'Looking At A Stranger' (working title) is the third short film by filmmaking partners Robin Hudson and Stuart Albone as Del Vecchio Productions.
About The Film
After a car accident Martin awakes in a dissociative fugue where his memories are jumbled and he feels a lack of direction in his life. Emily had moved from Eastern Europe to be with Martin, the love of her life, however he no longer remembers who she is. Worse, he believes he is still in love with his ex, Catherine.
How can Emily cope with feeling isolated in a city a long way from home when the only thing keeping her there is a man who no longer believes they are together? What must Martin do to try to remember his life before the accident.
The film is to be shot in April 2016 and is based on a script from Robin Hudson and Stuart Albone. It will be shot in location in the UK (London and Sussex) and in Sweden (Stockholm).
As we developed 'Looking At A Stranger' we realised that we would require some exceptional acting talent to realise the full potential of this project. We have already cast our two principal actors and are delighted to have two of the most exciting international up and coming actors in Anjela Nedyalkova (as Emily) and Christian Hillborg (as Martin).
Anjela is best known for the Bulgarian film 'Ave' and the Dutch Production of 'The Paradise Suite'
Christian is best known for his role in the Danish-Swedish production of 'The Bridge' as well as the James Caan starring feature film 'The Throwaways'.
Del Vecchio Productions
In 2010 Robin Hudson and Stuart Albone go together under the umbrella of Del Vecchio Productions in order to create short films together. We have previously made the David Lynch inspired short film AnnA, which received a cinema screening at the UK Twin Peaks Festival and Under The Sycamore, a tribute to Twin Peaks which imagines what happened when a young David Lynch met Laura Palmer.
Whilst the budget for 'Looking At A Stranger' is modest in filmmaking terms to realise our ambitions will take more than we can realistically afford ourselves. We are self funding 50% of the project but would like to fully realise the potential of our project. All the money raised here will go towards production and post-production costs: locations, acting talent, props, expenses, editing etc.
Any assistance you can give us will be massively appreciated and we look forward to sharing, Looking At A Stranger, with you once complete (estimated August 2016).
Risks and challenges
We work with a small crew which allows us to keep control over most things that happen on set, however, as with any production there are always unexpected issues. This is half the fun and challenge of making a film and we like to keep a flexible approach to deal with these issues as they arise.
The major risk on this project is that we have limited time with our actors due to their other commitments. However, we have a schedule planned that will make the best use of their time and talent and there is some contingency built in if required.
We are also used to working with small budgets and will ensure that not a penny is wasted, after all there will be a large amount of our own funds involved as well.
We will look after all the team well during the shoot, and put time into post production to create a strong sound and vision for the final film.
Everyone involved in the film is committed to fully realising the potential in the story.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
