We have decided to make a short psychological film of a duration between 5-6 minutes. Evolving around two students who set out on a dark mission, to kill another one of their students giving the rest of their school passing grades. The film will use stylistic and obscure filmmaking elements, inspired by film waves such as surrealism and French new wave. As well as focussing on themes of stress upon students caused by examinations, good grades and society. We believe this has a strong place in the short film industry, through its dark and compelling storyline with certain moments of comedic use.
The budget will go towards:
With the help from your funding alongside a talented cast and passionate crew we will be able to make this short psychological thriller look aesthetically much more pleasing and realistic. A higher budget will enable us to require better quality props and costume. The cast and crew will be able to enjoy and work harder on the film, having food and beverages made available to them. Transport will be available to us in order to quickly move our equipment, cast and crew to different locations in a short amount of time. All these obstacles can be overcome through your help!
Any left over money from the budget will go towards the film being uploaded to short film festivals. We would be eternally grateful for anyone to share this project with friends and family to enable us to reach our intended budget!
Risks and challenges
The risks of our project include not being able to get our cast and crew to the intended locations to shoot in, forcing us to settle for a location that will not be up to the highest standard. The possibility of delays are also possible due to poor weather for exterior shoots. Therefore re-shoot days may be needed, and in order for these to be achieved a higher budget will be needed. The technical equipment will be funded by Bournemouth University with students who are fully qualified to handle the technological aspect behind them. However we believe that with the intended budget our cast and crew will have the passion and willpower to create this motion picture.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
