An emotional & tense story about an old man, Irwin, burdened with a life of regret and his nephew, Edward, whose constant thoughts lie on others looking at & judging him.
They are "The Renegades" in a foreign land, where they are not only the enemy of, but fugitives from their own. The world is against them and so is time, in their situation anyone would struggle. Coming to a realisation that they need money, Irwin finds work at a local cafe, serving drinks, desserts and cleaning tables.
Being in the light of day is dangerous for anyone when the world is against you.
This story is not just about the desire to stay hidden, or a desperate plea to live a prosperous life, but about people, all kinds of different people. An old man full of regret and desire to guide, a young man trying to find his place in the world, worried of everyone around him judging and confronting him. A middle aged man who has lost his faith in life and lost his morals, a young woman just entering the world finding her place and making a most pivotal decision.
Not just individuals, but people, a community sharing their thoughts on the world.
We'd like to tell this story, to tell everyone's story, some more important than the other, but in noway are they not meaningful.
Our Aim is to raise £6,000. This is our most ambitious project yet. By raising this amount, we will be able to build the world we so heavily desire to bring to life. You may believe that's an awful lot of money for a "short film". You're right. It's a lot to ask for. You might think "how can a something so short, be not only worth that amount but actually need it?"
We know that some of the stories in the world, the shorter they are, the more compelling and effective they can be. If a world that you've seen for 15 minutes can evoke any emotion from you, not only have we done our jobs, but the characters have to.
Here's a short list of the things that you'll be helping support:
- Production Design (sets, locations, costume)
- Cast & Crew
- Equipment (Lighting, Cameras, Stands & more.)
- Accommodation (Cast & Crew)
We are a group of extremely determined & attentive filmmakers, all currently studying BA (Hons) in Film Production at the University of Portsmouth.

Helping us reach a wider audience and sharing our story and passion with the world. Please find our social media below.
Please join us on this very ambitious but exciting adventure on bring this world to life!
Risks and challenges
Our film is not something you could just create in your living room, with zero funding and you camera phone. This is a world that we are building. Telling a story of vulnerable and experienced people. Now of course you can tell a story in anyway you can as-long as you heart is in the right place. However, for us, just having enough heart and creativity isn't enough. Shooting in a studio requires funding and our world requires designers, here in lies our challenges and our biggest risk of all. Deciding to shooting in a cafe is a challenge, there are plenty of health and safety risks for lighting and if something goes wrong, we could lose valuable studio, crew and casts time. Leaving us with either an incomplete story, damage to studio relationships and actor well-being risked.
This is not just a career path for us. This is our lives, what we love to do, to tell a story, to create and design. To meet new people. To overcome this fear is to take a leap of faith, trust your colleagues, friends and family.
