Since we’ve had such an amazing response in such a short time, we want to go higher so we can make this film bigger and better. If we can push for $300,000 this will mean we can secure international talent (which international actor do you want to see on the big screen with Miss Fisher???).

$250,000 - Goal REACHED
Amazing! We hit our goal under 2 days after we started the campaign! The show of support in the first day has been so incredible. Now we will really be able to take Miss Fisher internationally by sending our our cast and crew to proposed filming locations in London and Israel.
We know that you want more Miss Fisher! Let’s work together to bring back Miss Fisher and her crime fighting cohorts…this time to the big screen.
We're finalising the film script of Miss Fisher & the Crypt of Tears - and we want to bring you along for the adventure - but, we need your help to fund a gap in our financing, and prove to our investors that we have a strong fan-base who will come out to watch the film.
To do this we have set up a Kickstarter Crowdfunding Campaign for Miss Fisher the Movie, where supporters of the series can pledge funds toward the making of the film. Please pledge as little or as much as you can so we can make the film a reality. If all goes to (Nathan's) plan, we hope to start production in mid-2018.
Every Cloud Productions is proposing to produce a feature film building on the successful Miss Fisher Murder Mysteries television series, and is undertaking this Kickstarter campaign to raise a portion of the production budget for the film.
Set in the late 1920’s, Miss Fisher & the Crypt of Tears honors the heightened exoticisms of the murder mystery genre as the Honourable Miss Phryne Fisher, lady detective, escapes the small screen and takes off on a global adventure - via romantic wayside stops in the Far East, glamorous sojourns in the mansions of London, and a battle to survive the rolling sands of the Arabian Desert long enough to find the missing treasure, solve numerous murders and break all aviation records as she wings her way home again!
Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries is based on the novels of Australian author Kerry Greenwood. The stylish and Honourable Miss Phryne Fisher solves crimes with derring-do and continues her playful frisson with Detective Inspector Jack Robinson.
Our lady sleuth sashays through the back lanes and jazz clubs of late 1920’s Melbourne, fighting injustice with her pearl handled pistol and her dagger sharp wit. Leaving a trail of admirers in her wake, our thoroughly modern heroine makes sure she enjoys every moment of her lucky life.
The televsion series of Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries ran for 3 seasons and a total of 34 episodes across it’s run. The series premiered on ABC TV in Australia, and has sold to 247 territories in 179 countries (we don’t know how that works either).
It screens or has screened on platforms including ABC (Aus), Netflix, Acorn Online, Foxtel (Aus), Channel 5 (UK), UKTV’s Alibi Channel (UK), France3 (France) – titled “Miss Fisher Enquête”, Rai (Italy), Knowledge Network (Canada), Kanal 5 (Sweden), PBS (USA), Sony Germany (Germany), Globosat (Brazil) – titled “Os mistérios de Miss Fisher”, as well as other territories including Norway, Denmark, Singapore, Hungry, Poland, Malaysia, Austria, and various pan territory deals including Asia and Latin America.
We always had grand plans to bring Miss Fisher to the big screen. She’s a natural action hero - the female version of James Bond or Indiana Jones. After season 3 premiered in Australia 2 years ago, the desire for Miss Fisher didn’t die down, and as our cast and crew went off to do different parts of the world, all the while we continued to develop the idea of turning Miss Fisher into a movie.
After much scripting and development later we’re finally here, but to make the leap to the big screen we need your support to prove to our investors that we have a strong fan-base that will come out and watch the film. We see crowdfunding as a great way to engage further with you - the incredible Miss Fisher fans around the world. We want to share this experience with you all and take you along for the ride.
How will the funds will be used?
Miss Fisher & the Crypt of Tears will be a stand-alone theatrical release, and promises audiences exotic locations, sumptuous interiors and glamorous costumes as the world of Miss Fisher takes the leap from the small screen.
We need your support to bring Miss Fisher to the big screen. Kickstarter funds will be an important component of the film budget and the funds raised will be used to elevate Miss Fisher to the cinematic experience she deserves, including international locations, visual effects, production design, and of course more glamorous costumes.
Phryne has got to be able to fly beyond Australian shores to cement her position as a bona fide international action hero. To do justice to Miss Fisher’s global adventure outlined in the script, we hope to film in countries around the world such as Morocco, Israel, and London which are all under consideration.
Risks and challenges
The Miss Fisher movie project faces the normal risks of film production - but with the same team who created the series, we will work to ensure the film is likewise properly funded, has contingency plans and is fully insured before we go into production.
Our biggest challenges are co-ordinating the schedules of our lead cast and crew and locking down a date to film. We will endeavour to bring back as many of the key cast as we can to make the film a success.
Miss Fisher & the Crypt of Tears is a mid range budget feature being produced out of Australia, so there are always challenges to manage big budget ideas with limited resources but having made 3 seasons of the series, we know we can elevate Miss Fisher to the big screen.
With regard to delivering on our rewards, we will work hard to get your merchandise, script excerpts, postcards and other rewards to you safely and on schedule. Our distribution schedule is not finalised, so some rewards may be delayed as they tie in with the premiere of the film. We will send regular update to our backers so you know first hand the progress of the campaign, your rewards and of course the film.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
