OFFWORLD - British Scifi feature film

£10,054

240

We're a pair of geeks, (just like you, right?) who have always wanted to get a bunch of like-minded people together to make a sci-fi film.

We grew up with the classics - 2001, Planet Of The Apes, Star Wars, Alien, Blade Runner, Mad Max - and everything else since then, up to the epics of today.

We also love the process of making a film - the designs, scripting, acting, CGI, models, makeup and sound effects.

Now is the time. We've secured a great cast and some very talented people in the crew, all of whom are doing this for free. But we need this kickstarter to succeed so that we can pay for things like costumes, on-set food, transport costs, post-production and sound mix - things that will make the film so much better. (starving actors rarely give their best!).

We've crafted what we think is a great survival drama story around readily available locations and situations, so it's not going to cost millions. But the more we can raise, the more impressive it'll be in the end. Help us, Kickstarter Backers... you're our only hope!

OFFWORLD is a feature length, live action sci-fi thriller. It tells the story of a group of people en route to a new planet, which the Human Race is in the early stages of colonising. Their ship suffers system failures and they end up crashing, hundreds of kilometres from their settlement. Many have died and food/water are scarce.Their cargo of 200 colonists in cryogenic stasis are mostly intact, but they can't be safely unfrozen, so the survivors have three days at best to reach the settlement in order to ensure the survival of the 200.The group have to deal with illnesses, alien threat, interpersonal conflicts, power struggles, starvation and more as they make their journey.

Risks and challenges

We know that we're being very ambitious. But we thought, "Why film another ten-minute short that'll be forgotten in a month? Let's do a feature that we can all be proud of?" With that in mind, we decided to go for it.

90% of this film will be shot outdoors on location. So the usual risks are weather, availability & health of cast, etc. As you'd imagine.

We'll make this film, no matter how long it takes. But we want to make the production easier to pull off, and make it look and sound good. This is where you guys come in.

Asking a cast and crew to work for free is a big ask. but everyone involved is 100% up for making a great film! Join us!
