About this project

What is Sorry To Bug You?

Sorry To Bug You is a live action, short film about a reclusive model builder who befriends an intelligent bug and, to his horror, discovers that there's more to this creature than meets the eye. Soon his world is turned upside down as he uncovers the truth.

Risks and challenges

When creating a film with such high production value, estimated deadlines can easily get pushed back, especially when it comes to completing visual effects. Thankfully, working with The Mill will allow us to make progress on the VFX in a much shorter amount of time than if we were to do it alone.

There's always a chance we could take longer to complete the film than intended, and if that were to happen, we'd inform all of our backers as soon as possible and provide them with a detailed update on why it has been delayed.

One other potential challenge will be collaborating with múm to create the music. Since they are based in Iceland it could take some time to make revisions to the score, but we are confident this will be unlikely.

Finishing a project of this magnitude is quite a feat, which is why not everyone can do it. However, between all of the talented artists and with your generous support, this idea will come to life.
