Damian believes the world is flat, a crew of arrogant documentary film producers make it their aim to fly to America and prove him wrong. When Damian reveals a fully operational rocket in his backyard the crew's curiosity starts to lead them over the 'edge'. 

Will Damian's theories 'take off' or will they fall 'flat'? 

How you can Help

Our project is at the end of the Pre-Production stage which has been made possible by our very talented crew. We are now at the stage where we need your funding to make the Production Phase possible. With your help we will be using our budget for locations, costumes, props, transportation, actors and much more.

Who we are

 Software

We are lucky enough to have access to a range of high end software which we will incorporate into our production pipeline. 

Nuke, After Effects, Photoshop, Maya and Mudbox will be used for VFX compositing.

Pro Tools, DaVinci Resolve and Premiere Pro will be used for Sound Mixing and Editing.

 Thanks for Reading, now all you need to do is take a chance on us!!

Risks and challenges

We are expecting to shoot late January into early February then go straight into Post-Production. Our film will be ready to apply for Film Festivals in the summer and will continue to be submitted throughout the following year.
Our main challenge is to create the landscape of a barren, southern USA. We will be using our creative ability to manipulate our Cornish landscape and convert it into our desired location.

Our film is scripted and story-boarded with the work of our concept artists and 3d modellers. We are ready for the next phase and prepared to overcome any obstacles that we may face!
