The Blue Door
'Clare is a caring nurse opening the door to her new job. But maybe some doors are best left shut...'
Starring Gemma Whelan
The Blue Door, starring Game of Thrones' Gemma Whelan, is a sinister British horror short, set to leave the hairs on your neck standing on end...but there's still work to do.
100% Recycled Set
We filmed The Blue Door in a big old studio with an incredible set, which was entirely recycled. Designed and constructed by the amazing team at Dresd.
Filming is Complete... but
We sourced effective lighting and had beautiful camera work, but we want the high end quality of the film to continue.
It turns out, Post Production can be just as expensive as the filming and we need help raising money to pay for the sound design, special effects and grading.
We also want to ensure this film gets the best possible start in life and is viewed by as many people as possible, both professional, industry, those who have worked so hard on it and most importantly - you guys.
We'd love to push The Blue Door to one day become a big feature length, but we need to make sure the shorter version in seen in all the best showcases.
Applying films to festivals costs a pretty dollar - there are the entry costs, poster design / distribution and a website to build. To ensure we give this baby the best of options, we need help to cough up a little bit more.
Let that be a wrap!
We have run out of money (studio / lighting hire, catering and crew accommodation emptied our pockets!) But we're hoping with your help, we can get The Blue Door over the finish line and onto your screens.
We hope you enjoy the trailer and love you lots,

Risks and challenges
We're fully equipped to finish the project and are already making arrangements with people in the industry to get The Blue Door over the finish line.
Those helping us are doing so at a significant concession, they also have other clients to consider. With your financial backing, we know we can guarantee the most talented and experienced of people will help The Blue Door reach the most polished of finishes, as well as be as scary, unique and exciting as it can possibly be.
Whilst we have the contacts and people with the know how, we need money to support the following:
- VFX, grading and some editing
- Sound Design
Distribution and Screening:
- Festival entry costs
- Poster Design
- Website Design
- Screenings (both nationally and internationally!)
The major risk though?
If we don't meet this final donation, all the hard work we have put in up to this point could go unseen, which frightens us more than the film!
