We're a small, passionate team that love Horror movies! It's that simple! 

You can help us achieve our goal of making one!

With your help, our mission is to bring to life the terrifying tale of the Witch's Doll in a full length feature film. Inspired by movies such as The Conjuring, The Boy and Chucky for the look, feel and terror of a possessed object, The Witch's Doll will both entertain and terrify audiences with her relentless pursuit of vengeance.

So, what's the film about?

Ambitious young true crime writer Adeline Gray travels to a remote English village to unravel the mystery behind a family’s murder. While investigating the prime suspect’s now derelict ‘Manor in the woods’, she notices a creepy life-size Victorian doll is following her from room-to-room. After a series of terrifying and inexplicable events, she believes the doll is carrying a hateful spirit wanting to be left alone. Desperate for a career defining story, Adeline's persistent search for answers soon puts her too at the mercy of the Witch's Doll.

Why are we so passionate about the project?

(Director, Lawrence) For me personally, Horror offers a filmmaker the chance to create characters and even world's so different from our own. The passion here for me is in how to create these characters and worlds in the most visually striking way. Working with my talented team we've been able to build The Witch's doll and develop ways of bringing her to life! From the most basic pupeteering to advanced 3D animation, it's the developing and applying of these skills that keep me so invested in projects like this. The Witch's Doll is intended to feel like on of the classic horror movies I watched while studying film at University. Again, the potential to design a setting for these characters so removed from my own is so much fun. By investing in our film, you are truly helping me and other talented individuals achieve their dream of making a horror feature film.

What will you spend the money on?

All money raised will be spent on making this possible, from the cost of actors to locations and even food, filmmaking isn't cheap. When you consider a low budget horror film in hollywood is made for around $5 Million, every penny will help our film become better!

Have you made films in the past?

This would be my first feature film but I and my company Up a Notch have been making short films for 10 years now. We have been fortunate to have made films shown at the Cannes Film Festival among other festivals, I personally have directed for a small project for the BBC alongside producing promotional films for some of the UK's most recognisable businesses. These experiences have all helped me on my journey to making my first feature. I have felt for the past year now that the time has come to take this step. This is why I appriciate any support I am lucky enough to receive to get me and my team there.

I don't have much to contribute

That's okay! Thank you for taking the time to take a look at our project. If you can help in anyway, big or small, we'd really appreciate it.

Will I see the finished film on DVD?

We hope so! As silly as this may sound, I personally love popping down to my local shops and seeing what low budget movies are on sale. For years I've kept a close eye on what low budget horror movies appeal to people and the filmmakers and even distributers behind them. It's been my ambition for some time to join this group of filmmakers whose films have been made available for the public to enjoy!

 

Finally, we hope you're as excited about this project coming to life as we are. 

Thank you for your pledge!
