THE FOX - Starring Himesh Patel

£2496 PLEDGED OF £4000 GOAL!

FIRST GOAL REACHED! HELP US MAKE OUR STRETCH GOAL!

Wow we're so incredibly blown away by all our supporters. Thank you so much for pledging and for all your kind messages. But we're not finished yet. We would love to make The Fox even bigger and better than we previously thought possible and so our new stretch goal is £4000. Amongst using better equipment we would also be able to cover our post-production costs including editing, sound design, music and colour correction. Plus we would be able to enter the film into festivals such as Cannes, Sundance, Toronto, London, Berlin, Venice & others. 
In addition if we make our stretch goal of £4000, all our supporters will get a link to the previous short film from Himesh - Rapscallions.

IN SHORT:

  • The Fox is about two thieves who meet burgling the same house
  • It is a film about reflection. 
  • It stars Himesh Patel (Eastenders)
  • The screenplay was chosen from hundreds to receive a small grant from the Earls Court Film Festival where it will premiere at the end of the year
  • The filmmaking team behind it have won awards all over the world and their films have screened at over forty film festivals
  • The money raised will be used to hire equipment, locations, and a great cast & crew
  • If we beat the target the extra money will be used for post-production and music
WHY ARE WE ASKING FOR YOUR HELP?
Independent films are very hard to finance even with a top script great actors. Crowd funding the film on Kickstarter not only allows us to make the film for a cinema audience but also means our audience can be part of the film making process before the film has even been made. We really value any support you can give us. Please message us if you have any questions: info@bloodyrascal.com 

When two thieves meet robbing the same house, they get a chance to see the harm they cause in people's lives. Will either of them change their ways?

The Fox is a short film that combines elements of noir, dark comedy and crime thrillers against an urban backdrop. It is set in West London where the rich are an easy target for experienced thieves. 

This film is about reflection. Amidst the action and drama it's really a look at what it takes to change yourself, to sacrifice everything you've built up for a better life, a change, a new start. 

The Fox has already received a production grant from the Earls Court Film Festival where it will be screened at the end of the year. We're really delighted that the ECFF has chosen The Fox from hundreds of other entries. The ECFF board commended the screenplay for The Fox as being 'an original fresh & entertaining voice'.

The Fox will star Himesh Patel (Eastenders).

Himesh is a hugely talented actor who despite being in his 20s already has almost decade of experience playing Tamwar Masood in Eastenders.

David's Showreel

 We want to shoot the film with the latest equipment, the most experienced crew and best actors possible to ensure the film is of the highest quality. We can't do this without your help.

To make this film we need the bare minimum which is £2000. This will cover basic costs. 

Our dream would be to make £4000. This would enable us to also cover post-production, music, marketing, screening and festival costs. 

Supporting us in whatever way you can either by making a donation or by sharing our kickstarter project or both is really appreciated. 

THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP & LOVE!!!!

Risks and challenges

Every project has its risks but we are incredibly lucky to have such a talented cast and crew in place already that we do foresee any unexpected problems with our production.

Having the backing of the Earls Court Film Festival not only allows us a grant and a festival to screen the film but the trust are also helping us out with filming permits and other area related issues. It also means that our film is due in November at the latest so we will not delay the shoot.

Weather is always a factor especially when shooting in England but rest assured we have a contingency plan if rain does impact our shoot.
