"Jesse has written an atmospheric, powerful and thrilling screenplay and based on his last film I can't wait to see the finished product. This is a project well worth contributing to. It will undoubtably be a success."

Peter Morgan, Oscar Nominated Screenwriter of Rush, Frost/Nixon, Hereafter, and The Queen.

Hi, I'm Jesse Ross - Writer Director of THE OTHER SIDE OF HOME.  Welcome to my Kickstarter campaign!  I have spent the good part of three years writing and rewriting the script which I am finally proud of and hugely excited to be finally attempting to make it into a film.

I wrote, directed and co-produced the acclaimed short film THIRST in 2013 and co-created and wrote the drama series THIS IS YOUR DEATH for Working Title in 2012. This is my second short film.

I need your help to make this film a reality! My target is a fraction of the cost of what a film of this quality would normally cost. I have so many incredible crew members who have agreed to work for a reduced fee because they are passionate about the script and the creative collaboration. But there are essential costs that can't be avoided such as camera and lighting hire, insurance, shooting permits, catering etc. Every penny that you pledge will be used to its absolute maximum. This is a feature film level production with professional grade crew, equipment and visual effects. Not to mention an incredibly talented cast.

THE OTHER SIDE OF HOME is the story of Helen, a woman who dies too soon. We follow her into a disturbing yet familiar afterlife where she can see the living world through mirrors. She discovers her husband in one of these mirrors and is compelled to contact him from the other side. 

 My first film was the ten minute survival thriller THIRST. Watch it below!

Risks and challenges

We are planning to shoot the film in two major shooting blocks. The first in late May and the second in late June. We aim to edit throughout July and perfect the sound mix, visual effects and colour grade through August. A September screening is our target and our rewards reflect this. However filmmaking is often delayed! We will do our utmost to complete the film on schedule but there may a delay of a month or two. Please be patient. Thank you for your support, Jesse
