We're raising money for the production of our film "Chasing Robert Barker"! That simple! This is the director's first feature film! After realising how difficult it is to get big producers to invest in new directors, we decided to make it on our own!
Well, not quite on our own...
WE NEED YOU TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN!!!!
What is Chasing Robert Barker??
"Chasing Robert Barker" is an independent, 90 minutes, psychological thriller shot on location in London. The film is seen from the perspective of a Paparazzi photographer before the wake of the "phone hacking" scandal.
The main character, David, is a paparazzo who's sent on a task to get pictures of Robert Barker, a famous actor, for a tabloid newspaper called 'The Morning'. The film follows David on his journey as he realizes the story he should be seeking, was his own.
What will this film feel like?
We've put together a mood film. A collage with scenes from other films and bits of soundtrack that gives a hint of the feel of the film. This is only a reference thing. None of this was actually produced by us. All copyrights belong to their owners.
Who are you guys?
We are a bunch of guys working in film, tv and advertising that worked with each other before and decided to do make a GREAT film together!
We also have:
- Azul Serra. Director of Photography.
- Bianca Turner. Production Designer.
- Patrick Moore. Composer.
- Maria Nefeli Zygopoulou. Co-writer. Associate Producer.
- Eleanna Santorinaiou - Production Coordinator
- Tatiana Danilova - Location Manager
- Anna Sbiera - Costume Designer
- Camila Hipwood - Storyboards
- Jane Gallagher - Casting Director
What have you done before?
Well, a lot of stuff. Click on our names above to check out our previous works. But many of the crew on "Chasing Barker" worked a few years ago on another film written and directed by Daniel Florêncio. This film, called "Awfully Deep" was longlisted for a BAFTA for Best Short Film in 2012. It went to many festivals around the world, won a few awards and it's currently being broadcast on "Canal +" in France! Oh yeah! It was also a Staff Pick on Vimeo!
Why do you need this money?
Films cost A LOT of money to make. I mean... A LOT! We do have some money saved that are getting some of the production costs rolling. But we won't make it without YOUR help! The money we're raising will go towards:
- Art Department
- Etc.. Etc...
And what do I get?
Here's a brief description of some of the other rewards for our backers!!
These are only SOME of our rewards. There are others such as becoming a Co-Producer. You could get a walk in part, etc, etc... Check out the bar on the right handside of the page!

Where the idea for this film came from?
That's it! The likes of Murdoch won't make this film.
But YOU can make it!
What are you going to do with the money?
The money goes straight into the production of the film. And thats it.
Very importantly! We ONLY receive the funds IF WE REACH THE GOAL! If we don't reach our target of £50,000, we don't get ANY CASH, and YOUR CARD DOESN'T GET CHARGED!
Want to use Paypal?
Due to people's requests we now are accepting contributions over Paypal! For those in Brazil, in the US or without a credit card, maybe you'll prefer this!
Simply donate the amount of the perk you want to receive and that's it. Your contribution over Paypal WILL NOT count immediately as a pledge here on Kickstarter, but we'll transfer the funds over, so, at the end, it'll work just the same. Just remember, for pledges over £35 for those that are outside the UK, please add another £2 for shipping. Many thanks.
Can I GIFT an incentive?
Of course you can! When you make a pledge, give us YOUR name and details. After the deadline we'll send everyone that contributed to send us their details. Then you can send the details of the person you want to send the GIFT to!
Can we exceed the goal?
YES, PLEASE!!! Just to reach our goal would be awesome, but if we happen to EXCEED it, it'd be fantastic. It could mean a widespread marketing campaign that could bring the film quicker to theaters. It could mean a faster post-production! Better sound-mixing! It could mean a special packaging for the DVD. A special printing of the Making Of. If we exceed, it basically would make Chasing Robert Barker a better film!

Risks and challenges
The challenges during a film production are many. But the secret is to be prepared for them. That's why having a proper budget comes in handy.
Many of the risks and challenges during a film production can be easily solved by an experienced crew. Which we are. The talent behind this film is very seasoned, with many hours spent in a film set, producing commercials, films, tv spots, etc...
The main risk during a film production ( and one we'll try our best to avoid ) are delays. At some part of the process, things can get stuck, and we know we can sort then out, but when problems arise, you need some time to solve them. So, if there are delays during the production and if it affects the delivery of the rewards, bare with us! It might take a bit longer, but you'll all get them!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
