About

Hello, it's Alex & Nick here!

It is with huge pride that we share with you all our story and what we want to achieve. With your help, Alex and I can embark on this journey and uncover the truth of what it's like for others just like us.

'Handsome', a documentary about siblings with Down Syndrome, is going to be a feature film that we want everyone in the world to see. 

We had the most incredible response from the above teaser on Facebook; hitting 25,000 views so far and receiving hundreds of shares and positive messages from across the world! 

My friends, Ed & Luke White made this wonderful two minute teaser and you can find their website at www.boxclever-media.com 

This money will pay for the production costs; the equipment, transport and accommodation. It will enable us to 'kickstart' our project in the UK.

If we are fortunate enough to gain any extra funds then these will go toward our worldwide mission of revealing what it's like for siblings in the US, Australia, India, Vietnam and Russia. We will then enter the film into various festivals, to showcase it and spread the message to as wide an audience as possible.

Having been so moved by the many wonderful responses to our trailer, we now want to give others a platform to share their story.

Thank you so much for reading, watching our video and for backing us to get this documentary the funding it so desperately needs.

Thank you,

Alex & Nick

Risks and challenges

Raising £30,000 to shoot in the UK is the first part of achieving our ultimate goal of telling these worldwide stories. Without significant funding then this vital documentary will never get off the ground. If we cannot secure further funding from this Kickstarter, then a UK based film is all that we can achieve.
