COME TO THE PREMIERE IN LONDON ON WEDNESDAY 11th SEPTEMBER!!

WHAT'S GOING ON HERE? YOU'VE ALREADY MADE THE FILM?

YES!!!! We've already made the film.

HOW TO BECOME A CRIMINAL MASTERMIND is a feature length film that was shot in 2010. I co-wrote the screenplay, directed the film and helped raise the initial £12,000 we needed to make the film.

We are launching the film this September and with the help of Kickstarter we're getting ready for our Premiere in London and preparing the DVDs and posters.

OK, OK, SO WHAT'S IT ABOUT?

HOW TO BECOME A CRIMINAL MASTERMIND is about finding your inner criminal. It's a take on the typical British crime film - guns, gangsters and girls - but we twisted it a bit by setting it in a small village and including characters such as a Grandma, a Vicar and a Traffic Warden to make it truly British. Here's that trailer again if you want another peek.

WHAT WILL THE MONEY BE SPENT ON?

The money will go to all those little things that we need to launch/release the film; posters, DVDs, designs, organising the Premiere, PR and marketing, securing music rights and other similar areas.

The great thing about this project is that it is already finished so you won't be waiting years to get your rewards.

SO WHO'S IN IT?

We were really lucky to be able to cast an extremely talented group of actors, some of whom you probably know already.

JOERG STADLER as Kenneth

You may have seen Joerg in;

Saving Private Ryan with Tom Hanks, Spy Game with Brad Pitt or Ever After with Drew Barrymore.

Here's Joerg trying to convince Tom Hanks not to kill him, a situation any of us might find ourselves in one day.

SAM MASSEY as Bainbridge

PHILLIPP WEDDELL as Freddie

AUDREY HOLT as Grandma

GIDEON TURNER as Frank

JOHN FRICKER as Bruno

John is a young and talented comedic actor. Here he is attacking James Franco with his snake in Your Highness

ZOE RICHARDS as Angelique

HOW WAS THE FILM MADE FOR SO LITTLE MONEY?

The simple answer is we were smart. We wrote the script around locations we knew we could get for free or very little money, the cast and crew worked on deferred contracts and we pulled in a lot of favours.

HOW CAN I HELP?

Just click on the big green button on the right of this page and then choose your pledge level. In addition you can help by telling a few friends or posting the link to this page on your Facebook or Twitter so your friends and followers can get involved as well.


Risks and challenges

We're incredibly proud to have taken the film this far and since it has already been shot and edited the associated risks for the future are minimal.

A cinema venue has been secured for the premiere so all we need to do now is ensure we reach our target, launch the film and get it seen by as wide an audience as possible. The cast and crew make films we we love doing so and the most important thing is always that audiences watch and love our work. Thanks for taking the time to read our page :)
