Hello, I'm Will. The guy talking in this trailer.

My film is all about when a British academic asked me to follow him to Los Angeles because he wanted to prove that the CIA had murdered a Hollywood screenwriter.... to stop a film from being made.

Seriously. This is not your normal conspiracy documentary.

I am not a conspiracy theorist type person - at all. I got sucked into this mystery before I even knew what was going on. It’s been five years since we started and it has been ups and downs the whole way.

I followed this academic to America to build a case against the CIA. We interviewed a whole bunch of people who said some really unexpected things.  Some of them have now sadly passed away - so I want to tell the tale before there's none of us left.

I don't want to say too much more because it will ruin the film, but put it this way... the guy I followed in the film won't even talk about it anymore. And to be honest, I don't really want to either - but it is our story and it feels ludicrous not to share it. 

So far, all the money I've spent has been from my own pocket/credit card. This crowd funding money is needed to pay for the film to be polished off. For things like sound mixing and colour grading. Also, about a third of the money will be used to enter film festivals (its get quite pricey when you enter lots of them).

The film is a feature documentary - Its runtime is 85 minutes.

Risks and challenges

IF we get the funding, then the film will be finished within a month. That's a fact.

The worst thing that can happen is that we don't get in the best film festivals. If that's the case, then we will have to enter less prestigious festivals (who are less picky). This will ensure the film gets seen all over the world... even if its not at Cannes and Tribeca.

The good news is, that I've maxed out several credit cards to get this far.

...I know that doesn't sound that good.... but what it means is... that I have so much vested in the project - I won't give up until people far and wide have a chance to see the film.
