chloe has a background in all aspects of film making but found her passion in Producing. She has worked on many student projects but hopes to expand her repertoire after graduation. Chloe is very excited for this project due to the collaboration with the other members and is looking forward to the challenge of making a short film in just 10 weeks!
Cinematographer- Jack Nicholls
Born and bred in Edinburgh, Jack Nicholls is an aspiring cinematographer. Always working hard to get the best shot possible, this will be the fourth collaboration between him and Sully and looks to be the most exciting project thus far. Jack enjoys bringing scripts to life and believes that this particular story is something special. Along with a crew more than capable of creating something truly cinematic.
Sound- Elliot Smith
Elliot is our sound guy, and a sound guy to say the least! Having worked previously with Sully and Jack being their sound recordist and editor, he is a team player on and off set. Elliot leads a very active lifestyle working in a kitchen and surfing, when he’s not holding a boom or in the editing suites of course!
Editor- Guy Davies
Guy is our editor, the only guy for the job. He’s the new kid at Falmouth but has past experience at Westminster University. He plays Premiere Pro like Beethoven plays his fifth, editing his own projects since 2014. Out of study he enjoys reading, writing and doing whatever part time jobs that can get him some money for a Tesco meal-deal.
Art Director- Jack Scanlon
Jack Scanlon will be the production designer for ‘Well kept secret’. He specialised in producing in the past, but for this production has gone down the production design route. He is excited for this new challenge and is excited to work with a promising group and a gripping script.
Risks and challenges
The main challenge is that the first project of this scale that any of us have attempted. We are planning on getting some lush locations as well as hiring professional actors- but of course this comes with a cost! Of course there are the usual risks of being on location.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
